Used to be a ‘new’ Jersey Girl   : now A Colorado Girl

The jury is in

So, pull up a chair (if you can find it) and we’ll have a chat.

The verdict? We got 8-9. Not as much as they received in the city, but still a substantial snow. We were not in the sweet spot for this particular storm. I guess we can be thankful for that. Johnny is getting a true workout so far this year. And Rick is very thankful for his Christmas gift (that was tagged as being from Mother Nature) of waterproof storm pants that keep him warm and dry on his snowblowing chores.

While it did snow during the daylight hours yesterday (and it was beautiful with huge flakes) we seem to be in a trend to get most of our snow overnight and by morning it’s all over with. Such was the case with this storm as well. So, I took advantage of a few peeks of sunlight and headed out with the camera.

This is the second set of stairs that go down to the pool. Neither the dogs or I use them in the winter for obvious reasons.

Remember the lights at the end of our driveway? Maybe I won’t bother turning them on tonight.

I just love shadows on snow.

(Yet another giant icicle that had to be removed from the gutter.)

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
