Snowpocalypse 2011: 7:00 p.m.

The thing about blizzards is that they insist on happening in the winter, so if they happen in the evening hours, it’s too dark to see much. Like so:

The scene outside the front door at 7 p.m.

The scene outside the front door at 7 p.m.

But there, for what its worth, is a pretty good depiction of what is happening right now: it’s snowing, and there is more snow on the ground than there was when I photographed this scene at 4:00 p.m., but not a lot more.

It’s pretty windy and drifting, so I also took a photo of the drift against the front door. It’s mere inches high right now, so I’m interested in seeing where it is by morning.
If the fact that I am taking photos of minor snowdrift against the door isn’t enough of a clue, I’ll just state it outright: This is really a pretty boring thing right now. We might have snow thunder later, which might be cool to see, but I might well be asleep when it happens. The hour-by-hour forecast for my area now calls for the blizzard to really set in at midnight.
