    PRC where else am i suppose to put my car? Im a renter. On top of that i worked last night and when i got off there was already 5-6 inches in the road and i couldnt even turn around. I basically got stuck there and just parked it. I now have it un barried but the plow still hasnt come through...Ill get out later and take some more pix before the sun goes down. This is crazy. Pretty sure Racine and Kenosha businesses are all shut down.

    Uh...not every house. No. The house i live in has a small slab that the landlord parks on. Pretty sure its not constituted as a driveway persay because its the size of one car.

    We wouldn't be able to park our cars anywhere else either. My Jeep is in the garage, his car is behind the garage, no driveway here either, the truck has to be on the street. Makes it bad, as soon as you get dug out, here comes the plow truck again .... lol Last year, they went down the alley and plowed his car in. I couldn't imagine getting that much snow.

    Yes, there are. There's about 5 or 6 Koi and some goldfish. There's a bubbler in there and the hole in the ice is about 2ft by 2 ft. The deepest end is 4ft deep. They're all alive *crosses fingers* I hope!

    In the town where I'm from, in the city limits, they sent out fliers and called people telling them that they weren't allowed to park in the street for the next 48hrs or so...they were going to tow vehicles if they were in the street, at owners expense. I saw about 20 of them in the impound lot!

    Here are some pics of Bryce. We busted up the ice on the patio and made a wall for a fort for him.

    This is during the Thundersnow, looking out the door! Thats all we could see!!!

    [​IMG]

    Outside my window this morning!

    [​IMG]

    The building behind mine, I had to go out the back door because the front door was burried in a four and a half foot deep snow drift! The back door had about two feet of snow that I had to shove aside with the door to take Bella out! You can kinda see a door on the building!

    [​IMG]

    They finally shoveled the walk way in the front at 4:00 pm!

    [​IMG]

    Needless to say we have another snow day tomorrow!!! I am not sure how I am getting my car out though!
