20 Hours of Snowfall and…

…and… you get a whole ton of snow… duh! hehhee… 😉

But seriously we did have  20 hours of snowfall, by my own inaccurate calculations. You can go here for more accurate weather forecast/alerts/warnings.

It all started on Friday morning at about 9ish and simply carried on snowing to the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Here’s what it looked like as i was headed to bed at about 12.30am:

Here’s what it looked like at 8.30am this morning:

Top Left: Neighbour's car almost completely covered and boxed in by the snow. Top Right: Love how the snow covers the trees. Bottom: Bushes almost unseen now.

Husband and his colleagues were stuck at the hotel where they have their annual company Christmas dinner. He just could not drive the car out of the underground parking till the snow was cleared. So they waited till early morning.

Just to show you how much snow has indeed fallen (we estimate that at least 1.5 feet or about 50cm had fallen):

Left: See the caretaker with his snow-blower, standing in mid-thigh high snow. Right: See the amount of snow on top of the big metal trash bins?

i leave you with my favourite image from today – Snow caterpillars just outside our local Migros restaurant 😉

  1. This snow has been amazing! I had a harp workshop on Saturday and had planned to take the big harp but ended up taking the little one instead because of the snow.

    The steps in front of our building were buried and it didn’t register with me – too early! – and I just plopped straight down into the snow a distance of one or two steps.

    Lots of fun for the kids though! Great sledding.

    1. Oh dear… i hope u were not hurt… yes the snow is lovely but it can be dangerous too… my husband thinks we have not had so much snow at one go before… (in the years we have been here that is)…

  2. I was surprised but fortunately the snow was so thick it stabilized my foot so no harm done (thank goodness!). I agree, I’ve never seen so much at once since we’ve been here (haven’t asked the Husband about when he was a kid).
