snowed in

This storm has been a doozy. It makes the infamous Blizzard of 2010 look like a newborn kitten.

{side note: Speaking of that infamous Blizzard, last week we had a private meet and greet with the primary weather man from a local news station, courtesy of our friend's other concert guests. I may have accidentally brought up the Blizzard of 2010.  He couldn't believe I dare bring up the "B" word. Oopsy. Slowly put your hands up and back away. BACK AWAY. Note to self, when making casual conversation with a weather man, discussing the weather is not a safe topic. neither is discussing possibley incorrect forecasting.}

Anyway, back to the point of this post.  In the last day and a half it's dropped over 2 1/2 feet of snow.  That's a whole lotta precipitation folks.

To show you what snow measured in feet looks like, I went on a little snow tour during Reese's nap to shoot some pics. Your welcome. And keep in mind it has snowed even more since these have been taken.

First up, our local National Forest sign:

Not too bad right?

Next we'll play Where's Waldo. Errr, Where's the Snowmobile may be more fitting:

That's a fun game. Let's play again. This time, we're looking for my white Honda Civic. Look closely. Hint: you may be able to pick out the sideview mirror:

Yeah. That might be a problem.

Despite the inconveniences the snow may bring, it's worth every last shovel of snow to look out my horizon and see this.

Simply stunning. Winter wonderland, indeed.
