This was the view outside my window at about 9:20 this morning. I think I’m going to send it to Charles Osgood and ask him to use it as the last minute of this week’s CBS Sunday Morning.

The snow has since stopped, so now we’re going out to shovel.

Update, 1:50 p.m. Here are our first few steps out the back door:

Like Amy‘s Royal Mail coat? Sure, all the trendy Dutch were wearing them last year, but Amy got hers the year before that at American Science & Surplus.

Here’s the snow in front of our house:

I measured 10, 12, and 13 inches since last night in three different spots on our front walk. Our forecast calls for more snow tomorrow, Sunday, and Tuesday.

Plus, there’s also a Wind Chill Advisory which anticipates wind chill values of 20 to 34 degrees below zero from Saturday night through Monday morning.
