Just For You

It seemed it would never stop coming down~
and sideways, too!
So, I thought I'd share more of our morning!
I know, this is rare for me, to post twice in a day,
but, it kept coming, just for you.
Besides, I get so excited to see so much fresh snow
so I simply must show you how clean the world around
me looks today.
After all of these months with little snow,
we finally got what we were asking for.
The Lord just knows.
He knew we needed some moisture.
He sure has a sense of humor.
As gorgeous as what the clean slate looks,
it's heavy, wet, snowman stuff.
There are 3 cross-boards on this fence.
Yes, we got all that within the early morning til about 10 a.m.

Click on this next picture of the driveway.
Can you see where Bill drove out a few hours ago?
Somewhere under that white stuff is Andy's car.
There goes the dump plow adding salt to the road at the same time.

Andy got stuck first thing this morning, taking a vacation day so
I put him to work on the tractor to push a path. Boys like big toys.
It took 3 hours to plow the U-drive around the house.
Click this photo and you will see the mail did not go thru today.
Not for us, not for anyone.
I love this birdhouse. I'm so glad the robins were still
basking in the sun much further south.

Nice drift curling off the woodshed.
Now I was just thinking~~~wouldn't this Hydrangea make a great
Gnome Home?
There are frozen fingers everywhere,
some even touching the ground.
Even white on white has it's appeal.
You can understand how blustery this blizzard was
when the snow is even on the inside branches and the trunks.
Now, this is more like what we're used to,
but by Dec. and always in late Feb. and March.
In other words, we know when to ' hunker down '
for the Big One.
Our house is somewhere behind the trees and the snow piles.
We even have plenty of ice on the driveway under the snow.
Ahhhh, late winter, early spring, we are survivors.
But this? This we never like to see.
Looks like double trouble to me.
Icy roof~~~~has been giving us grief, but
we think we have finally found a solution.
That's another story.

Hope you didn't get any of this,
unless, of course, you too, needed the moisture.
You can thank God for that. He's such a kidder.

When Bill gets home from work,
we will attempt to find the cabin under its blanket.
It's been a pleasure.

WOW that's a lot of snow. We never ha more than a dusting this year. Which is really unusual for us. Poor Missouri had tornado last night. Lots of damage southwest of us.
Hope you keep electricity!

Lovely shots, Dar. I really love the barn.

Helen said...

It looks beautiful but cold. Helen

Gail said...

Beautiful but glad it's you! We need the moisture but I prefer the rain.

Jean said...

Beautiful! thanks for sharing your pictures with us. It looks so white and clean. I've never seen this much snow. Just beautiful. Jean

Paula said...

So beautiful! John's sister in Alaska was complaining about their roof today on the phone. My girls were stranded in Aspen, Colorado after skiing for a few days and here we had summer today.

Brrrrrrrrr, today I am glad to be in Arizona. I did miss the storm, but not the cleanup. Our daughter is going to the cabin this weekend, she'll have to deal with it. (hehe)

Shug said...

Wow...that is some snow! I can not imagine having that much snow..I do think it is gorgeous...
Here I am, wearing flip flops and debating as to whether or not I need some air...
Y'all stay safe.

We got dumped on big time too! And no mail even in town. School was called off yesterday AND today. Now it's kind of a drizzle-snow coming down - not good! Our branches are bowing to the ground again, those trees are so resilient it amazes me. They call it a winter wonderland but what I'm wondering about is why did we choose to live here. LOL
'love & hugs from afar'

We've had our share of snow but not as much as you! We too need all the moisture we can get as the lakes are disappearing around here.
