Snow, snow, and more snow. We have had over 12 inches since last night with much more still coming. Photos cannot quite capture how hard it is coming down or the winds.
I put seed on the ground near our back door as the birds were getting blown off the feeders, but their little snow covered bodies were still being blown over. The seed is now covered in a 4 or 5 foot drift on our deck, so the birds are hopefully snuggled in until after the storm!
When it is snowing this hard I'm addicted to the local road conditions cameras. I sneak a peek a few times a day to see how it is out there (the plows don't visit our neighborhood often, so it always seems pretty bad from here). But today...not a day to be out! Glad we are cozy at home, building forts, playing and pretending. Now lets hope my husband can make it home later! Since several neighbors are currently stuck in the road in front of my house, that isn't a good sign!
NOTE: Can I just say I love our neighbors? Our neighbor 5 houses down is now snowblowing sidewalks for the entire block (love him, he always does this in the big storms so people won't get hurt shoveling). Two guys went out with snowblowers and shovels to attempt (meaning the cars are still stuck) to dig out a few cars stuck in the road out front. And 2 guys are out back helping another neighbor get his car through our massive drift filled alley into his garage. And this is not just today, it is every big storm we have had.
OH...and I went out to try to see how bad our driveway was, and another neighbor had cleared our driveway, and 4 dads were all clearing the alley. Another dad knocked and said he cleared our air intake for our furnace in our yard (covered with a 6' drift) and as I was shoveling the front, another neighbor came out to snowblow the entire sidewalk on our side of the street. THANK YOU!!!!!
