The snow has hit Maine. I’ve been looking at the weather reports and have been watching the storm travel from out West. I think it began here around 11 last night.
So far, we have about ten and a half inches. I used a big wooden paint stirrer to find the exact depth and then measured my mark with a ruler. I took the measurement in the middle of the front yard, so it’s fairly accurate.
They say the snow is supposed to stop around 3 this afternoon. At the rate it’s falling now, that should give us at least a few more inches. I’d wager we end up with a total around 12 or 13 after it’s said and done. Not bad for the first real storm.
I ventured outside this morning to take some snow off the roof. We have a really long roof rake to help out with this. Unfortunately, my ladder is still sitting in Laura’s mother’s garage, so I can’t really get to very much material. Either way, it was fun to get all dressed up in my snow gear. I even took a mental note. My note was that I need real snow boots. My “St. Johns Bay” boots that I’ve had forever allowed my toes to freeze within minutes. I just took a look on Amazon.com for some Winter boots and apparently, “Baffin” is the brand to go with. They have many arctic temperature boots to choose from, so I’ll look around at them more later.
Anyway, Laura was able to take some pictures of me while I was outside roof raking. Let me know what you think of the them.
