The calm after the storm
Well, the snow has finally stopped and the sun has come out on a really beautiful Sunday. Not a breath of wind this morning and everything very still. No clouds in the clear blue sky. We rarely have a day with a cloudless sky I can tell you!
This is what the back deck looks like at the moment. The dog has made a path through the snow to get to the yard.
The finally tally for snow fall is just about two feet. Went out this morning to do some shoveling. You can read the story of the temperature over the last two days in the density of the snow. The top 8 inches are very fluffy and easy to shovel. The temperature was definitely below 20F when that stuff fell yesterday. The bottom 2/3 of the snow is much denser and definitely heavier. The temp was in the mid 20's when that stuff fell. Definitely harder to shovel I can tell you. It is at times like this that I am very glad that we have someone who comes and plows the driveway. There is no way that I would want to get out and snow blow 125 ft. of driveway and the big concrete pad up by the garage.
The sun is out finally!! We haven't seen her for about 4 days.
My crazy snowfaced dog. He thinks he is in doggie Nirvana with all the snow. His idea of the best time is for me to throw shovels full of snow at him while he runs around like a maniac. He spends a lot of time with his face buried in the snow snuffling and eating the snow.
