It certainly does look like winter out there. Papa Pea went out to get our mail yesterday afternoon and took these couple of shots of our driveway.
It was actually very pretty.
He had to stop and remove one tree that had snapped off and was lying over the road.
Last night when we closed up the poultry, there was an honest 1/2" of ice coating everything. Nothing looks much different today.
We're still under a winter storm warning until tomorrow morning. Snow and ice or rain is scheduled to start again before noon.
A friend and I had a fun outing planned for today but cancelled. It wasn't a "necessary" thing by any means and neither of us wanted to take a chance on iffy roads.
Our temp this morning was 23 degrees and although we've had two geese faithfully sitting on eggs, even their brief forays off the nest to go down to the pond to wet their undersides for moisture for the eggs may cool them down too much in this weather. Papa Pea fears the embryos aren't gonna make it.
Mother Nature never lets spring come to the northland in a pleasant, easy or normal way, but we're all hoping this is her last blast of winter-ish weather. It's about time.
