I haven't heard final numbers of how much snow we got here in West Newton, but it's well over 2 feet. I was really excited about making a 8-10' snowman, but this was too much snow. There was nowhere to put our snowman! Without further ado, here's what you really want...the pictures. :) (You'll notice there are no pictures of Toby in the snow. That's because he HATES it. He even went on a 24 hour bathroom strike.)
|This picture was taken Friday night - the final amount of snow was more than double this.|
|Our neighbors' archway looked awesome in the snow!|
|Saturday morning just before the snow stopped.|
|Our neighbor, Paul, realized his motorcycle get-up also protected him from the elements while shoveling!|
|Snow on a bush in front of our house - see the face?|
The wind was crazy during this storm, which made for really awesome snowdrifts. Here are a few...
|Really awesome drift between our cars|
|This drift doubled over on itself and made a cool hole.|
Once we were completely exhausted from shoveling and (mostly) had our cars free, we decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. Here are a few shots.
|(That's a bird bath)|
|When there's more than 2 feet of snow, you have to toss it pretty high when shoveling!|
The snow on the top of my car was almost as tall as the garage beside it!
|Cross country skiers were out in full force|
|Skiing down Watertown Street|
|Even the snowman was surrounded|
Even though the shoveling is obnoxious, I thought Nemo was a lot of fun. I'm still at the point where I think tons of snow is just hilarious. :)
