Big Fat Storm!

We have had snow all week long! It started Monday night and hasn't stopped. With Monday being a holiday and the storm, there has been no school all week. That leaves plenty of free time to shovel snow. Today was the most so far, at least a foot overnight and it continued. The worst thing is when the plow comes by and piles a 3ft x 4ft heavy pile of snow across your driveway. Today Ernie and I spent about 4 hours shoveling, some areas more than once. This included Ernie shoveling off our garage roof because it was getting really deep and we're supposed to get more snow. The garage doesn't get much sun and no heat from in the house. This afternoon the snow turned to rain which made every thing very soggy and snow very heavy. We have had about 3ft of snow so far and are supposed to get 2ft more by Saturday morning. There is flooding in the state where they don't get snow. Lure coursing was canceled this weekend because a bridge to the area washed out. Now Arizona is under a state of emergency, pretty crazy. Zephyr and Astro love the snow of course, and besides being very tired from shoveling it, I love snow too. We stocked up on supplies last weekend, it's important to have things like pie on hand when your stuck home shoveling snow! Pictures and more to come soon.

Can't wait to see the pictures. Although I love the snow too that sounds kind of overwhelming. Glad to be in California!
