Nemo photos

And, no, Nemo in this case isn’t a cute little clownfish.  Nemo was a giant record setting Blizzard/Hurricane that just dropped 2-3 feet of snow on us and flooded out parts of the New England coastline.  Whee?

On to the pictures.

This is what is looked like when we opened our front door after it had finally finished snowing.  For reference, our front door is half a story up from the sidewalk and the snow had piled up just high enough that Rerun could walk to the front door and just stick his chin over it before turning tail and running back to the safety of the apartment.

The tops of that metal fence you see off to the left of the photo come up to about my ribcage.  That is a lot of snow to clear, folks.

Naturally, we waited a little while to have a meal and get changed into suitable snow fighting attire before heading out to tackle that.

Scratch did come outside to inspect our work.  He’d been practically jonesing to get out into the snow since the storm had started our way.  He finally got his chance.

When this was taken we hadn't actually made it to the sidewalk yet.  There wasn't anywhere for him to go but UP and he wasn't relishing the idea of jumping into a snowbank.

Yep, that’s our boy.  He may be crazy, but he’s generally not stupid.

Once we made it to the sidewalk it was time to get out our handy little electric snowblower.  It may be small but it is mighty.

Notice how the snow is actually higher than the snowblower?

Still, the snowblower made our jobs easier.  As we were clearing our neighbor’s steps as well, we had a lot of work to do and this made it better.  Also, it threw snow way up in the air, which was fun.

Whee!  Snow cloud!  I think our neighbors thought it was snowing again.

We worked until we lost the light.  This was the view of the sunset that I was able to get looking down the street.

I figure after several solid days of iron grey skies we were due for something pretty.

And finally, a couple of photos for reference.

Those snow covered plants in the shot?  Those are part of a rose garden.  The plants closest to the house are about 6 feet tall.

And one more.

Geoff is standing next to this pile of snow for scale.  No, it isn't a buried car, it is a pile from a plow.  It is as tall as he is, easily 8-9 feet long, and 7-8 feet deep from the curb.  And there's no car in there, just snow.

Tomorrow, the back of the house.  Whee?
