Scenes from a Blizzard

Teddy had to walk along the snow to go outside. Our neighbor across the alley shoveled out his parking space into our back yard. Christina and I were both annoyed by this, but we couldn't figure out a good reason to be annoyed. That is, until Christina realized that the pile of snow allowed Teddy to walk right over the fence. She had to shovel it away. (By that time, I had made it back to work.)

Here's me shoveling off my car. I think it's my car...

And here's the house swathed in snow.

No Wonder Maryland Has Budget Trouble...

"In Prince George's, by contrast, public works officials said primary roads would not be passable until at least 36 hours after the storm's end. County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) said he would seek state reimbursement for the cost of snow removal, since the county had already depleted the $1.2 billion budgeted for that purpose."

Snow Time

Here's a view out our front door from earlier today. I dug out the digital camera. Christina asked why I took the picture of our neighbor's house rather than ours. The answer is I wasn't going to go out in this mess! It's only getting worse...
