Yesterday, I mentioned we had broken the second oldest record in history with this blizzard. Today, I can say we broke all records. The most snowfall previous to the past three days was 29+ inches set back in 1889. This blizzard brought in 36.2 inches of snow or 91.948 cm. In other words, we got a lot of snow. I checked closings this morning, and there's still a lot closed as the city slowly digs out. I just saw a city bus pass for the first time this morning, so those are back in operation. I've always wanted three feet of snow. Now, I got it. Yes, I'm happy, and will enjoy this until the temps warm and the snow melts and spring takes hold. When I was on Twitter yesterday for a minute, I saw one of our football players was calling this snowpocolypse. I'm sure it looked like that with the whiteout we got yesterday during the heaviest day of the storm. Yesterday alone we got 12 inches, which over three days averages out a foot a day. My notifications are done, and it's time for me to eat before I need to get ready to leave for the library while they plow the parking lot. The picture is one I took last night by the light of the street lamp with all lights off in the house of the snow and how beautiful it looked even at night. How is your day shaping up? Thanks for reading.

@just4him I"m afraid we didn't get as much as I thought. I saw and heard it falling in the early morning hours before I went to bed, but nothing seemed to be wet the next morning. The wind was blowing, and the plants I had hoped God would water looked stressed. The soil was loose and quite dry -- even in the pots.

Sunday night we had really bad storms here. I had power through it. Yesterday we had nice weather, but I didn't go out. I was frustrated because a movie I taped didn't tape all the way and my computer was acting up. Today it's a little cooler. I went to get the mail, but I had to go to mailbox twice to get my best friend's birthday card mailed. (her birthday is Sunday) Then I walked around the house with Lily and did some belly dancing. I hope to read some more of my book and color.

@just4him no. Direct TV has free previews (this weekend there is one of HBO and Cinemax) sometimes. This movie came on before the preview ran out, but ended after the preview ran out. So it didn't tape all the way. I thought it would stretch, but it didn't.
