Last night it started to snow before midnight and the wind
was blowing like crazy.
By this morning we had been slammed big time!
I wanted to let the dogs out before 7 and the snow was packed up against the door.
I had to really push to get it open and shoveled off the porch, steps and a small area where they could go potty. Gary started shoveling toward the barn where we keep the snow blower but gave up and walked through the deep snow.
He helped me dig out the gate and the doors to the barns.
How's that for drifting?
My favorite shot of the day.
The temperature hovered around freezing.
Most of the schools in this area were closed and Jenny had to work from home.
The dogs did not come out to the barn until Gary had cleared most of the driveway.
By this afternoon the roads were bare, thanks to the excellent job done by our
Highway Department. They were out there all night.
I went to the bank and Wegmans and made a great dinner with
a little help from "Danny."
We had an apple/carrot/craisin/walnut salad
the chicken I got at the store
and mashed potatoes.
Major comfort food!
Phoebe and Little Wonder also had a spoon of mashed potatoes and a couple
pieces of chicken.
At 5:30 it was pretty calm outside...
and there was a very weak sunset.
It should be above freezing during the next few days,
but it will take awhile for all this snow to melt.
The sky just exploded with color.
