~ Snowmageddon 2010 Begins ~

People have been scared about this snow storm since Wednesday! Yesterday, people were rushing to the grocery store to get supplies. I have never seen the grocery store parking lots this full before. I woke up this morning to...nothing. I think around 12, it started snowing, but it was a light dust. It was dense, but the flakes were small. Nothing stuck. But, the snow flakes slowly and steadily gained volume and by around 3:30, it was starting to stick.

So, what to do on a snowy day? Take pictures of course! I forgot that I had a 50-200mm lens so I took that out for some fun.

I stayed inside the house and just zoomed in on everything! I really like this picture for some reason. This is a bike in my yard.

My poor jasmine plant....

Of course, Momo is having blast!!

By the time I uploaded the pictures to Facebook, another inch has fallen! So, I took more pictures :) It's incredible how the snow can stick and accumulate on such thin branches!

Look at how fast the snow is falling!

I think my jasmine plant's body is gonna fall over soon.

My neighbor used to have a little tent on their deck. During the last snow storm, the accumulated snow made it collapse and now it's just a skeleton in the yard.

I think these little plants are gonna collapse soon too!

Ok, the top picture was taken around 3:30pm. The next one was taken around 5 something.

Look at the difference after just one hour!

I think it's about an inch per hour. I am kinda excited. I like storms :) ABC news said it'll be about 28 inches this weekend! I hope everything will be ok by Wednesday so I can leave though. My dad's flight on Sunday was canceled this morning. I can't believe they canceled Sunday flights already!

I am feeling so lazy now. Just want to hide under the blanket and read New Moon. Oh yeah, finished Twilight last night (or should I say this morning). It was pretty exciting! I will definitely be taking more pictures tomorrow. Hope you are nice and warm inside with lots of food if you are in the area!

I can't believe you forgot you have a 50-200mm lens! We have about 3 inches here in Lancaster, PA and I'm hoping to go out tomorrow and take some photos. Yours are wonderful!

I live here in the DMV too and I am amazed at the beauty that surrounds me. Your photos have come out so nice. You have inspired me to take a few of my own.
