Blizzard 2009, Storm of the Decade

Starting on Friday, around 3:00 pm in the afternoon, a tempestuous snow storm rolled in and has since then blanketed much of the eastern US.  While this may not be the storm of the century, it is certainly the storm of the decade.  Meteorologists have been comparing the storm to the blizzard of 1996.  In some parts of the nation, single day snowfall records were set.  Areas like Philadelphia experienced the second-heaviest snowfall on record with 23 inches.  The DC metro area reported its largest snowfall since 1885!  In Fayetteville we experienced knee-high deep snow, and the Beckley Airport reported a snow depth of 21 inches from the storm.  To see look at some interesting stats, click on the title for a link to Wikipedia "North American Blizzard of 2009."



Snowed in!

I hope this wasn't a sign of how the day would turn out...

These are GREAT. I love the eggs, especially.

I laughed pretty hard when that egg face came out!
