By this morning we just had beautiful sunny skies, but yesterday there was a big blue blob on the radar, stretching all the way from Iowa to Montreal. It just slowly moved east all day and all night.
I thought I'd just check out the side yard too, and guess what I found when I opened the door! This storm came with an east wind, and obviously built a substantial drift out here. I've never been able to see that before, 3 feet high where I measured it!
But the snow was going to thwart me yet! It had drifted across the front of the garage, so I dug out my builder's ruler to see how deep it actually was, sticking it in in front of the garage door.
The view up our driveway was looking daunting at this point. Can you see what that reads?
It was a slow job, even with his big blower. The fine flakes had packed together tightly, so it was heavy snow, and so deep that it would overwhelm his 2 foot blower if he didn't go slow. But still, it was about 8 minutes and our drive was clear. There's a time when my winter toys just aren't enough! And so nice to know your neighbours!
And in two days it's supposed to be back above freezing, and by next week it's going to hit 15°C. What is winter coming to?!?!
