The Blizzard of 2010

We're nestled in the 12-18" range. Kelly's parents, in Eighty Four, PA, were right on the border of the 18-24" and 24"+ overlap in southwestern PA. They got it BAD.

February 5-6, 2010 Snowstorm

Well the Mid-Atlantic was walloped with an abnormally large snowstorm last night and today. In Sinking Spring, PA we received at least 15".

Me measuring the snow depth. As of 8 AM we had approximately 15 inches, and it snowed heavily for another 3 hrs. My estimation is about 16 or 17 inches when all is said and done. Not too shabby!

I had to go to work at the Shop this morning. Hey, Goodman Vending needs their stuff! It took me some time to shovel a path to get the Honda out of the garage.

Just 2 tire paths, that's all I need!

Of course I eventually got it done. But 15"+ of wet snow is rather heavy. It was quite the burden! Wish our "snow thrower" was graded for snows of 18" or more. Sadly it's only good up to 8"... and I'm not sure it could even handle that much!

I made it to the Shop and had to shovel there too.

I noticed that not much shoveling had been done by mi padre. Crap.

The snow looks really beautiful in it's pristine, untouched state. But, sadly, it must go for operations to run smoothly.

There was close to 14" on the ground at the Shop in West Lawn, PA. Looking good, dad!

After fulfilling my duties at the place of employment I headed home to clear out the rest of the driveway. Kelly's gonna have to get her car out for work Monday. More shoveling!

Kelly's car, covered. That's not good.

Kelly and I attacked the snow from all angles. Of course we had only 1 shovel so I think the snow made a valiant effort to slow down our process. I tackled the heaviest stuff until Kelly took over.

Well, that's a start.

Driveway done... at least for the Honda to get out of the garage. Time to attack the side where the Buick is.

Ahh... that's better!

All that's left is the pathway to the front porch. Take it away, Kelly.

Shoveling master.

With all of the hard work done it's time to relax. Hopefully sledding later!!!
