When Chris and I were hurriedly packing at home on Friday afternoon, we decided we might as well bring a third "snow" bag. You know, just in case... We put a pair of snow pants, gloves, hats, Chris' winter jacket in it just in case we ended up needing them. You see, we were still a little skeptical that we would get this much snow!
We went out around noon today when there were only about 17 inches down to start shoveling and rescue the car before the snow plow came by so that hopefully we'll be able to drive to see my family later in the week.
Chris worked with his dad to do most of the hard labor shoveling the sidewalk/driveway and a path for the car on the street to make it to the driveway.
Afterwards we rewarded ourselves by going sledding - I'll try to post pictures of that soon! We haven't gotten snow like this since the Blizzard of '96 and I don't even remember the last time we had a white Christmas at home in VA.
Hope everyone made it to their destinations safely if you are traveling this weekend!
