The Blizzard of 2017

Daddy is the bravest! daddy is good! daddy is brave!

That is what I heard coming from the sliding door to the deck as I shoveled through 30 inches of snow during the blizzard of 2017. While I of course don’t think of myself as brave for shoveling and snow blowing in the storm, it makes me realize just how much I love my daughters.

In total we probably got about 26 inches of snow in open areas and 30+ inches of snow where it drifted since the winds were blowing at about 30 mph. In the years that we have lived in this area this is by far the larges snow total I have seen in a single storm. I went out twice today to snow blow, shovel and clear of the cars which pretty much took care of the bulk of the snow. The work in the morning will be just light clean up work from the other inch or so we will get before midnight.

For all of the rest of you in this storm’s path, Please stay safe and stay of the road if you can at least through the day tomorrow. And of course, take your kids outside to play in all of this snow!
