Snow, Snow, and more SNOW!

This morning when we woke up, we awoke to a snow storm like we haven't had in a long time. Today we accumulated about 39" of snow!! That accumulation is only from 1 storm. It took us virtually all day, with a lunch break and a break before lunch, to clean it all up. We are VERY thankful that we have a snow blower, however the time and energy it took us was really unbelievable. We are hoping that just maybe we won't see anymore snow falling from the sky for a very long time!! Here are some pictures of the damage....
Before we started clearing the driveway was just filled!
The drift on our woodshed roof.This is what happened to poor Lacey who was the first one out this morning!
Chris holds a tape measure to record the amount.

A close up view. In this picture we have about 33 1/2", however it was still snowing hard and we ended up getting another 5-6" after clearing the first part. I didn't mention this before, but there were drifts over 3' tall!
Our handy helper!!
Well, I hope nobody else had to clear this much snow today!!!! In fact, probably most everybody hasn't accumulated this much snow ALL winter! Hopefully the weather will turn around soon.
Praying we will not get buried in :-) Love,
Jeff, Joan, Beth, Lindsey, Chris, Rebekah, Isaiah, Noelle, Hannah, and Timothy and Lacey too!
