So many times they give a weather forecast of snow or rain and it bypasses us completely. This is one time that we were really hoping they would be wrong on the forecast. Unfortunately they were right on this time, we got the snow and ice they were predicting. 11 inches is about what they estimate for where we live.
I hope this is the last big snow of the season, I really don’t know where I will be able to pile any more of this stuff. It is pretty but I think I am ready for spring.
I had to go out this morning and shovel snow away from the inside of the chain link fencing, it was getting high enough that the dogs would soon be able to step right over the fence, and we have a6 foot fence.
This is a view pulling into our driveway, you can’t even see there is a house back there. The trees are just sagging to the ground with the weight of the snow.
We are a little concerned that this tree will be coming down with the weight of the snow, it is hanging pretty low and we lost one like it last winter to the heavy spring snow.
So many little snow forts made by the drooping trees, if we had kids they would have a ball crawling in and hiding.
A view from the driveway going up the road out front. Needless to say we called it a snow day and stayed home. They are saying over 400 accidents this morning as the rain and slush came first and gave us a nice ice rink under the fresh snow.
You have to admit that it is very pretty out there, as long as you don’t have to go anywhere for a while. The sun is shining brightly off the snow now, I may have to go back out there with thee camera for more play time. I worry about my birch tree above though, one of my favorite trees in the yard.
Some views along the driveway and the front yard, white as far as the eyes can see.
It really can make one wish to be a kid again, even if just for a weekend. Build a snowman and a big snow fort, have a good old fashioned snowball fight….
And then there is my poor arborevitae trees in the front, normally they stand tall and proud, not so much today.
I call this one above my snowfalls….. we have cascading waterfalls so we can have cascading snowfalls right?
We have to find the positive in this long cold winter, I find it by photographing the beauty of the snow. We will be back in the below zero temperatures next week, almost March and it should be much warmer. Spring will come some day, won’t it?
