The weathermen said there was a “potential” for three feet of snow but we didn’t think it would really happen. Not really all that unusual for New England so I’m not really sure what all the hoopla was about on the news. We kept hearing words like massive, historic, monster but really it’s pretty much normal for us at least once a year. So camera in hand I thought it would be fun to get a few pictures for those of you not use to living in this much snow. It started off innocently enough Friday morning with just barely a dusting, taken at seven in the morning.
By Friday night at 5:30 not much more snow had fallen since the morning and as you can see from the foot tracks we could still walk around easily.
But I guess for once the weathermen were right about the snow, seven in the morning on Saturday, 24 hours later and we woke up to a different landscape.
The husbands truck at 5:30 Friday night…..
The husbands truck at 7:00 Saturday morning. Have you noticed the snow on the front hood of his truck is higher then the actual roof of the truck?
Dylan watching Dad shovel from the porch this morning. We aren’t able to sweep the snow off the porch since the snow at ground level is higher then the front porch so it’s going to have to wait where it sits.
Thanks goodness our plow guy had been here but mister man still had to shovel out to the open plowed drive. Poor Dylan needed some private time and was barking asking Dad to shovel faster. See how much higher the snow is compared to Dylan’s back? Dylan is 29” tall.
The mounds of snow we have around here blocks everything from view for Dylan and he wasn’t thrilled…..
Until Dad brought out the snow scoop and was teasing Dylan, he likes dropping his jolly ball into the scoop and barking at it.
(Please people don’t email me about how chubby Dylan looks. Dylan weighs 82 pounds but has more hair then God. He get snow in the layers of hair from rolling around in it and it puffs up making him look enormous. Dylan is the perfect size!)
This is pretty much what it’s doing now outside and will be snowing like this until four this afternoon. So I’m staying inside by the wood stove and enjoying a book and a little leisure time while the men are outside playing in the snow.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday and if you live in the northeast be safe and have fun in the snow!
