It has been a snowy 24 hours here. Another huge storm has made its way across the country and up into New England. This was a Nor’easter, not atypical for New England in February. But as all storms in this new climate we have created, this one was HUGE. It began snowing Thursday morning, snowed all day and all night and finally stopped this morning. We got about a foot…which is on top of the foot we got last week. Sigh….Spring feels a long was off.
It is 30F which is warmer than it has been. This makes the snow heavy and wet.
Even the more delicate branches of the birch are heavy with snow.
And our poor mailbox is buried!
I spent the morning shoveling. The driveway, the mailbox, front steps, back steps and paths to the coops and to the sheds. Fergus will appreciate the paths. The snow was TOO deep for him this morning.
The squirrels were busy at the bird feeders this morning. I will have to fill them again. The birds will be hungry.
So it was a busy morning. And there is more snow coming tomorrow..though only 4-6″…..and another storm should arrive on Tuesday. ENOUGH!
I am VERY ready for Spring!
