Now THIS is winter!

THIS is winter! Yahoo!! Left is a shot out the back door, facing to the North. We got about 8" yesterday and another 2-3 so it would appear, overnight.

Below is the shot out the front door, to the south, showing the tracks where K walked out to meet me and drive the Subaru in. I was concerned the snow was drifted deeply enough that it would have to be "subaru plowed" but apparently I was wrong.
There was one place where he had to back up and take another try at it. After I write my words and this blog this morning and get another cup of coffee, it will be time for me and the shovel, as there is a fine mist of snow still coming down and predictions for more small bits the next few days.

And then, tomorrow, I will go out and play a bit, honest!

Looking at those pictures I can only think...I'm dreading it. We haven't had much snow for this time of year but there's no doubt that it will come, and feet of it...sigh!

I'm sorry you do not enjoy it.

I do. I guess that is why I keep resisting getting a plow guy. As long as I CAN get myself in and out with the shovel I want to. I am excited about getting my snowshoes on and tramping the perimeter today, later...

I think it is interesting... even my daughter who cannot really take the cold (she had a good dose of hypothermia when a teen) loves the snow.
