Blizzard of '11

The blizzard seems to be over for just about everyone, now. The official snow amount here varies from 8.6 to 12 inches, depending on your specific area ... it looks to me like we were closer to the high number here in Albion.  We're looking at sub-zero low temperatures and highs in the teens the next couple of days, followed by a bit more snow over the weekend.

My soon-to-be son-in-law saved my life. Well, at least my back, and possibly my life: Vinny and Charis brought over their snow blower and did most of the work to clear my driveway and sidewalk yesterday. As it went through, you could see the layers: snow, sleet, snow, sleet. It was a very heavy, wet snow, and my back is still a bit sore from the last snowfall -- I really don't think I could have gotten it all done without their help.  Yay for 25 year old Montgomery Ward gas snow blowers!

Emily is keeping her new antibiotics down okay -- but now, it seems, we've both caught a cold.
