Snow, Glorious Snow!
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:33:46 PM »
Here at the far, upper, left-hand corner of the contiguous United States, we are finally having some winter.
There's been snow, on and off, for the past three days, and it looks as if there'll be about three more days of it.
We'll stay home, thank you.



Right now, there's only approximately four inches of white loveliness, but more is falling as I write this.
Last night, it was gorgeous ski-able powder, but today it's big, fat, sledding-snow flakes.


Our island's power went out on Saturday night, as a tree fell on the main feed lines. It was off until late Sunday morning.
But now everything is working.


We have lots of wood stacked, right by our kitchen door.
So far, we needed to run both stoves only to make up for the power-out, for about a half-day.
Our big living-room stove is doing very well at keeping us toasty-warm.


And, oh, it's so beautiful outside!

Yeap! we had some down here in Northern California but it was only enough to be there in the morning. The deck had about an inch but as the sun came out it disappeared.
The front grass, I don't call it a lawn cause it came there by itself, had some and my driveway has enough to cover the rock and look white for a couple of hours.
The extra stash of dry oak in the wood shed, my emergency stash, came in handy for a couple of days when it got cold . . . .
Anything below 70° I consider that cold . . . . .
But here we are back with blue sky and drizzling rain on and off . . . . .
Snows all gone . . . . .

I am ready for spring (and have been since November).

Not much snow yet, just plenty of freezing fog at times and plenty cold.

Well, it's snowing again.
There's about a half-inch sticking on the ground, which is weird because the air temperature is above 35°F.

But, weird or not, it's beautiful to look at.

We get a nice 3 to 6 inch snow and then the blankety-blank wind come up and blows it all away or most generally piles it up in drifts.
