Blizzard '09

Just in time for the holidays... the first Blizzard of the winter season!

We had about 2 feet of snow on the Cape, starting last night around 10 p.m. It's still snowing now. We took the dogs to the beach to check it out around 2 p.m. this afternoon.

You can see that where the paths weren't shoveled at all, you can see the snow drifts were up to my knees - and up to the dog's belly!
The tide seemed exceptionally high, and it had washed sand over a bunch of the snow, turning the exposed sand into a kind of quick sand. The dogs sank in up past their knees, but fortunately didn't get stuck. The water came in over the tops of our boots. Thank goodness for wool socks!
