I am guessing that we have had around a foot of snow since last night. As of a few minutes ago we are officially in “blizzard” status, rather than just a snow storm. That means that the winds have picked up and will be blowing the snow around.
It’s Sunday, so a good day to enjoy the weather from inside and then sally forth to shovel now and then.
The snow on the branches highlights the trees’ architecture.
Zooming back out from the last picture, our neighbor is helping us out with the snow blower for the second time today. In the meantime, my son and I cleaned off the cars and shoveled for an hour this morning. The snow is so wet that it is good to take it in stages and not let it get too high before tackling it.
I have been trying to shake off the evergreens to keep the branches from breaking, but the snow piles right on again. This is the arborvitae by the front door.
One of the best ways to estimate the snowfall is to look at the bird bath. This picture was taken a few hours ago. I feel like we have the shoveling under control, so now time to just enjoy the snow day!
Watching an episode of “Nature” about penguins at the post office in Antarctica. And finding out more about the atrocities that happened in Sri Lanka in the book below.
How can I complain when comparing my situation to the struggles of so many others in the world?
