This time the weather forecasters got it right as they told us we'd be getting heavy snow making driving a nightmare. It started snowing early in the morning and when it got dark 10 hours later it was still snowing. Altogether about a foot I think, and it's snowing again this morning. If the world outside was white before it's really white now!
Taking pictures to show the depth of freshly fallen snow is notoriously difficult unless you can find something that will provide contrast in the snow. Here you can probably see the shaded foot of snow on the deck just because of that contrast.
It's actually nice to have some proper winter finally, 'cause I know we have to endure at least some of this snowy weather that makes getting out in a wheelchair so difficult. Sooner we get it over with the better! And it gives our friendly neighbours a chance to demonstrate their willingness to help. Last night one neighbour came and blew out our driveway halfway through the storm so our caregiver could get in (never mind that he never got here because they hadn't plowed the roads, we were ready for him)! And this morning another neighbour came and blew a path up our driveway since our own snowblowing man hadn't got here yet. Small town friendliness.
