The Main Event

The snow of last Friday was just a teaser, today we are having the main event.  I woke up this morning to clear skies and  promised sunshine but a temperature of -6 celsius.  The weather channel promised snow but I thought, surely they had made a mistake.  Wrong!  the clouds moved in and by 1:00pm it was snowing.  Now almost 3 hours later, we have had 4 inches.  I don’t know what that is in metric, this old person still thinks in inches.  Below are two photos taken a few minutes ago, the deciduous trees to the east are barely visible, the snow is that heavy.  I am also posting the view to the west, the same view I posted the other day, but today in the heavier snowfall.  First is to the east.

Second is to the west.

It’s hard to believe that only a few days ago the daffodils were blooming, I guess they are frozen by now.  One thing I do like about the snow is that it is a blanket over the emerging Spring perennials in my garden.  At least the snow is preventing them from freezing.
