Go to sleep and dream of snow

Um. snow. All I can say is snow. Boy, am I ever glad to be inside, with my mom (and electricity!). I looked outside this morning and said, 'boy it doesn't look like it snowed that much.' Then we went outside. I think the Chicago Blizzard of 2011 is living up to the hype.
Are you ready for a tour of our extremely snowy neighborhood?

The gate to our alley (glad I emptied the garbage last night!):


Right outside my door, the snow is waist high:

The stairway down to the basement (oops. I guess I should have done my laundry before the storm):
Our sidewalk out front (plowed!):
That's our garbage woman, walking down the middle of my street with a snow shovel:
There's my car (or lack thereof):
Doesn't this picture almost look like it could be from a hundred years ago?
Standing in the middle of the main street near us:



Heading back inside...
Do you think my netflix will come today?

And back inside to shake off the snow and put the kettle on...
Is it snowing where you live? How are you staying warm?

WOW! That is a truly crazy amount of snow. Thanks for the tour! :) It snowed a little here this week, but only around five inches I think. We haven't a blizzard like yours since December! ;)

These are awesome! I love seeing the snow through your lens (better than in person!) and yes, the empty streets are timeless.

Wow that is a lots of SNOW! I came from a country with a proper winters but its usually the low temperature than snow which makes a wow-factor:) Although I do remeber winters when I went to school through the snow tunel:)
Now I live in England where in five years I've experienced more rain then in my entire life and almost no snow. Last winter I've prayed for some snow and when it finally arrived I was happy like a child, simply made me feel closer to home:)
