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.
