Hi all -
I thought I'd share pictures of our first big snow of the season. I define a "big" snow as one that I have to shovel. We've had other storms, but none were more than about 8" so I was able to just drive over the snow and smash it down rather than shoveling. The latest storm started on Sunday and finished up yesterday, leaving behind about 18" of snow. Here's what it looked like out the back door:
And out the front:
I start my shoveling on the front porch. Here it is halfway done with Lance sitting next to the snow to try to give it some scale:
Then I head out the walk to the gate:
When I get to the gate, I get to see what's still ahead of me:
The road is way down on the left side of the photo. But another hour or so of work gives me a nice, clear driveway:
I actually really enjoy these snows. It's a bit of work to get the driveway clear, but it's beautiful outside while you're doing it and it's so quite and peaceful. We're supposed to get some pretty big dumps this spring, so we'll see what tune I'm singing after shoveling a multi-foot snowfall....
