We are in the midst of a major winter storm today. It's been complete white out conditions. There is a blizzard warning until 7:00 tonight. When I left work at 2:30 last night the wet snow was just starting. When I woke up at 5:45 this morning it was a full fledged storm including lightening. I went back to sleep until around 8:00 when Jordan woke me back up. Now it's 11:00 and the snow is so deep and the wind blowing so bad it is awful. I can't even see out my windows. The snow has blown all against them and stuck. They have the news interrupting all the local programing right now and the news anchors are saying this is the worst they've seen it in a very long time.
I took a few pictures when I took the dogs out a little bit ago.
This is a view of my back porch.
A view of my scrapbook room window. I tried knocking the snow off the screens so I could watch the birds who are desperately trying to eat.
My driveway with my car nearly buried. You can see the snow drift next to it
I had to push my front door open to get this picture. You can see Lucy sticking her nose out into it on the left side of the picture. :)

I called into work and they are excusing absences for today, thank goodness because I'm out of personal days until this summer. Jim left for work an hour early this morning just to make sure he got there (it normally only takes him 15 minutes to get there). He may have to work a double shift if the relief crew doesn't get in this afternoon. He told my just to stay inside for today. I guess since I'm not going anywhere today that means I better get my house cleaned up. :)
