Snow



We awoke to a heavy overnight snowfall.  This is the view from our kitchen window.


There was far more than forecast and it has been a major operation trying to dig ourselves out.  That bump is my car!  You can just make out the mirror and the aerial.



Beneath this mound of snow is a minivan.  The main problem with trying to dig out is that there is nowhere to put all of the snow until the road has been ploughed.


The snow on the drive was almost knee deep.  Just trying to walk was a challenge.


The back garden covered with a heavy blanket of snow.


The view of our street from the verandah of our house.  A neighbour was snow blowing in the distance.


The front garden with the maple tree deep in snow.  


The digging has continued for much of the day.  The hardest bit is digging by hand, but much of the area around the vehicles and the entrances to the house is inaccessible with our little plough.

A Radox bath was much needed after all of this effort.  I'm just hoping that there will not be another significant snowfall any time soon.
