Snow update

I know you're just all waiting to see snow pics again! Aren't you? Okay, maybe Mark is. Here are some that I took the day Courtney went sliding down the hill. Most of them were taken from the treetops. Previous to this winter, I'd never thought I'd be up high enough to see over the tops of those evergreens! But I was, and I had to take some photos, just for a different perspective. So that was March 2nd.

Yep, that actually was an airplane flying overhead as I was taking pics.

Believe it or not, we haven't gotten any more snow since then! Unless you count the few big fat flakes we got yesterday morning in the midst of rain showers. I'm not holding my breath, of course, because after all, it is still March. But the forecast looks hopeful (for not getting snow) for the next week, at least.

The snow we did have has been melting, slowly but surely. We have tons of it left (literally), but it sure is nice to see that it's leaving. Below are some pics I took on Sunday morning, March 7th. It's nice to see bare ground again, even if it is muddy. Lots of snow has melted since then (though you'd never know it by looking toward the evergreen trees), and we have lots more mud and puddles. We've also been having fog for several days. Blech. But spring IS coming!!!

Wow! Had not thought about the fact that having snow piled up so dern high would be a temporary advantage! Great pics!

Great pictures! i can not believe how much snow you have. Thanks to the wind it is all piled very nicely in your yard. I love iciles they are another piece of nature that is never the same and can not be duplicated, your pictures are awesome.

Thank you both!

You know, the only reason we can see some bare ground now is because that's where the snow had been blown off by the snowblower. If not for that, it'd still be solid white and deep around here! Ack!
