The Blizzard of 2010.

That's right people, a BLIZZARD.

This is a record breaking snow storm for Maryland.
When this storm is over, this will be the #1 snowiest season in history

My power went out at 3 AM this morning and finally came back on around 1:30 this afternoon after making numerous phone calls. The temperature in my house dropped from 69 degrees to 57. It was freezing! My poor dog had to lay under the covers with me.

With the wind drift, we have about 26 inches of snow here right now. No one is going anywhere. We did shovel out our drive way so we could get to the Royal Farms store to get some food because we couldn't make any without having power. It's still snowing and won't end until 6 tonight. So we could end up with about 30 inches total.

Maryland is under a state of emergency. They had to bring in army vehicles to help transport people to hospitals and things like that. This is serious snow.

Here are some pics.
I'll take more tomorrow while I'm trying to dig out my car.

Snow on my deck

More snow on my deck

Look at the mail box! The snow is almost covering it.

Out my back window.
The smaller trees have disappeared under the snow.
The big trees are all wilted over.

The news is saying schools may be closed all week long and some businesses may not even open. Some people are still without power. Maryland is a mess right now. I can only pray spring is on it's way. But another storm is moving in on Tuesday bringing 6 more inches possibly.

I hope everyone is having a better Saturday then I am!
Stay warm Marylanders and others affected by this snow!
