Photo taken Wednesday, March 5 after Murray cleared the path.
Remember my saying we had a beautiful sunny stretch of days last week? I went out one of those nice days and took photos of all the snow in the backyard. It was deep!
You can see the snowdrift was almost 2 feet deep in spots.
The flower beds are buried, the shrubs are buried, the fire pit is buried.
Well, we had quite the blizzard yesterday. There was snow and sleet and very strong easterly winds that blew the snow into great drifts. Schools were closed in the whole province which means the plows weren't on the road much so driving was treacherous.
This was taken out front at 9:00 in the morning during a lull in the storm. The wind actually blew the snow off the deck.
After lunch I went out and cleared off a bit of the back deck and filled the feeder again. The doves stopped by for a snack.
By suppertime there was 2 more inches of snow on this table.
This photo was taken this morning, March 14, and is the same area as the first photo above. The path is filled with snow and the drift is deeper. I can't even get around the house to take photos of the snow on the other side. You'll have to take my word for it. I haven't heard the official snow total for our area yet but I'm guessing at least a foot.
This is the snowbank next to the front deck. The deck is between 12 and 18 inches from the ground so you can see how deep the snow is here. I wonder how long it will take to melt.
This is looking down the road this morning from our driveway. Murray snow blowed the driveway last night. The road, at this time of writing, is slushy to bare/wet from the road salt and sun.
Gotta love that March sun!
Looking toward our neighbours yard and house. A huge drift.
So Winter, when are you going to leave? I know Spring is arriving on Thursday but I also know that spring weather won't be ours to enjoy for a few weeks yet. Winter, are you going to leave us alone now? Can you let Spring come in with it's warm breeze and sunshine to ever so slowly melt the snow you left behind these past four months? We would really appreciate it.
How's your winter going? Is it on it's way out or is it lingering a bit longer before it allows spring to come in.
Have a nice weekend, whatever the weather, and >>>>
I was getting ready to make scrambled eggs one day two years ago and when I broke them into the bowl this is what happened. A happy smile. :)
