No, we're not snowed in, but we did get a nice amount . . . finally! We have somewhere around 7" with a bit of drifting. It started snowing about mid-morning and looked as if it was going to stop right about the time it got dark, but now at a little after 7 p.m. it's snowing again. According to the forecast I just saw, we're to get maybe 2-4" more by 2 a.m. at which time they say the snow will be over.
It was coming down so hard early this afternoon that we lost Internet access for several hours. I guess the signals just couldn't see to plow through the snowflakes!
This was taken through our living room window around noon time. The temperature was in the high 20s all day so it's a wet snow and with the wind a lot of our windows are plastered with snow.
The white ground area in the right half of this picture is where my raised garden beds are. It's the first time this winter they've been totally covered.
The kitchen window over the sink is tucked in a little nook protected outside on one side by the entrance to the back porch and the wall of my pantry on the other. It hardly ever gets any snow in there but you can see how much snow the wind blew in today. The window box outside the window has evergreen boughs stuck in it for winter decoration and they are covered. To the left is an old plastic thermometer, and it's nearly hidden by snow, too.
We went out between 2 and 3 p.m. to do some preliminary shoveling of paths, cleaning off vehicles and getting in wood.
Above is a shot into the woods on the road back to the wood shed.
And another taken in the same area. A real winter wonderland with the snow coating and clinging to everything.
I can hardly wait to see what the scenery will look like by tomorrow morning. Snow, snow, snow. Yippee!
