Thought I'd share a few shots of the snow left behind by Nemo.
When I went downstairs yesterday morning at 5 am, the yard stick taped to the chair showed 17 inches.
The wind blew hard enough all Friday night and Saturday to cover our covered front porch in at least an inch...three in some places...of snow.
We always park my van at the head of the driveway just in case. Thankfully, the snow was light and fluffy which made shoveling much easier. Grace wanted to help and begged for a chance to shovel too. Don't think it was as easy as she'd thought it would be.
On the way to the van, I stepped into one drift that was up to my knees. Considering my imposing height of 5 feet, a drift to my knees is no biggie. It was the drift in the backyard that was up to my hips that had me pondering ways to extract myself - and had the little urchins belly laughing at the vision of mom suddenly semi-disappearing in the snow.
Ellie (in pink) fashioned herself a seat in the snow so she could relax and watch us shovel. Grace had other thoughts. She soon dumped her dustpan of snow on Ellie's head.
The wind blew constantly yesterday which was a bother while shoveling. I felt like half the snow I cleared from the driveway blew back into my face. Still, the wind created these wonderful striations around the urchins footprints and
just in the yard. Hopefully, this is the last hurrah for winter this year. I am so ready for spring. How about you?
