This is a title I found in my draft file. A blog post started and never written. Today with 20 inches of snow outside my window I thought I should finish it.
All 20 inches of this snow has arrived in the last few weeks and there is more to come according to the weekly forecast. As I look out the window the raised beds have been lost in the snow. There is a little bit of a mound to tell where they are but not much. The fence that was 2 1/2 to 3 feet high, that is protecting plants, is now lost in a drift of snow as well.
The snow continues to fall today in a sleet like manner. The temperature has risen so the polar vortex has moved on for now. This snow, although white like this weekend, is heavy with water and makes shoveling a scare thing for those of us who are older and have dealt with heart issues.
Still with that said – the trees branches are covered in long sweeping strips of snow. The evergreens are bowing down to the earth with the weight of beauty on each bough. There are snow sculptures where ever you look. There are sparkles and twinkles bouncing off the individual flakes. The neighbors who have been hidden in their homes are out shoveling, snow blowing and chatting. Where ever there is a slight hill it is now a sledding hill for young and old.
(Sorry photos are not the best but I refuse to bundle back up and go out there to get my more artful pictures. These are taken from my doorways. Knee deep snow is getting old really fast.)
