You can see the pile of snow at the end of our driveway is getting pretty high. TJ got on the top of his van and jumped into the far side of this. Fortunately, because it was snow shoveled from our driveways, it was pretty firm so he only sank about chest deep into it. He then dug his way back up, and I pushed Nate up to him on a sled from our side of the driveway. Nate then had a blast sledding on his own private mountain--no need to go the whole way over to the hill at Algonkian!
You can see the snow is up to the windows. It's going to be interesting when it all melts.
Bent though they may be, I'm hopeful none of the branches are going to actually break.
Looking towards the Tunnel.
That is one pretty tree, especially iced in snow.
Look how high those snow piles are--higher than the truck that is plowing them!
Sidewalks are dug out, but parking lot is still buried.
We dug out enough of our cul de sac that Slawek could get going in his big 4 wheel drive truck and make it to Bentley, which was plowed even though we weren't, and then to the main roads. Rex then went to sleep on my lap.
Notice how the there is one giant icicle from the roof to the bird feeder and even below it. The icicle at the corner is getting pretty long too.
This is a close up of the bird-feeder so you can see how it turned into a giant icicle. Amazingly, the birds still find a way to perch on it and get something to eat.
Quit a pile of snow, isn't it? Christine, it will probably still be here when you come home!
