* in the Mid-Atlantic region, since they've started recording it.
At our house, last weekend we got 30 inches of snow. By Tuesday, we finally had it shoveled out of our driveway. Our neighbors, who had someone come with a truck to clear their driveway, got their drives cleared by Tuesday morning, a couple of hours before us.
About an hour after the last of the shoveling was done here, the snow started for our current storm. At that time, it was predicted for 10-20 inches, now they are saying 6-12 inches. However, the big thing is the WIND. It's a Nor'easter, with 40 mph winds and gusts above that. we're seeing wind right now, but it's gonna get worse. this morning it looked like about 5 inches of new snow, but really, the drifting and tree breakage is the big concern, and we are likely to lose power, along with everyone else.
Our kids have been out of school since Friday, and at least through the end of this week. Consequently, they have been using my computer more than I have.
However, I did enter a couple of origami designs in the Woot derby, and it was the second of those that inspired the one that I'm showing here.
