Snowpocalypse, the Day After

I awoke to an incredibly snowy wonderland this morning. When I walked downstairs, my first sight was the back deck, now suitable for lounging snowmen.
The National Weather Service is reporting regional snow totals which range from 16 to 22 inches in my corner of New Jersey.  Clearly, we're somewhere in that range.  It's hard to say for sure because the wind has re-arranged things; my backyard has drifts of up to three feet.  The sun is now shining and the winds are beginning to decrease.  The neighbors are firing up their snow blowers.  I intend to fortify with coffee and breakfast and join the parade soon enough.  But it will be a chore to even get out the front door to locate my shovel, so there's no hurry on my end.
Oh my!

We had that mess here last Christmas. Glad you got it this year so I wasn't snowed in at my mother in law's again.
