Snowfall began early in the afternoon of Saturday January 22, and it continued to snow heavily through most of the weekend, with hurricane-force gusts of wind.

I first noticed the icicle hanging from our neighbor’s eaves early Sunday morning.
This shot was taken shortly after we put up insulating film on the kitchen windows. By the way, that stuff rocks!

Our driveway. Car? What car?
(At this writing — nearly a week later — our upstairs neighbors’ car (pictured) looks almost exactly the same.)

To make a start, you have to shovel out the shovel.

And what’s that in the background? Right, more situation-magnitude-nongraspage.
(Actually, one or some of these futility-fighters ran a blower up and down the
sidewalk on the whole block, for which the whole block is heartily grateful. No disrespect intended.)
