December 19, Front Door: (notice the tree out front)



February 6, 2010, Front Door:



I've stacked two rulers together. You can see the tip of the top one here. One of the rulers has about a half inch border without measurement. So, while I look for my 3rd ruler I lost in the snow last night, I estimate the deck at 27 - 28 inches. And it is still snowing with 6 - 10 more inches forecast for today. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow. Isn't it Awesome!?!



All I can say is WOW. I'll put up more pictures later. It is still pretty dark out.


UPDATE:


This is our neighbors behind us. You can see the snow stuck to the screens and siding.


Another neighbor.


The tree behind our house. Dare someone to stand under it and shake!


You can see the snow stuck on the siding on our house and our neighbor's house. That is the grill buried. We had a snowman over there (visible in the first picture) but he is buried now.


The backyard. The gate is half buried. Will be fun once it stops snowing.


I found this morning's Morning Prayer especially fitting: "Your deeds, O Lord, have made me glad; for the work of your hands I shout with joy. O Lord, how great are your works! How deep are your designs!" No kidding!


Hmm. Church on Sunday? I'm doubting it.


I think it wants to be friends.


Amazing isn't it? I've never seen so much snow at once in my whole life.


The branches have so much snow they look more like coral.


The other tree's branches are touching the bushes and are almost to the driveway.

  2. Awesome indeed. I've seen snow like that a couple of times since moving to MA. It will never cease to amaze me.

    Incidentally, I like your new blog design. Very warm.
