Blizzard of January 2005

View from a second floor window

Wow. My family lived in Alaska when I was young, so I am no stranger to huge amounts of snow, but this blizzard has been an impressive amount of snow in a rather short time period. The NWS now says we're going to net about three feet of snow, but with drifts some spots are already well over that. Before the snow started yesterday afternoon, there was only a couple of inches on the ground. The wind was rather impressive as well. Last night, there were several occasions where you could hear the house shake as the wind blew. That's a little disturbing. The good news is no snow seemed to make it into the house.
