"The sky is low, the clouds are mean,
We are just digging ourselves out from under another 20 inches of snow brought in by the polar vortex, which as you can see from this picture (taken the day before) we didn't really need! 😁
Even though I don't look forward to a blizzard like this, I have to admit there's something thrilling about these storms that I rather enjoy. Maybe it's the exhilaration of fighting against the wind in near white-out conditions! I do like to get out and experience it for a while. 😊
A walk in the woods makes me feel like I'm in Narnia!
Bringing plants in and out of my greenhouse next month is going to be a bit of a challenge! But I'm really just thankful that the greenhouse is still standing right now. I don't think I ever mentioned it here but two of the PVC pipes broke during a windstorm late last fall and I only had time to tape them with FiberFix. Amazingly it has been holding up very well!
Believe it or not, there is a building behind that pile!
The snow was so wind packed that the roof rake wouldn't go through it, so I had to get on the roof with the the snow scoop. No ladder necessary...it's just good practice for mountain climbing! 😃
Looking down, it's hard to see where the roof ends and the snow begins! Those are the porch steps in the top of the picture. When I was ready to come down, I just sat down and slid!
The garden swing has disappeared. There is a birdbath in there somewhere too!
This was a monster of a storm and I know many of you have been affected as well. I hope everyone is safe and warm and enjoying the winter wonderland! 😊
