I got over 12 inches last night

And let me just say, it's overrated. (Also, my back is killing me.)

That, btw, would be our deck. Or what you can still see of it. With all the drifting snow, I think we accumulated over 18 inches of snow out there in the last 24 hours, maybe more.

You guys knew I was talking about snow, right? ;-)

(Note: We shoveled our front walk and around the driveway, which took around 45 minutes, a little while ago. But we're going to let Mother Nature deal with the deck.)

Oh yeah, and the funny weather guy on NBC 4 this morning reported that they got "0 inches of snow in Ft. Lauderdale overnight." Hardee har har. :-(

OMG, check out this amazing time lapse video of the blizzard, which covers 20 hours in 40 seconds. (Nicely captured, Mike Black.)

Unbelievable! I know it's a drag to dig yourself out but you must be having a ball. Would kill to be in that kind of snow now for a major snowball fight, snowmen and making snow angels. We have arctic temps here in Paris but alas no fluffy white stuff!

@SugarDaze, maybe if we didn't have 50 mph winds blowing through (which knocked a chunk of siding off the house, outside our bedroom) and wind chill making it feel like 10 degrees Fahrenheit we'd be having a ball. (Or if J-THREE-O had a friend down the block.) But, for now at least, we're enjoying the fact we still have power and heat -- inside. :-)

Wow, quite a novelty for me since it doesn't snow in Auckland and we have Christmas in Summer.
