These doors are almost completely covered
The garages across from my front door. That is my neighbors daughter crawling across the snow since she kept falling through up to her hip. I heard something scraping my front door so I opened it and she was digging us out. She is so nice. Thanks Blasi!
The snow was halfway up our door and Blasi dug us out. She said that she likes to do it. As you can see, our shovel is buried...
So school is canceled and we are pretty much stuck in our houses. As you can see it is pretty piled up. Yesterday it snowed about 12 inches or more yesterday (Lance says only 10) So it was pretty rough. It literally snowed all day.
Anyway, today it hasn't snowed BUT the winds are so strong and the snow drifts are large that they are telling people not to leave their houses! (and lance just came down stairs to ask if her could go get some pizza...) As you can see the snow drifts in front of our windows are about 4 feet up. Our neighbors is a little higher but it is right in front of their door, and a building down if you look really closely at the second picture all the way to the right, you can see that their front door is pretty much all the way covered.
While I was outside for 5 minutes, I was only able to take 5 pictures because the camera froze. It was crazy and VERY windy!
The joys of living in Iowa...
