Pictures From the October 29, 2011 Snowstorm
Greetings from a hilltop in Pennsylvania, now more closely resembling the Arctic circle! The major snow storm that has swept through the Northeast hit Eastern Pennsylvania pretty hard- there are downed trees everywhere and I consider myself extremely lucky to have electricity. I think Halloween may be effectively canceled in the Lehigh Valley, this year.
As of last measuring, the snow has reached 8" on level ground and over a foot in drifts. It is still snowing and should start to peter out at around 2 AM. Tomorrow I face the unenviable task of clearing my very long driveway of small trees and large branches on my own. Yay! In the mean time, here are some photos of my property as Mother Nature decides to kick start the holiday season. To anyone still in the storm: stay inside, stay warm, and stay safe!
Today was nice and sunny, so the snow receded quite a bit. I went out and about to see how the community fared and the roads are a mess. Just a few yards from my driveway there's a giant tree hanging over the road by some telephone wires. How do I still have electricity?
But, the worst is over and now it's time to clean up the mess left behind. Some photos from the day's work...including my dogs being cute. As far as they're concerned, snow days are the best thing ever.
Just a few more images taken of the damage. We are slowly cleaning up, but it seems that every tree has lost branches. What a headache, and winter's still on the way!
