That's my brother-in-law. He got to celebrate his birthday by shoveling snow before it and after it, and by having to drive to Godard Space Center because he was essential personel for a satellite launching of some kind.
Here are some photos from my sister in Baltimore taken after the most recent snowful. Note that the snow is up to the windows and the house is up 7-8 steps from the driveway as well. It's so deep that my four year old niece and nephew can't/don't want to play in it because they get lost and can't walk. After all -- it's as deep as they are tall! The noreaster fizzled out before it got to our house near Providence, RI. We just have a few inches on the ground and the roads were clear almost immediately thanks to sunshine, above freezing temps and of course experienced road crews and the requisite equipment.
