Another Huge Snowstorm Hits DC

Official count at Casa Benjamin today: 23"

We lost power around 12:30 AM Saturday and it was restored at 5:00 AM. I got up to check on some things and the camera was handy so I got a few shots outdoors. Snow was still falling and it continued until late afternoon. I got outside and did a couple hours worth of shoveling before calling it a day. More shoveling looms on Sunday.

Back in December, we got hit with a similar 20" plus storm on a Saturday and we were off work on Monday. I'm expecting the same thing this Monday where we will be home.

I've lived in the DC area my whole life and never seen us hit with two snowstorms like this in one Winter.

I took some pics of the December 19, 2009 snow storm but didn't blog about it. One post I am still getting comments on is this February 1979 snow storm recap.
