Thankfully, mom flew in from Moscow on Friday night. I had her spend the night with me so we could be snowed in together on Saturday. The snow started around 9pm Friday. When I woke up, it was crazy!

As of noon today we had 13 inches of snow. It is still snowing and the wind is blowing hard. We shoveled the driveway this morning, but you can’t even tell we were out there. Neighbors shoveled the sidewalk; you’d never know. We saw the mailman fishtailing around corners–with chains on his tires.

Here’s a montage of videos I took this morning.

And here are still photos from the shoveling expedition.
