SOLSC – Day 15
I am writing this post Tuesday night, 7 P.M. so that I am all set to post tomorrow. The snow started here around 9:00 last night, and as I write, it is still snowing and blowing. Enough already!
We have about 16 inches and as I said it is still coming down so I know we will add to this. So, how has the scenery changed here since yesterday? Allow me to show you. As you look at the pictures bear in mind that the first on was taken yesterday Monday) afternoon at 4:00 while the second was taken today (Tuesday) at 3:00 – a mere 23 hours later.
Here is the bird feeder just outside our dining area window.
I’m glad I filled the feeder yesterday. These guys are,too.
Our mailbox is across the street. As you can see from the second picture, we did not have mail delivery today.
Here’s a better look.
We have several bushes lining our roadway.
Of course, we park our cars in the driveway.
That spot of blue is Kathy’s car.
If you look closely at this street light, you can see icicles.
Now, I didn’t take a yardstick out with me when I went to shovel, so I just stuck the shovel in the snow.
Here is another shot with some of the snow removed.
As you can see, I did some fancy shoveling. I just shoveled to the end of the driveway so that the paper can be delivered. I know the roadway isn’t cleared, but I have wonderful neighbor who is plowing that.
I know that with the way it is blowing all of my work will be undone. Wish there were some kids around who wanted to make a buck. I truly don’t mind snow, but couldn’t we have had sixteen 1 inch snowfalls instead of one 16 inch snowfall? I foresee a snow blower in our garage before next winter sets in.
To add a little end note to this, I went to get the paper off of the porch this morning and couldn’t open the storm door. Seems the snow drifted and is half way up the door. Well, at least the sun is shining today.
