where's the house?

This is what we look at as we pull up to our home these days. Yes, that's our two story roof line peaking out behind that gigantic snow pile.  This past weekend the city finally sent a dozen or so dump trucks that spent 8+ hours clearing snow from our neighborhood.  And we are still left with a ton of piles that look like this.  At least 2 cars can now pass each other on the widened roads.
We are competing for the record snowfall ever for Anchorage set back in the 50's.  I'm pretty sure we are going to beat it considering it's only early March.  At least that's something to look forward to.

But it's getting ridiculous out there.  Here is the top of a tall outdoor trash can at some local softball fields.  And it's sitting next to the tall fence that lines the perimeter of the field...that's also almost covered.
Here is Matt sporting Maddie under his coat out for a walk.  On the left of him is the starting of the fence for the dugout.  Even with my 5'3" frame I was able to stand 2-3 feet above the roof of the dugout on the packed down snow.
I'm praying our summer isn't spent just watching all this snow melt.  And I look forward to introducing Maddie to grass.
