I was feeling kind of imprisoned through the whole house, though, as the 4-5" of snow we got Monday night was blowing around at 30+ mph all day. Here's the view from the kitchen:
I'll give you some closer looks at that view above. This peak kept growing throughout the day:
Beyond that is the snow fort that Grandpa and Courtney made on Tuesday. Grandpa said Courtney plans to add onto it next Tuesday.
If you look way past that in this next photo, past the clotheslines, past the lilac bushes... you can see the huge snowbank that's out there. It's at least 7 or 8 feet tall. Or was. Probably taller after all was said and done yesterday.
Now we go to look out the living room windows:
The snow was still blowing, adding onto that drift. It comes up all the way from the ground, so it must be at least 7 feet tall also. I tried to capture the blowing snow, but it mostly just looks blurry:
The wind was from the south, so the good part of it all was that the temperature was going up. It made it pretty close to 35°. The warmth combined with the continuing blowing snow made for different decorations later on the kitchen windows:
Surely spring is on its way, right? Please say YES!!!
