Yup, it’s winter all right

Here in the Philadelphia area, we didn’t get the blizzard that the media had predicted. The day after Christmas did bring us some snow, though. There’s enough to cover the ground, but gusting winds have pushed it all over place, making it hard to determine the total accumulation. In some spots of my yard, the drifts are half a foot deep; in others, the grass is peeking through.

The buildup to this storm was huge: in short, pretty much everyone was panicking. At the beginning of 2010, we had Snowmaggedon and the Snowpocalypse, so people are calling this one Snowprahwinfrey2010 (on Twitter, at least), which I find hilarious.

    Glad you didn’t get the worst of it (unless you like snowstorms?)! It rained for seven days here and people freaked out; many aren’t looking forward to the ONE day of rain forecasted for tomorrow! Stay warm with tea and cocoa!

    Seven days of rain IS pretty epic! Hope you are keeping dry!

    Heh, our blizzard got nicknamed “Snowmageddon” and “Snowmygod”.

    @Chris: I hadn’t heard “Snowmygod” before. That is awesome!
