no not blizzard just BLISS~~ard. the storm came up from the carolinas and virginia. i guess a few other states didn't escape the storm. from what i have read the east coast was hit the hardest. here on the jersey shore i'm hearing crazy amounts like 20". we dug ourselves out, piles of snow everywhere. we stuffed it anywhere we didn't have to touch it again with a shovel! lots of snow, sore arms and backs but, i still think it looks pretty.
