Snowpocalypse 2011!!!

We're in the throes of 12-18 inches of snow. It started falling somewhere after I went to bed at midnight. When I woke up at 6am, there was a good deal of snow already on the ground, maybe 8 inches.

All told, I'm wondering if we'll lose power with this one.

It is now (at almost 8am) nearly light enough out for me to think it'd be fun to go out and take some pictures. The wind is starting to pick up a little bit, and the trees and bushes are heavily laden. Power lines will surely be kissed or hit by something.

A full report will follow later today, I'm sure. In the meantime, I've enjoyed a very quiet two hours of peace here. Watching the morning news, surrounded by snoring dogs (they played like houses afire out in the snow earlier...) and it's just nice to enjoy the silence.
