Blizzard of 2010!

It’s Day 4 of being snowed in from the “Blizzard of 2010”!  Our street still hasn’t been plowed and our car is still buried in the snow:

We’ve been outside a few times — G to shovel, N to play and me to take pictures:

G and I took a walk this morning and passed the charred remains of a car in the middle of the street.  It was abandoned during Sunday’s storm and left to burn, as no fire trucks could get to it:

It has been quite spooky walking the streets in the weird snowscape, and our house and yard seem unfamiliar:

But I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying myself.  I’m on vacation from work this week anyway, so I don’t have anywhere to go or anything I must do.  In fact, the snowstorm and its aftereffects kept me at home when otherwise I would have been dragging N around town running errands.  Instead, our family has been able to stay indoors and enjoy lots of quality time together.  So I’m actually thankful for this force of nature which made us stop and take it easy for a few days!
