I have a cross stitched hanging I put up at the beginning of every winter. It shows a happy snowman with the words "Welcome Winter" stitched on it.
This sampler was taken down and put away until next year a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, Mother Nature didn't get the memo that we were no longer welcoming sleet, freezing rain, ice and snow. We were not welcoming more winter.
This is going out our driveway this morning. The snow has continued to come down all day since then.
Our mailbox across the main road out front.
When we went out to do mid-afternoon chores, we shoveled and did a little clearing. Looks to be only an actual build-up of about 3"
of snow but the consistency is like that of snow cone slush. If our temp hadn't stayed around 33° all day, I have a feeling the measured inches would be more. As they say though, it ain't over yet. The snow is predicted to continue until after dawn tomorrow morning.
Lastly, bye-bye raised garden beds. They're disappearing. Again.
