The past two winters were so mild as to almost be laughable,
so we were due.
In Baltimore the snow started Friday evening.
When i woke up Saturday morning it already looked like this.
I love having a sunroom;
you can be outside without really being outside.
I went out for the first time Saturday around 8:30 am to survey the scene.
6 inches over night
After digging out and clearing off my car i went back inside to settle in for a long day of reading and watching DVDs on the couch, with the Christmas tree lights on and the shades up so that i could watch the snow blanketing my house.
lounging about really takes it out of ya- i went outside around 3:30pm.
12.5 inches in the front yard
I dug out and cleaned off my car yet again even though the snow was still steadily coming down; i figured i would rather do it several times than tackle the forecasted 2 feet all at once on Sunday.
Before going inside i jumped backwards into the snow to make a snow angel
basically surrounding myself in snow.
It was beautiful and crisp, but mayhaps i should consider buying some snowpants before rolling around in it again.
It snowed for about 24 hours straight; never really heavy, but constant.
Final reports differ around the city, but in my yard the snowfall ranged between 14 and 17 inches.
