This is our daughter the HG’s house in town 40 miles away. That’s her husband shoveling. That wall of snow is probably about two feet high, maybe 3.
This is more impressive if you realize I took this picture at 1 in the afternoon and that normally you can see the highway quite easily from this spot. It’s somewhere off in the white horizon. There’s also usually a house and more trees to be seen, but it’s white out conditions off in the distance. The highway is also closed for all but emergency vehicles and has been since some time yesterday.
We’ve got plenty of food, water, and firewood, and if the power goes out we can always melt snow. But we also have the Dread Pirate Grasshopper and his family, and he and the Ladybug have ear aches, and we’re low on remedies for that. Ladybug will accept an onion poultice, but the DPG will not.
