Our "Super Saturday Blizzard" fell on Dec 19, 2009. A record 20+ inches of snow fell in the Balt./Wash. area, the most ever in a 24-hour period. I had a ball taking pictures of the progress of the snowfall's ever- higher climb up windows and atop deck furniture.
"Lunch on the deck?"
We hope everyone in the sunnier sections of the country patriotically overspent to make up for the one third of the population who could not shop on this fiscally most-important of days.
