More Boxing Day Blizzard Photos

Athena and I braved the frozen expanses of the outside world to photodocument the results of the blizzard earlier today. Come along and see it in all its frozen whiteitude in this Flickr set.
I just finished with the damned snow blower, and my neighbor has a friend come over with a plow blade on his pickup truck, and he manages to pile the snow from their driveway at the end of my driveway. I will NEVER run my snow blower on their freakin’ sidewalk again. They can stuff it.
Ooh! That’s nice!
Frozen Whiteitude is the name of my next band.
That drift on your roof is really amazing.
The snow falling off the roof is a great shot. Good thing you weren’t planning to go anywhere today, if that is an indication of the depth of snow. The couple of inches we got on Christmas Eve is less than we needed and more than I wanted. Not melting as fast as usual, since it has been bitterly cold the past couple of days.

That is a really cool snow drift coming off your roof.
These are hilarious. Love the boy band picture, and your house is amazing. Also the freaky snow wave thing on your house is just cool. Weird, but cool. I didn’t know that could happen!
Fortunately, I’m sure I-75 in W. Ohio will be well plowed by the time I have to drive home on Friday. :-)
I live in southern Texas (Houston) for a *very* good reason, and this is it!
Now there’s a pic link I’ll click through. Pose off? No freaking way.
Brain freeze Ha! I was wondering what was flapping in the wind on your roof. Some thing to keep ice out of the gutters? Snow drift? Really? That’s cool. I don’t have much experience with snow.
I’ll be honest John; lately you’re posts have left me cold.
Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all night, folks.
I am sitting here in Chicago, looking longingly at your pictures.We typically get a good storm in the week after Thanksgiving, but this year we’ve only had one day of (barely) measurable snowfall. Last week’s winter storm crapped out as it crossed the borders from Iowa and Wisconsin, so with this storm we are a sad little snow-less oasis.
Well John, thanks for sending us (here in NY state) your blizzard. It’s still snowing. Luckily for me, I had time to burn off so I don’t need to be at work for a few days.
The drift has some sort of Mobius Strip thing going on.
Aside from the wicked snow cornice coming off your roof that snowfall looks like a typical Canadian winter day around here. Enjoy the possibilites of hooking up your sled dog and going for a run!
