Ready For A New Year

For the first time in the past few years, we're being blessed with enough snow to make it feel like a real winter.
 

Last Monday, during our first heavy snow of the season, we took a walk in our woods and quickly found we should have strapped on our snowshoes for the trek.
 

Even the many well-defined wildlife trails through our woods were obliterated. 
 
The storm was labeled a blizzard and it would have been if we had had wind with it, but we experienced just the beautiful snowfall.
 
Since Monday we've had one more significant period of snow and last night we got about another one and a half inches.  We must have at least two feet on the ground now.
 
There are snowplow piles all over and our house is completely banked with snow which makes it all seem warmer than if the foundation was bare and exposed to all the cold weather.  According to the forecast, starting tonight we're going into the deep freeze with temps well below zero for about a week.  This calls for digging out the long underwear and heaviest mitts.
 
Papa Pea and I will celebrate the New Year by staying cozied in by the open fire.  Hope you all can do whatever you please to start off this new year of 2022.  May the months ahead bring peace to all weary souls and heavy hearts.

Happy New Year! 🎊πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ


Rain and fog here in northern Virginia. I don’t know about you but we didn’t make it to midnight. Woke up briefly to the sound of fire works.

Mama Pea said...

Nancy - Shades of Minnesota! Wondering if your snow will now last the winter or if it will melt shortly? Happy New Year!

Rosalea - We had a reading of -11° this morning but now the sun is shining brightly so we're hoping for a warm up during the day. Happy New Year to you also!

Katie C. - We've never made it to midnight on New Year's Eve for several years! I think we turned off the lights at 10 o'clock. We were kinda of listening for fireworks, too, but heard none. Happy New Year to you and yours!

Well, winter has certainly made it presence known in your area. We are still waiting for winter in the mid-Atlantic!
