Round One and Round Two

IMG 3155

What follows are photos of Round One on Monday. As I mentioned, Phil is not a welcome woodchuck and better stay hidden in his hole. This snow was beautiful: wet and fluffy and stuck to everything in sight, tracing all the tree branches in white.

Round Two which arrived in the wee hours of the morning this morning, was quite a different animal. Several times I woke up to sleet hitting the window, tink, tink, tink. The sight out the window this morning was not a welcome one. Yet another six inches of snow, but this time very dense and with an added something extra thrown in just to keep it interesting — a coating of an inch or more of ice. The only good thing I can say about the snow is that Rick did cancel his road trip to Maryland and is working from home today.

Here is what it looks like now.

The stuff is the consistency of snow cones. All I need is some colored flavoring and I could start a snow cone franchise.

Moving it was like trying to pick up concrete. I first had to break the top layer of ice and toss it before I took a shovelful. I think a nice soaking bath will feel pretty good tonight.

Bella is the only one who doesn’t mind.

I don’t think Round One or Round Two is going to melt before Round Three which is expected on Sunday through Monday with a predicted additional 6-12 inches with maybe an ice storm thrown in. It’s still days away and too early to call yet, but that’s at least what they are saying now. I can’t wait.

Aww, what a great photo of Bella’s beautiful face.  That one photo looks like you have a huge white donut in the middle of your table.  I think you’ve gotten more snow than we have.  And of course you got the snow earlier than we did.  I was able to get out and shovel the majority of the snow BEFORE we got the sleet and rain.  We never got the freezing rain they predicted which was why I stayed home.  Oh well, almost got my taxes done this afternoon!

Wow, you are REALLY having a February! I love that second photo of the patio table, with the big “snow donut” on top.
