We got a fair amount of snow in the last 24 hours — about 9 inches by my measure. It was blowing around a bit, but was nothing like the blizzard from a few winters ago because the snow was heavy and wet and didn’t move much once it touched the trees, ground or whatever it stuck to. These pictures were taken around noon — and a lot of the snow had blown off the trees by then. When we first let Leo out in the yard, so many of the tree branches were bent all the way to the ground. Jim said he saw Leo pee on the top of a tree branch!
The way the snow is wrapped around the wires — it looks like PVC pipe!
Early this morning the chain link fence around the garden was completely filled in with snow. There was also about 6 inches of snow stacked on the top bar of the fence.
Luckily, we own a snowblower — which we purchased for just such an occasion. The snow had blown right up to the garage door!
Then there is the joy of living on a corner. Thank you Mr. Snow Plow driver for making sure to move all the snow from the intersection in front of the end of our driveway.
It was waist high on me!
Abominable snow husband Jim started clearing the driveway right away, while I shoveled the sidewalk and played with Leo in the yard.
Here’s Jim posing with his handiwork.
It was really good packing snow, so I decided to make Leo a brother — snow dog!
I gave him rocks for his eyes and nose…
That’s your new brother, snow dog.
Uh oh…. something tells me snow dog won’t be long for this yard…
After all of the excitement, Leo was exhausted — so we all went in to warm up.
How much snow did you get in the storm?
