This was at around 11:30 am. (Notice the flower pot to the left of the sidewalk)
This is how hard it's been blowing...the snow was piled up clear to the front door! It never gets more than a foot, at the most, onto the porch. (this was around 4pm)
This is around 5pm.
See the lump? That's the flower pot in the first picture.
Here's a video...I thought maybe you'd be able to see how hard it was snowing and blowing but I don't think it worked. And while I cracked open the door, Jacob tried to sneak out! He's been desperate all day to get outside!!
