The much anticipated and forecast storm was late arriving. Instead of Sunday night, it came howling in around 6 a.m. and continued throughout the day and rest of the night. We plowed and shoveled twice during the day and awoke to another 8 inches on Tuesday morning.
The bird feeders and trees were decorated with lots of white, fluffy snow
H and his trusty plow were immediately on top of things by 6 a,m.
And me, looking for all the world like one of my garden gnomes, did shoveling duty on the deck and front porch. Gratefully, the snow was light and fluffy so it was not much of a chore.
Some members of the family were of no help whatsoever. Sluggo spent his time on the recliner grooming himself. I guess being cute counts though.
The garden is now under a deep, white, blanket of snow and can sleep peacefully till April, because I don't think we're going to see bare ground before then!
Wednesday morning dawned pink and cold with a wee bit of sea smoke in the bay. It's way too early for sea smoke, but then, the temperature was down in the single digits!
And so begins another winter season. This one just started a tad early as we normally don't get this much snow until January or February. The storm total was about 17+ inches and then last night we got another 2 inches on top of that. 19 inches and counting!
