Nothing to blog about today but some boring, ol', black and white snow pictures. And I'm so happy I have them to share! We woke up to about 8" of new snow on the ground this morning. Finally! A bit of snow for us. It's beautiful.
Out the front door looking across the deck.
Deer trail into the woods. We saw a gazillion deer tracks in the snow this morning.
Snow piled up against the mailboxes out on the road.
Hubby shoveling on roof where we get a built-up of melting snow which forms an ice dam if we don't keep it cleared. He stopped short of shoveling all he usually does because he encountered "black ice" on the south side of the roof and fell on his posterior. Luckily, he didn't slide at all (whew!) but stayed firmly attached to where he went down.
While he was working on the roof, I went to clear around storage buildings in the back. Guess what I saw? A rabbit! We haven't seen a rabbit on the property for maybe 2 or 3 years. We were beginning to think they had all been eaten by owls or some other predator. This guy looked pretty healthy . . . and not at all afraid of me.
Chicken Mama left her plow truck here with us for the afternoon while she's in town at work so hubby is out now clearing our driveway and yard area. Before she arrived, our good neighbor drove his truck over offering to plow us out. We thanked him but said we'd be able to handle it. Sure is nice to have thoughtful neighbors . . . and a daughter with a big snow plow to loan! We have a snowblower and a blade on our heavy-duty Gravely garden tractor but a plow on a truck is one heckuva lot faster.
