Be Careful What You Wish For

We have been wishing for snow for days now and guess what?  We woke up to 3 feet of snow this morning and in places where the wind blew and it drifted, it was 4 feet deep!

Dad and mom were outside at 7AM tackling all of this white stuff and 8 hours later, they're still not finished. 
 Mom said that there was no need for us to be on-leash. Where would we go?   But she didn't unclip us so we just stuck to the shoveled paths.  The snow banks are as tall as we are and in some places, over the tops of our heads!
 This is the front of our house. Our porch roof has a very tall white hat!
 The snow is almost up to the top of our fence!
 This is the road in front of our house.  It's about 1PM at this point.  There is a driving ban in effect. No vehicles on the road unless you're a plow or an emergency vehicle or a medical person.
The snow plows couldn't keep up with the volume. There is still a foot of snow in the road and Deepwood Lane, the street that runs along the side of our property, hasn't seen a snow plow yet!
It's the end of a long day for us.
We'll be back outside tomorrow bright and early to go at it again!
So be careful what you wish for.   In our case, it was more than we needed!

So until next time..........

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Oh wow! That is one heck of a lot of snow. We are a bit jealous but understand how much hard work it is to shovel such a vast quantity.

Have fun playing.

Tell your mom and dad to take it easy. 8 hours of pushing snow is no fun. I got about a foot of snow and that is plenty for me.

Beautiful but ugh! Your moms arms must be looking very buff!!

scotsmad said...

We've been lying in the airconditioning watching Nemo on the News. Boy you really got hit. Hope you have power.

Looks like it's fun though...if you don't have to shovel. Although as we're all short, it could be a problem.

Mitch & Molly we hope you and your peeps stay warm and safe. Gosh that really is a load of snow. We have never heard of a vehicle ban before but it does make sense. Enjoy if you can. Have a super snowy Sunday.
Best wishes Molly

Sam said...

Okay S and G, that's enough. Load the kids, pack your bags, it's sunny with a few clouds and an expected daytime high of 56 degrees and no snow in the city at all. Come on up - we'll have dinner ready. Porch light will be on.

Sue said...

It's not fair! You have way more snow than you need and we haven't had any all winter. It's almost 60 here today but you can send us some of that stuff if you want to.

OMD! You've got so much snow!!! Brrr....

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Tough to do snow zoomies when the snow is over your head... Then it becomes more like snow snorkeling! And yeah, we'd be the first to say that you've almost got too much of a good thing! BTW, we LOVE your header photo!

Enjoy,

Princess Patches said...

That is a LOT of snow! My mom remembers waking up to that much snow when she was growing up in Ohio. Back then, they didn't know it was coming...it just snuck up on everybody! Tell your pawrents not to wear themselves out! Stay warm and have fun!

Aire-hugs,
Patches

Hi, Mitch and Molly -

You sure got a lot of snow! We got about a foot of the white stuff. It took Mama and Papa a long time to shovel because there was rain mixed in with the snow.

Have a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
