Blizzard of ought-eleven - dug out but bogged down

Takes a special knack or some uncommon fortune or something to get sick days to come on snow days, but the Phactor has done it. Had enough energy yesterday to finish the digging out although it took 5 person hours to do it, and one of us wasn't feeling so hot especially as the day wore on. But it's hard to enjoy a bit of time off, or worse, difficult to accomplish anything useful, when your head feels like it's going to explode and you can't breathe. But no rest for the wicked, the car won't start, and Mrs. Phactor only discovers this after driving it to a morning appointment. So must arrange to get a tow. What a pain. However, things do sort of look nice after a big snow like this. Here's a thread-leafed sawara cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera), which is sort of weepy anyways, coated with snow.
