The 2011-02-01 Blizzard shut down the state of Missouri and affected all of the Midwest!
Granby, in the southwest corner of Missouri, only averages 10-12 inches of snow annually. We get several snow storms from one half inch to 2 inches during the winter and occasionally maybe a "big snow" of 6 inches. And they don't usually hang around for very long, disappearing after a few days.
This storm dropped 17 inches on us. And it drifted up to 48 inches on our property! Then the snow lingered for nearly two weeks! (In the 8 winters we have lived here, I have seen a grader plow our road one other time!) And my neighbor graciously plowed our driveway with his tractor!
For reference, the porch is 22 inches higher than the driveway.

WOW! I am flattered and honored, mariolyn! Thank you so much for the compliment!

mariolyn

Jim, I have spent the evening doing your puzzles - 90 of them!
You do great photography. Thanks very much.

You gave me a fright - I thought this had happened overnight!

laurajane

Look on the bright side. At least it left you a little walkway along the side of the house, with less to shovel.

Oh Jim, did you have to remind me? LOL

Mentally prepping yourself for what's coming this winter?

That must have been quite an experience for the folks in your neck of the woods. That's a lot of snow to have dumped on you!!

Jan, I don't recall that we lost power in that storm but I checked my records and it got down to -8F on February 3rd. It hasn't dropped below zero around here but a few times since we moved here.

What a storm! My back aches thinking of the shoveling. Did the power go, too? Hope this doesn't happen again!!!

I remember this very well. I live in the middle of the state and we got over 20 inches of snow. It was a storm to remember, for sure.

That is a big drift .... Just think it gave you and Susan some snuggling time...
