Even though we're nearing the end of February, we're finally starting to experience some nice snowfalls.
We had snow last Sunday night into Monday, but it was hard to tell how many inches fell as there was much wind and drifting. We're guessing somewhere between 8" and 12". (Papa Pea immediately declared the house felt much warmer with the snow banked up around it!)
A couple more inches have fallen kinda helter-skelter since then. And now the forecast is for heavy snow tonight into tomorrow morning. A little respite and then more heavy snow Saturday night into Sunday.
Yippee-skippee, I say! Even though our outdoor fun snow activities kinda went by the wayside because of someone's swan dive off the ladder, we are both snow-lovers and delight when winter time gives us ample amounts of the white stuff.
Of course, being old (not), retired (we are??) codgers (ahem), we don't have to get out and drive snow-covered, hazardous roads every day as some of you do. For that you have my sincere sympathies, and I will try to refrain from waxing poetically (as if I could) about snuggling down in front of an open fire with a second cup of java on such mornings.
When we have a light snow year, among other things like the frost going down too deeply into the ground because of not enough insulation from the cold, there's always the threat of spring forest fires because of lack of moisture. So we're looking forward to any snow we may get from now until the temperatures start creeping upward and spring looks like it really will arrive once more.
