As the storm began, this little guy was making sure his collection of bounty was squared away.
The cats didn't last long outside.
This was TRAGIC! I forgot to stock up on coffee prior to the storm! The only caffeine I could find was this swill!
The Fence line.
At the beginning of the storm. Lots of wind!
The day after... Lots of drifts and overhangs like this.
Actually managed to shovel my walk (and that's about all) here the snow accumulated to roughly 19 inches.
More of the fence line.
Everything looked as though it had been produced by the Sta-puff corporation.
Notice the accumulation on the South side (lft) of the apex vs the North side (rt). Wind was out of the North.
Really, there are chairs under there.

Scrunch investigating the frozen Juniper bush.
Cleared the walk next to the car port. There's a GMC Envoy under the snow bank on the left in this image.
Down the alley...
Middle of the storm.
I'm putting odds on a White Christmas...
Really they wanted to go out!
Snow down the alley behind my house.
This snow was a bit wetter, aka stickier, as illustrated by the snow on the north facing side of this telephone pole.

What I wanted the snow to do... Stop!
Color contrast photo.
Every car on the block looked like this.
Color stood out.
This was the "Guard Dog" at the local used car lot. I played fetch with her for about 10 minutes, she was a sweetheart!
Me just trying to be creative. The car's actual color was putrid brown, I was playing around with Photoshop to see what I could do for color improvement.
Again, interested in the color... but the snow accumulation over the top of the sign was also interesting to me.
I saw this opportunity, and thought I'd try to see if I could frame a good Moon shot. I also wanted to see the resulting focal ability of the 12x optical zoom of my new Cannon S3IS.
Another Moon Shot.
Out my dirty window.
