Our snow, really sparse over the last decade, arrived early this year, and just seems to keep coming. We thought we were almost done and then bam! A new warning arrived on Thursday. We braced for a big storm and were thankful that it held off a bit but once it started, late on Friday, it really increased our snow volume. Our fire pit is almost completely buried, the kids little plastic house is snowed in and my precious garden shed is looking forlorn and cold. I'll have to sweep off the roof and the front porch so as it melts, it doesn't flood the inside. Poor shed!
We were thankful as well that though the snow was heavy in volume, it fell without a blizzard, without bone chilling temperatures and without a million car accidents and warnings to stay home. It was a cozy stay at home for us anyway so we were okay. Lovely and warm.
This afternoon, the sun came out and the melting from the roof began. Drip, drip all down our windows today. We shovelled and snowplowed and enjoyed the warmth of the rays. The trees cast shadows on the glittery snow ~ a favorite site for me out here. The rest of the week it will continue to warm up and by next weekend, we'll be well in to the plus side. Fingers crossed this is the last of the snow for us. Snowmageddon can just stay away now!
