The weekend brought records amounts of snowfall in Maryland. The area where I live had a total of 24". We spend most of Sunday digging out. End result, 7+ hours in the cold shoveling snow - a bad cold. I have been home from work the last two days sick. Am I ready for Christmas? No! Shopping is done, however I still need to wrap presents, clean the house and finish baking cookies. I am having my family over for Christmas Eve dinner, and back again on Christmas day. I wanted to share this picture of some icicles I took at the side entrance of my house.
