The snow totals range between 19-25 inches depending where you measure. All I can say is...we made it! It was beautiful, fun, but very, very cold! Everyone in the neighborhood came out of their houses to stay warm. They came and they shoveled. We shoveled so much that we shoveled the entire street! We stayed warm. People had outdoor hats, gloves and coats and indoor hats, gloves and coats (the difference being one set was wet and one dry!) It has been a very memorable time. It was really great to get to hang out with my neighbors.
Good news! The electricity just came back, yay!!!!! We will all get together tonight and celebrate. Tomorrow I will be out of survival mode and back into painting mode. (More snow is on the way Tuesday night...this is VERY unlike the DC area! Hope the heat stays on!)
