This snow is very wet and heavy and clings to everything….
I took this one through the patio doors…. the rest of the pics I opened a door, clicked the camera, and shut the door… QUICK!
The blue spruces up by the house seem ok, but we lost a few trees down along our river from the weight of the clinging snow
This is out the side door aiming towards our road…. of course you can not see the road beyond those pine trees, because it was buried under 2 feet or more of drifts!
Even the tall cedar arborvitaes in front of the house which are pretty protected became overladen with snows and hanging way down. Even when we knocked the snow off, they do not spring back up again. Hope they aren’t ruined???
It was blasting so bad, the birds abandoned the feeder and went to hide. You can not even see the river beyond the trees in this pic, visibility was almost nil.
All of these pics were taken earlier in the day on Wednesday…. since that time, we got a lot more snow and blowing too.
The winds are blowing horrendously and now the temps dropped… we are below zero this morning, and not to get above 10 degrees all day. The wind chills are wayyyyy below zero too. ACK Where is summer?
