Winter Came In Strong in Prospect CT Dec 16 2020
The storm came in with the strength of a Nor'easter and when I measured the depth in my yard, I was just a hair under 10 inches in depth.
The good news was the temperature was so cold that it was not heavy to shovel, but it's volume created large piles all around the walks and driveway.
For so many the idea of a winterland for Christmas is exciting and with the day a week away, it won't look as pretty then.
We have a level yard with a lot of plantings along the borders as well as a large deck for warm weather entertaining. It's all in a dormant stage until next spring.
Even from the street, the snow is attarctive and adds that typical New England charm that we appreciate at Chrismas.
But for my tastes I still like the look in the yard in June and I'm wearing shorts and short sleeved shirt.
