....storm and after.......

 the storm started like this....as you can see....fine grains..accompanied by wind chill.....
my car within fifteen minutes after parking in the driveway.....
next morning......my hubby clearing the path and driveways....shovel,snow blower ,salt..anything that works!!!

the main porch also had snow...which is very rare ....since its all covered.....
this is the fair idea one can get....its the main road...but its all snow...thou the city has cleaned it!
thats the way to my house and front door......imagine the snow!!!
thats my hubby helping our neighbor who is seventy year old guy cleaning his driveway!
my poor mail box...how deserted it looks!!!
...the bushes all covered with snow ...looked like frosted cup cakes........

there is still lots of snow on curbs and side walks....though major highways are clean but still lot to be done ...once again thanks to all of you and your comments.....luckily everything was good ...no power outage or any-kind of mis-happening...life is back to normal...But that experience of watching the storm till 2am was awesome experience...how situation changed from ..very calm ...to an absolute storm with windchill's and tons of snow....mother nature showed us its role and its domination...all schools and offices were closed....there was no traffic...I took my car out in the evening to see what was going on...But it was absolutely quite....very slippery and most of the places were closed.....
today its very sunny say..lots of sunshine...everything is normal But with the snow all over the place it has lot of glare...one can easily go blind while driving...if you are not wearing sun glasses :)

I know its harsh but still ...I wanna experience all that, so much of snow once in my life.It looks so very awesome.

And your hubby has made your patio table so very attractive...Kudos to his creative mind.
