Significant Snow Event – 2009

One of the news anchors today said that there isn’t much difference between one foot and two feet of snow — Deep snow is just that, Deep!
So that’s what we got — Deep Snow!  Almost 20 inches on the porch.  We keep opening the front door to keep it from freezing shut and M & K have shoveled, broomed, scraped and REPEAT!  The weatherman on channel 9 (USA-TV/CBS) just did his mathematics — although it varies between wet vs dry snow – here is the weight that has been/is being shoveled:  1 Square Foot = .5 pounds, a ‘typical’ driveway = 45′ x 10′ with 2" of snow = moving 468 pounds, Times 10 if snow is 20" = 4,680 pounds – Over 2 TONS!  So, this is a good reason to do a little, rest a little – no reason to overdo!

Front Porch – There really IS a planter there!
