Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

     There' only one thing wrong with this scenario. It ain't Christmas!

      Yesterday we had 10 cm (4 in) of snow. Not heavy wet spring snow but dry powdery winter snow. To add to this we get about the same amount of snow over the next two days.



My standard snow post

      Now I know that 10 cm is not a lot of snow for some places. The Canadian Maritimes had 50 cm (20 in) yesterday. However, some years our winter total of snow is only  10 cm. 


The juniper always catches a good load of snow

    As  for now, I might as well enjoy the snow and not crab so that people will look the other way.


My lamp shade is another standard for measuring snow

  2. We had a skiff of snow overnight. Today we anticipate freezing rain. Sigh. I'd rather have snow!

  3. Hey Red, it just means you get to enjoy your cross country skiing a little longer. Yes, we did get hit with quite the storm, some areas of the Maritimes getting it worse than others - just means we will be walking on snow a bit longer, as you will too, eh. What surprised me most about this storm were the hurricane like winds and trust me buddy, it was wicked. We did not lose power, however many did. Aah, such is Mother Nature when one tampers with her product. Have a great day.

    1. I quit skiing when they dumped the snow from the road over my trail. However, it was an excellent year for cross country skiing.

  6. Um, Red, I don't think you are complaining. It's the wrong time of year for all that snow, isn't it? That''s a LOT. Makes for some good pictures, though. :-)

  9. Hello there! We woke up to everything covered in snow this morning too! Maybe 1 to 2 inches worth. Guess Spring will have to wait a little longer.
