My uncle, Stanley "Tat" Thompson had a great phrase for the blizzard that was projected this past Friday-Sunday -- "The forecast is clear and still, snow clear up to your a$$ and still coming!"
Ashburn was absolutely hammered by the blizzard of 2016. We got over 38" of snow. The BIGGEST blizzard I have ever been in.
Above is me leaving the garage for the FIRST time on Saturday, we still at another foot of snow to come.
Above is me clearing a part of the backyard for the dogs to take care of business.
Above is a photo of a yardstick at 8pm on Saturday night and it kept snowing for another 4 hours.
Above is a photo of the backyard Saturday night January 23rd. That is a 6' fence.
Above are Photon and Nero running around in the area I cleared.
Above is my office. The snow is over 4' high on the screened in porch that is outside my office. The window sill is about a foot above the height of the porch roof.
Above is Julie in the front yard and in the back yard after a day of some compaction and melting on Sunday the 24th.
Above and below is Waxpool Road.
I am not sure if I will ever be in a location where one blizzard dumps more than 38" like the Blizzard of 2016!
