The blizzard of '16 is finally gone. I understand it has a name, and altho we have definitely been introduced, I don't know what it is. It matters not. S/he dumped a lot of white stuff in my neck of the woods.
|Friday morning - one hour of snow.|
|Sunday morning - all the snow.|
Look closely and you can see the pot.
The weather guessers are saying 12-14 inches fell, but with the drifting it's greatly more and greatly less depending on what the wind did and when. Fortunately, it's pretty dry and fluffy, but getting a foot or so off the driveway will be a challenge. We suddenly realize that we are the "elderly people" on our block - you know, the ones that the newsfolk have been warning people to check on. Would someone please check on our driveway? I have an appointment on Thursday!
|New Cryptomeria. It's 33 inches tall, but only 11 inches above the snow now.|
|The new veggie garden - that fence is 24 inches tall.|
|The view down the street. So far, two vehicles have been down the street,|
altho neither was a plow.
|Who can resist snow-covered nandina?|
|The 'Carolina Yellow Jessamine' is fully budded and ready to open....|
well, I hope it will open now.
It is pretty tho! and, we have plenty of food and wine. Let the hibernating continue.
