I lived in Alaska for seven years and never saw anything like this!  Hope you caught my post on the storm earlier this morning.  The snow just doesn’t stop.  They are saying it will keep going to 10pm and another 3.3″ for the Arlington area.  Here are some more photos to show the incredible snowfall.

The view from the front door of my townhome.  Yes, that is somebody’s car underneath all that snow!

I have a BBQ somewhere under that pile.

The wife already shoveled out the first 20 inches and you can see it is still piling up.

The news says that this is technically not a blizzard because the winds are only 32mph and need to be 35mph to count as a blizzard, but I think that most people would not care about that distinction!

I can’t imagine anyone even being able to get to the airport even if the planes were flying.

    You haven’t lived until you’ve been through a blizzard while living in the country. We had a bad blizzard in 1978 here in Ohio. I had snow drifts higher than the telephone poles. But I will admit to living in a township thanks knew how to get the roads cleared. The best way to do it is the biggest tractor ford made at the time ans an industrial sized snow blower. The blower cleared a lane and a half of road at a time. A day after the blizzard ended our roads were clear. But unfortunately, the state was not as efficient.

    Best piece of advice, stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary to allow road crews to work.
