Or something. Here are a handful of
pictures of Amanda, Andrew, and Snuggles enjoying the snow day!
The car got snowed in sometime on Tuesday afternoon. We didn't get
it out again until Friday...
The storm lasted for a little more than 3 days. It started with
2 confirmed tornados and a handful of reported funnel clouds on
the eastern plains of Colorado, the closest one about 15 miles from
Aurora. In the end, we had over 40 inches of snow. Some places in
the Front Range foothills had 9 to 11 feet! The National Weather
Service issued several Blizzard warnings, and wind gusts reportedly
reached well over 40MPH. Severe weather/winter storm warnings were
continuous. More snow (up to 1.5 feet) is predicted for the end
of this week.

to look around and see where she's going to go next... [original
These are two movies Amanda took with
her camera. They are in .AVI format, so they should play fine in
Windows Media Player or QuickTime Player.
car is nearly burried! By the end of the storm, snow was up
to the top of the roof on all sides. Snuggles could walk over
the hood! It looks a little cleaner than the other cars because
I had cleaned it off in the earlier hoping to get out of the
driveway. I didn't get very far... As you can see, the parking
lot is completely invisible. [original
