The snow is starting to melt; at least on the roof. Clearly there is some ice in the gutter… A few more photos of life returning to normal in Robert’s section.

A little more snow…

Our next storm was last night and most of today. It pushed this winter into first place for snow in the DC area. A few more photos in Robert’s section.

The “hope to buy a snow shovel” line
last update: 02/09 @ 20:48
Our snow shovel is starting to show wear and tear after the last two big storms. In fact it has a screw loose — well, two actually. And one of those is lost in the snow. Fortunately, there was no run on sheet metal screws at the local hardware store. And they said they had a load of snow shovels due in around noon today. So I bought my screws and hung out until they announced the delivery wouldn’t show up for at least another hour. We’re on the “list” we’ll see how that goes. One of the replacement screws worked, so we don’t really need a new shovel, but I’d be happy to have a spare, just in case.

Update: they called at about 6:15 saying our shovel was in. Executive Lock and Key wins for forethought, follow through and customer service.

A Snowboarder is born

Robert showing off his new found form snowboarding on the grounds of Castle Roberto (the Masonic Memorial). We ended up with 17.8 official inches, making this the fourth largest snowstorm in DC history (and December’s was also in the top 10). More photos in Robert’s section.

Robert on the snow bank

We got another serious snow storm this weekend. It snowed from Friday afternoon, all night and it’s still going as it’s approaching 6pm Saturday. Unfortunately, this snow fall was much wetter and heavier than December’s big dump. We have several big branches down in the back yard, and I’m really impressed none of them took out the phone line (yet).

It’s starting to taper off now after an official 17 inches at National Airport — that makes it number five in all time snow fall here, if we get another two tenth’s of an inch there, it will be number four.

Snow again…
last update: 02/03 @ 10:33
I missed last weekend’s snow because of a nastly cold; I spent most of the weekend zoning out while Sarah and Robert went sledding and snow man building. Today I took a few hours to sled while Sarah gathered materials for a job interview tomorrow.

Go Sarah!!!
