I'm hoping all you friends that endured the blizzard, Jonas, are safe and well as we all recover from our storm. There have been various accumulations recorded up and down the east coast. As well as we can tell, we have at least 20 inches of snow. There are drifts that measure much more than that! As our record I wanted to post a few photos for us. If you are sick of looking at snow you are welcome to move on to another blog.
The storm began around 12:30 pm Friday with just light snow falling. Within an hour the snow began in earnest! In a couple of hours we had a snow covered patio.
Snow continued through the evening and into Saturday and by nightfall we really had some snow!
The sun was shining so lovely on the fresh fallen snow this morning!
During the storm the snow was so beautiful, but visibility was limited.
Before the storm we made sure the feeders were full of seed for the birds.
The storm was passing to the north and the full wolf moon was beginning to show her beautiful face!
The boxwoods are feeling the weight of the snow, even though it was a very dry powdery one!
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
There is something about a snowstorm that brings us into the quiet of our homes. Simple pleasures to quiet our thoughts and our minds.
