In Cincinnati we used to giggle whenever there was a snow warning. A snow warning is basically the possibility of A Flake. Everyone would panic, drive to Kroger, be unable to park in the lanes, and strip the shelves of bread, milk, toilet paper and beer. We called it The White Death.

Um.

Welcome to New England…

The snow on the car is just last night’s fall. The cars and the drive had been scraped and shoveled, respectively, yesterday. The depth of the yard snow is a little over my knees. I trudged around until I could no longer feel my toes. I don’t have winter boots, just leather walking shoes. These were taken with my smart phone. With the glare it was really hard to see what I was shooting, so most of the shots were out of focus. I still haven’t gotten the hang of the camera phone.

  1. I feel for you guys. I have family in New Hampshire, and the endless snow is making them stir crazy. I suppose it’s great for the skiers, but for the rest of us, not so fun. We’ve had a lot around Cleveland, too, but a lot of it’s melting today. Good riddance, I say to it.

        1. The whole time I lived in Cincinnati I kept wondering why someone from Cinci didn’t drive up to Cleveland and ask, “What do you guys do with this white stuff? We panic and throw salt on it.” 😀

  2. great pictures – New England is definitely well ahead of my part of NY this year, but I’m tired of white stuff already. For weather sites, I use the NWS (weather.gov) – of the most part their pretty accurate (at least here) & they usually have a link to local snowfall totals after a storm.

  3. Love the pictures!

    We’re like that in SC–if the weatherman so much as hints at snow, everyone goes to Walmart and wipes the bread and milk shelves clean. And the thing of it is, if we do get snow, it’s on the ground for one day, two tops, before the roads are clear.

    1. Cincinnati is weird. It isn’t really north, like Cleveland, where they get pounded by snow. It isn’t really south. So they do get snow fall, a few inches a year. But each year it was like this totally new experience for them! It was humorous, even to the locals.

    1. Since I don’t have to drive in it to go to work, I’m still new enough to it that I like it. The last time I was in snow country like this I was in 7th grade, living on the shore of Lake Michigan in western Michigan. We got a lot of snow then, so it isn’t totally new. But it has been many a long year since I was in 7th grade!

  4. Hehehe 😀 Dontyaloveit!! I waded (literally like wading into the ocean waves) through the snow in my front yard up to my waist (and I’m sure my boots were not planted on the ‘ground’, but more likely about 6 or more inches of hard pack)…not kidding, so I could place the ladder against the roof and climb (funny how it doesn’t LOOK that high from the ground!) up to shovel the two feet, or more, of snow off there. (I didn’t do the whole roof, just the middle part). I didn’t to do any phonography *afraid if I dropped it, I wouldn’t find it until May* Happy Winter in NH!

    1. I don’t even want to think about shoveling a roof, not even if both of my knees worked and I was 20 years younger and a ton lighter. Nope, not gonna even imagine it. Yeah, I think the “up past my knees” was not shoes on the ground either, like you I think it was on about 6 inches of pack.
