It Snowed

Can you see our car? It's very nearly in the center of the photo.

So, it snowed. Started around 10am Friday, ended around 11am Saturday morning. Something like 24 inches on the ground, but really impossible to say with the huge drift enveloping the front half of our car. Here Sean is doing some good work.
The larger road down the street doesn't look so bad mid-afternoon Saturday. Driving ban still in effect but a few cars were venturing out.
Our street is currently significantly less passable. And our car is behind one of these giant snowpiles. By the way, shoveling snow onto a pile much higher than your own head is not easy.
Here it is.

So I haven't updated in a couple of months for obvious reasons if you've been keeping up with my life. And my updates will be sporadic at best for the next few months. But to tide you over, here's some silliness involving hair. I grew my hair out for 18 months and then cut it off and donated it. How much does 12 inches of hair weigh?

As it turns out, only 2 oz., if you're me. On the other hand, if you cut out all the hair (all mine) that wrapped around the roll bar of my vacuum cleaner, it really seems to be about the same or more. (Sadly, I forgot to weigh it before discarding.
