2010 Day After Christmas blizzard

Ipswich, Ma - The Day after Christmas we were hit with a blizzard.

We kept watching the sky like little kids. It was really gray out, and we waited most of the day before it started snowing.
The snow was powdery and fine. We had huge gusts of wind, too.

It snowed all afternoon and into the night. It was s
till snowing the next day. We didn't get as much snow as predicted. I think we were supposed to get 20 inches all told. We might have gotten 10 inches, but with the drifting it seemed like more.

All our windows were blasted with snow. I took a series
of photos looking out from inside, and from outside of the house, too. Some of the patterns were interesting, and I like the way the snow looks like a frame in some of the pics.

This was a picture I took looking out our front door right after the storm. The trees by the house were heavy with snow.

It took us four hours to shovel out, but my son did most of the shoveling. My house is on a corner so when the plows come by the driveway gets buried. It didn't seem too cold out even though it was 27 degrees and very windy.
