ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS 9 MORE INCHES!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Two weeks ago I blogged that we had set an all time snowfall record for a year, EVER! Well it just keeps coming. I had really hoped to post several blogs about our community over the Holidays but frankly I've been doing a lot of bonding with my snow thrower. As you can see from the pictures above I've got plenty to do in my yard.. BUT what you don't see is that I also run over to my mother-in-laws and do hers and then I have a listing (or two) by elderly clients that I head over to and do theirs as well. In the summer I often mow the lawns (also at no charge) for my elderly clients).

The snow has been so heavy and frequent that yesterday the Minot Super Walmart closed (and still is) until they clear the roof of snow. Many business here are in fear of failing roofs as the weight of 5 feet of snow tests their strength. We have yet another storm warning for tomorrow.

There is still some fun to be had for those brave enough to venture out into this mess. Here is a picture of the snow tunnel/fort Tina (8) and I made yesterday when the temp jumped up to 28 degrees above zero.

In case you were thinking that I was joking about the temperature, guess again. We have had several weeks of subzero temperatures and last nights storm brought the subzero temps back again.

That's way too cold for me, but the pictures look like fun.

Wow that is a lot of snow!  Here is the Philadelphia area, we have not seen much at all.  Just a dusting.

We have had three larger storms, but nothing close to that... up in RI... From the title, I was a bit concerned as to the propriety of this post... but hey, snow is snow...

Carol, it is a record for here but when I lived in the Red River Valley (Fargo ND) i remember drifts that actually went over our split-level home. The City of Minot has declared a "Snow Emergency" and it is now illegal to park in the streets of Minot as the plows have not been able to navigate through the parked and stalled cars. You may notice on the picture of the front of my home I actually snow-blow the street because I know the plow will put all that snow in my driveway if I don't remove it.

Wow I just blogged about our western PA snow fall but you certainly have one over on us.  Our snow fall was so pretty but certainly not threatening as to have roof collapses. Hope you all remain safe

Bob - reminds me of some winters in Buffalo when I was a kid. It is good what you do for some of your clients.

Mike,

I've often wondered how Buffalo and cities where you hear about "lake effect snows deal with total accumulations. My sister writes about snows in the Denver area but then she almost always brags about it being in the 50's the next day.
