Winter doldrums: Page 4: Way too much snow

In the last 11 days we've measured over 50" of new snow.  It all started on a Tuesday with 36".  My brother had actually flown into town from his home on the west coast for a little family reunion, and was planning to fly out on Tuesday afternoon.  That turned out to be an impossible task, as the airport began canceling flights on Monday evening in anticipation of the big storm, and a driving ban was imposed by the governor.  The bonus was that we had two more days together, plus we never lost electricity in spite of wind gusts near 50 miles per hour!

Now I hear that more snow is expected to begin tomorrow and to last four days.  It will be light, but total accumulation is likely to be 8"-16".

Below is a "portrait" of my brother's rental car during that first storm.  (The rental car company did provide him with a plastic window scraper, which made us laugh. Not only that, but it was in the trunk!)
