Winter Storm

The Cincinnati area turned into a winter wonderland in the past 30 hours. We have had 10+ inches since the storm started yesterday. Both of us came home from work yesterday at lunch time. It was a good thing as the there were only a couple inches of snow on the ground then, but the roads were starting to get slippery. The snow just kept coming and the wind picked up last night so we had some drifting too. We woke up this morning to at least 10 inches and it is still coming down. It’s going to take awhile to get all the roads plowed. In the meantime, we’re enjoying the white blanket that we got.

Here is Dianne shoveling out around our cars.

Our neighbor’s steps don’t even look like steps anymore – just a ramp of snow.

Another couple in our neighborhood was out for their usual morning walk, even though the snow was still coming down. You can see some of the snow blowing off the roof of the garage.

The ruler on my car shows 8 inches of snow after I got home! You have to look at the large version on Flickr to read the ruler.

8+ Inches

Finally, I saw this robin sitting in a tree when I was walking around taking pictures during the storm. It’s either a mixed up robin or a sign that even though we got hit hard, Spring is right around the corner.
