We are sitting here in the midst of our latest snow storm. I just heard about this one a few days ago. Unbeknownst to me, the storm has been building for some time and as of right now, I’d say we have about 8 inches on the ground.
I was out shoveling a while ago. I began with the end of the driveway near the road and by the time I finished the path to the front door, at least another 2 inches had fallen where I started. I’ll have to head out again soon. I like to shovel in layers to avoid the difficulty of doing it all at once. I will tell you this though, the snow is coming down very hard and it’s really fun to be outside. I stood and chatted with a neighbor up the road for about a half hour while I was out there. You should have seen what fell as we were talking.
I want to quickly mention something before I go ahead and post today’s pictures. If you remember back to an earlier post of mine, I mentioned that we saw what I thought was a moose rub on one (actually a few) of the trees along the trail. I suggested that it may have been a moose, a deer or a woodpecker. Well, according to the neighbor up the road, we do indeed have moose in the neighborhood. He found a large moose rack just the other day. He said the tracks of a moose are huge. I asked if they look like deer tracks, but larger. He confirmed in the positive.
Anyway, the snowy photos below were taken by yours truly. The woodpecker and orange cat pictures were taken by Laura. Enjoy.
