It Came.....

And still falling. To think just a couple of days ago one of the raised beds was free of snow and I was thinking I'd get out and clear it of weeds etc., lol! I was out early, there was at least a foot of snow on the chickens greenhouse roof. I dragged the ladder up around the side of it and started pushing the snow off with a broom. The broom slipped from my hands and went sliding down the other side of the green house. Got down off the ladder, went to see where it landed and saw that the snow was so deep there, that I wasn't going to climb through it to get that broom so made my way back to the house to get another one. Then, of course, it was time to haul the ladder to the feeders as they were piled high with snow and I could see the little Juncos trying to get down through it. That done, I went around to shovel off the front porch as the storm door wouldn't open with all the snow in the way. Himself is now outside trying to get through the snow in the driveway. Oh well, a few warm days and it won't last for long.....I hope! So, I'm off to fill the feeders once again. The Grosbeaks have been by several times and have emptied two feeders.



The car is there somewhere.


There's a barrel here that's at least three feet in height.


Table and chairs.

Yes, it will melt and yes, it "mommicks" us very much, but I still think it's pretty and would even if it were here.

Send it on down Maine way..

My goodness - that's some snow! Makes our fuss about the snow in the UK seems somewhat ridiculous by comparison!

Oh - and hope you find your car again OC.

Wow, you really did get quite a storm!
We've been having cold weather and this afternoon it actually snowed for about 2 minutes! That's enough for me, though I love the snow, I'm ready for spring! The grosbeaks are beautiful!

Friday was officially the first day of Spring. Surely it can only get better from here!

OMG what a nightmare. And here's me thinking oh no, because it's not sunny today, and we have a bit of rain forecast later.... lol. I've been thoroughly spoilt this past 10 days or so with the weather here, been more like May. Sigh.
