Blizzard Of '13: Live Coverage!

I put this Peter Good calendar container on the outside table at 1:00 this afternoon. It stands 8 inches tall:

By 5:00 maybe 2 inches had fallen:

Then it started coming down. 6:30:



1:00 a.m.:

So we're up to a little more than a foot of snow, with a half a day left of snow to come, supposedly.

The crazy thing about this storm is that I can't see out the windows. The snow has stuck to all the screens. Not on one side of the house, on all sides. Here's the front door with its glass panels:

And here's how bright it is outside that door at 2:00 a.m., with the stairs completely gone (and I shoveled them after about 6 inches):

There's a road and a driveway under here somewhere. Those bumps are the tops of the previously plowed snow-piles, almost fully covered by what fell since. You can see the snow sticking to the side of the house, too:

We were supposed to get 18 inches but instead got only 6....there are some very disappointed little boys in my house today. However, my oldest son is at Brookhaven on Long Island and they got 17 inches, and his girlfriend in Falmouth got tons of snow and they have no power. You never know...
Have fun shoveling/sliding.
