So, how many Chickadees do You see?
This photo was taken as I am standing eye level to the snowbank in our yard....I'm 5'3" tall, if that gives you an idea of how much snow that's piling up...this is the weekend the little boys and their Dad plan to dig a snow tunnel.
As everything is either brown or white around us, the transparency of the icicles hanging from the soffits is rather pretty., if ice can be pretty.
Click on the photos to get a closer look at the length of some of these icicles. The longest one in front of the door is nearly 4 ft. long.
The ice is piling up on the roof edges, adding a great deal of stress. When we have a day above 32F degrees, it piles higher so Bill has to get on the roof, shovel what snow and ice has accumulated so we don't end up with roof damage.
More double trouble, two stories high.
The excess weight of the ice may be cool to look at but very dangerous to be under......
when it all comes sliding down. The force and weight could kill if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The storage shed with the metal roof already has a curl starting.
Look out below!!!!
The rainbow around the moon indicates more scattered snowshowers with rays of sunlight throughout the day.
Maybe it also means the days are starting to warm....fingers crossed~
But, in the meantime, it makes for a spectacular show of
Our patience will pay off in the end. For now, we will continue to fill our remaining winter days with thoughts of our garden plans. Mine are ambitious at the moment but once my muscles get involve, I will relax into planting my garden as,
Stay warm if you're cold and
cool off if you're warm. I can always send you
snow and ice.
So~~~how many Chickadees did you see?
