Storm of a Century? Hunkering down in Flagstaff!

Flagstaff AZ, January 2010: The predicitons have been dire. Up to 7 feet of snow in a week. Huh? Is this Alaska? Wisconsin? North Dakota? January 18, we got a few inches..... my deck is a great place to gauge the snow. Watch the wind chime.... January 19: A bit more. And this morning, January 21: Where is the wind chime? By the way, the gap between deck rail and roof line is over 24". The front of my house about noon today, after I shoveled the walk:
The drift at the end of the driveway, and no, that's not a child size snow shovel!
The neighbor's house
Trees behind the house:
And the other view of the back, yes, its still snowing!
Luckily, my condo area has snow removal. The guys have done a much better job this year than last. but I have no idea how they will keep up if the snow continues until Saturday AM! The city is pretty much shut down. But I have power, water, my sewing machine, lots of food, wine...... It's hunker down time.
Campus is closed, no work for us! Time to get going on those quilts and enjoy it. Well, sort of.....

It's 74 here and dry. Which means we went to see the grandtwins for the weekend. Enjoy!
