The blizzard started late Saturday night. The snow was really coming down, and by noon on Sunday there was at least a foot. ♥
Eric braved the storm so that I could come home for the holiday week -- he drives me halfway and then my parents (this time it was my sister) meet me and bring me the rest of the way home.
It was slow going at first, but we made it. In fact, the mess on the roads only added about 20 minutes to our trip (but it felt like an extra hour or two). The farther west we headed, the better the roads got. At the halfway point, there was no sign of a blizzard at all.
I took the pictures from the car.
Luckily, there was already some snow on the ground in North Adams, so I'll still have a white (with a few patches of grass) Christmas.
