The official evening WH front lawn measurements averaged out to 17.5". So insane for Fredericksburg. I wonder how long it will take them to plow our street... I'm so glad our major shoveling is over - I'm so sore! Still it was a good day. Made my first ever beef stew, watched Daddy lose his shoe in a snow bank (highlight of my day) and ended it all sewing silk taffeta, sipping champagne and eating See's candy (thanks to the perfect, though unknown, timing of my dear M!).
All in all it occurs to me that it's no bad thing to be snowed in. :>
