Tired of snowstorms

I just want you to know that I am tired of snowstorms. There have been a ridiculous number this year, and the accumulation is way out of control. I took these pictures this morning. This first one is of our backyard play structure. Playset This is at a different angle and includes a better view of the fence. Fence in backyard I'll admit that the snow can be pretty on the trees. It's just that my back is starting to hurt just thinking about shoveling. Backyard The deck was shoveled as of two days ago. So all that is on there is fresh accumulation. This is the fourth time (I think) this season. Deck Here is a view of the sad trees in my front yard. Yes, that's my front yard. Front yard I went upstairs and got an alternate view of the play structure. This one includes iccicles! Backyard from second story A more boring picture of our backyard. You can see our poor snowman (or what's left of him). Backyard from second story Here is the view to the street from upstairs. It is hard to see how big the snow banks have become. The worst ones are by my other driveway, but I couldn't get a good picture of them from inside. Street view from second story Finally, here is a view of the roof and the chimney for the fireplace we don't use. Roof view to north Two bad we have already used snowpocalypse and snowmageddon this year. I have a feeling we aren't done yet. We are also worried about when this all melts.
