A walk down our snowy road

When the snow stopped and we had a good handle on the clearing of the driveway and front steps, I took the camera and headed down our road to document this big snow.

Our neighbor’s big wooden bear that stands by their driveway is a little buried. Good thing he’s still wearing his scarf.

Our other neighbor has a problem to clear up before he can get out of his driveway!

A look down our road in both directions. The guy who was awarded the plowing contract from the town did not do a very good job on our road this time. He’s turned it into a one lane road!

Our neighbors at the end the road have quite a wall of snow from plowing out their driveway, wouldn’t you say? I think it’s going to be there for a while.

The trees were wearing heavy robes of white.

We were lucky we didn’t have too much damage to our trees. Several large limbs came down and our forsythia hedge is more than likely ruined (it needed a heavy pruning anyway), so we were lucky. Until the snow melts we won’t know just how damaged the hedge is, but it doesn’t look promising, does it?

We never lost power which really surprised me! We decided not to clear the other part of our circular driveway since we don’t use it very often anyway. Johnny will have to stay in his spot next to the garage until the snow melts since there is no way to get him back down to his covered spot below the deck. A whole lot of melting is going to have to go on here! We’re supposed to get another small snow (1-3 inches) in a couple of days too. March is certainly coming in like a lion!

All I can is that it wasn’t quite the romantic picture I had in my head of being snowed in. Instead of sitting around playing video games or watching movies in front of a cozy fire, we were out breaking our backs trying to clear snow, or as Rick puts it “moving snow from one spot to another.” It was exhausting!

WOW! That’s a LOT of snow! You sure captured it at its finest though. 
Beautiful! You are right- it’s gonna be some crazy melt!!

UGL doesn’t have school tomorrow.  The roads can’t be cleared. They got close to three feet, more in some spots! Oh well =( Can’t wait to get up before the sun rises.

Tucker and me made a fort under our forsynthias…it’s a big tunnel under those poor things haha.

Luke, a fort under your forsythias sound very cool. I was thinking of digging out an igloo in the huge pile by our front door!
