Default Blizzard 2016 Reston Virginia (12 miles from Washington DC)

I thought I’d start a little picture thread for the Washington DC Blizzard of 2016
I'll add more pictures over the next few days
Note that I'm in the nice warm house while I'm taking these


The snow began in Reston, VA at 1PM on Friday 1/22/16 and by 8PM we had 5 inches of snow.

This is what it looks like the morning of Saturday, 1/23
Poor little Kylie couldn’t go outside earlier because the snow was over his head.


Ted has now shoveled a path for him out in the backyard.

This picture is looking out the Master Bedroom window into the neighbor’s backyard
You can get an idea of the amount of snow by looking at their patio table


Ted trying to clear a path out to the common sidewalk.
The winds are really high right now and it’s still snowing
This weather pattern is predicted to continue through early evening


Looking out my bedroom window at my car
Happily, I don't need to go anywhere in the coming week

Oh my goodness!
I have a friend in the states who has lots of snow where she is (Madison) and I am always so happy we usually avoid a lot of snow here in the UK. I hope you all stay safe, warm and as much as possible can stay inside, all toasty and warm!

Jo Ann,

It's so funny you said that. Back when I was still working, it snowed a good bit one day so two of my friends and I took the afternoon off to go play in the snow on the golf-course behind my house. We had a tube, a saucer and a toboggan.

As the day progressed and we got sillier and sillier, we started taking turns trying to go down the hill on the toboggan standing
up. We were laughingly calling it Olympic Extreme Tobogganing. And..... I won!!

Of course, that was several years ago and I'm sure I could not manage to do something like that now.

I woke this morning to see on the news you had a blizzard in the Washington DC area. And New York that wasn't supposed to get it did and has pretty much shut down the city. Waiting for the next news report to see it in full.

As the pictures show you certainly have had some snow. That must be nearly 2 feet deep if not that and more. Poor Kylie, did he have to cross his legs while waiting to go out for a potty break.

Wow...that is almost nauseating to look at. I am glad I don't live anywhere near this storm's path. Reminds me of my area two winter's ago, I send my sympathy to you and all the folk's affected by this...
