Looking out the dining room window at the height of the storm. The snow was blowing wildly in the wind.
We got through it! The big blizzard left us with over 30cm. of snow all blown around by gusty winds that made lots of drifts in yards, fields, streets and roads. It was a school 'storm day' again today and decent enough out that the kiddos could get out and play in the new snow. We are still getting some snow today - probably another couple cm. - but the wind has shifted to the north and is much calmer.
Hubby's trip was postponed until Sunday for which we are both thankful. Word has it there is another snowfall coming Friday into Saturday and possibly one on Monday which is why he's flying out Sunday. It's a winter wonderland here and the snowmobilers, skiers and snowboarders, snowshoers and sledders will have a blast in all this fresh snow.
Here are a few photos during the storm.
Looking out our front window, which did not blow in much to my relief, at the snow blowing across the road.
The snowplough didn't go by very much yesterday and some of the wind gusts were so loud I thought it was a plough. I did happen to catch this one flying by. It looks so close but it's not really.
More blowing snow. Note the mailbox swinging sideways. :)
A kindly neighbour came to blow out the driveway late afternoon before Murray got home. I was so thankful that Murray didn't have to contend with cleaning the driveway out.
And here are some photos taken today after the storm.
I found this drift against the end of the house today. Pretty neat eh?
The huge drift over the flower bed. There are daffodil and tulip bulbs under there somewhere.
Another huge drift.
I can't believe how much snow drifted into our backyard. The steps were cleared by moi the day before and some of the deck too. I don't know how Murray will tackle this.
Well, enough of that. I know some parts of the New England States received even more snow than we did and I saw photos of the terrible damage along the Massachusetts coast as the waves broke through and destroyed many homes. I'm so thankful we didn't have any damage or loss of power.
Now we have to clear up as much snow as possible before the next storm. I think I'm getting tired of winter now. How about you?
We have a one day reprieve tomorrow and I have a hair appointment. I may even do a bit of shopping and of course get some food just incase I don't get out again until next week sometime.
Have a good one.
