3 hours later and this is what the same view I showed you earlier now looks like. At first it doesn't seem like a lot but there is a lot of snow blowing around and you see that the neighbor's front steps are now completely covered in snow.
My husband shoveled a path in the backyard for our dogs and it looks like it's a good 12 inches deep. The poor little things didn't know what to do with all that snow because it's almost over their heads!
We've had some power surges now and then but things are holding out very well for us here. Hope the rest of the snowstorm's victims are doing OK.
