That’s a lot of snow in a short time

This is the weather map showing total snowfall from Wednesday  night to Thursday morning in our region:

I haven’t gone out to measure again … but our neighbour came and plowed our driveway yesterday around 4, and by this morning you could hardly tell she’d been here.

This is what it looks like on the south side of the house, which is in the lee of the wind, so not getting the full amount of snow as it’s coming from the north:

Of course we are accustomed to this kind of thing, though it’s a little early to have so much on the ground, and it is definitely unusual to get so much so fast.

The plows are out in full force, but we are planning to just stay home for the next few days. The Reluctant Farmer went into town to fetch the Small People, and we’ll all just stay home by the fire until things settle down out there!

Stay home, stay safe, stay warm!

    I love snow days! Staying home not having to go anywhere! Enjoy your family time!

  2. Snow days are great! The Small People actually went out and had a snowball fight with their dad last night. :)

    Apparently The Reluctant Farmer tried to get the cows engaged, throwing snowballs at them too, but they just mooed at him. Probably an opposable thumb thing...
