The local CBS affiliate, WCAX-TV, announced on 2/15/2007 at 0600 that Jericho had received 30.6" of snow.

Some of the photos below were taken on 2/14 while most were taken on the morning of 2/15.

Our neighbor Charlie and his snow blower cleared our driveway twice on 2/14.

On 2/15 Charlie called at 8 AM to tell us his machine had mechanical problems and he didn't know when he'd get to us.

(The red seen in the left hand corner of some photos is my glove! It was -4o when I was out taking the pictures.)

There's a truck under there

My biggest concern is the snow on the roof

I haven't decided what to do about this yet!

Most reflective driveway markers were buried

It's pretty deep up there!

 

That's a Ryan wreath on the door!

It's 10 AM as I write this on 2/15. All of our schools are closed again. We don't know when our driveway will be cleared for the third and, hopefully, final time. Without that we can't get out because of the huge pile of snow across the bottom of the driveway. The driveway, already cleared twice, has about 14 inches of snow covering it now.
