In case you think I jest ...

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Hard to imagine that a few short months ago we could sit happily by the pool.

I know, I know. Are you tired of tuning into my blog only to see yet another post on the white stuff? I seem to be fixated on SNOW in my posts lately. Maybe that’s because it’s been snowing. Alot. Right now as I type big, lazy flakes are drifting down from the sky. It’s not going to last long, but still. It’s snowing. Again. And tomorrow it’s predicted we might get 6-12. It’s starting to sound like a jail sentence. [Finger pointing] ‘You there! You get 6-12!’ The driveway is coated with a light dusting but it’s not enough to do anything about. It’s supposed to get above freezing today and the sun should be out a bit later so it will all melt away. Unlike what we already have on the ground.

If you are not having winter where you live, let me help you out.

Here’s the ever-growing pile by the front steps. Please note the Christmas garland still wrapped around the railing. We’ve not been able to get the Christmas decorations down yet as we can’t really get to them. I guess I could take the garlands off but they would have to be put somewhere to thaw.

Here’s the end of our driveway on one side with a view down our street.

A rock in our yard with undisturbed snow on top of it.

Let’s take a closer look at our lights on the driveway markers.

They put out a feeble light when we turn them on. I suppose I could get an ice pick and chop away at the snow, but as yet I haven’t. I didn’t manage to get the Christmas bows off that I had on them either, so they are buried in there somewhere and probably ruined.

But really, I’m not complaining. Really, I’m not. Yet.


Nooo!  Don’t stop posting the snow pics - they’re really beautiful.
Love the shadows from the fence in the 1st pic. And what animal made the tracks?

Betty, well since it’s supposed to snow tomorrow/tomorrow night I guess you’ll get to see more! Glad you’re enjoying our snowy winter. As far as the tracks are concerned, they look like rabbit although I have never seen a rabbit since we’ve lived here. But the tracks are persistent.

I would be complaining - my least favourite time of year - roll on spring.

Joyce, I know you’ve had some rough weather this year too! Just think how wonderful Spring will be when it does come!

Ask me tomorrow. By then I might be complaining depending on how much snow we get overnight! wink
