We had another big blizzard last night that gave us about 25cm. of snow. With the 3 storms last week we have over 130 cm or about 55 inches of snow. And there is another possible storm coming Thursday into Friday.
At sunrise this morning I saw all these pretty drifts on the front yard. It's kind of amazing to see how each storm changes the landscape and how the wind makes the drifts different each time.
There was no snow on that table yesterday!
And this is as far as I've gone today. I took the garbage out to the road. Do you see the bag on the right? The snow at the end of the drive was up to my knees and some sifted down my boots. A neighbour has since been in with his tractor and snow blower and cleaned the driveway out. There is no newspaper or mail delivery here today and no school throughout most of the province. The port city of Saint John has declared a state of emergency in the centre core as they can't get all the snow cleared fast enough, and snow removal budgets have gone over the top already. Businesses are losing money as they've had to close early or altogether due to dangerous roads and streets. Who wants to be out shopping for shoes in this?? Although it's surprising how busy the grocery stores are before a storm. Snowbanks in the cities are so high one can't pile anymore snow on top of them. It makes for dangerous driving when you can't see at intersections too.
I am thankful for a kind neighbour who cleaned our driveway again today.
Poor Mr. Snowman is getting buried.
We've had a large flock of Pine Siskin coming the past week and feeding on the nyjer seed. They are fun to watch. This photo was on Saturday.
today at the silo
One last shot that says it all. Groundhog Day 2015 sunrise before the snowstorm. He did see his shadow in Nova Scotia so I guess we'll get more winter. No surprise there!
I'm puttering around the house with decor and a Valentine theme. Anything to take my mind off the snow outside. Have you done any Valentine or even spring decorating?
Thank you for visiting and all your comments. I hope you are having a good week so far. Here's hoping we don't get any more big storms for a while here in the Maritimes.
