Mountains of Snow
We have been hit hard with snow this winter. At first, it was an interesting diversion, but this last 14 inches of snow (on top of who knows how many feet) is getting tiring. The snowblower is great for the driveway, but we can't get it onto the deck so we have to shovel that by hand.
It's great snowman-building snow, but it's not fun when it sticks to the shovel and weighs a ton. I finished the deck so my dog Java would be able to get outside. Here are a few pictures of the mountain of snow around my deck and how deep it is compared to the trees and gazebo.
Here is another picture of my backyard.
It is pretty to look at, but I am wondering what is going to happen when it all melts, as it must do at some point. Not to mention the icicles hanging from my gutters that are so big that I think they will pull the gutters off the house. They could also impale someone.
And finally, just to put it all in perspective, here is my husband (5'11") standing next to the snow on the driveway.
Our world is at a standstill, and I don't mind that. After I have another cup of coffee, I might take a walk and see what other pictures I can snap while the snow is still a beautiful white. Or I might just stay inside where it's nice and warm.
