The Days Between

A winter storm arrived on Sunday morning.  In less than three hours, there was already a significant accumulation of snow, which continued to fall on Monday.  We set about digging ourselves out.

The snow on our side deck was quite deep.

Although this photo does not give a good perspective, it took about twenty minutes just to clear my car of the accumulated snow.

The house looks lie it did when we first viewed it last winter, although there is a lot more snow in the garden.

The plough had been down our street a couple of times, so the road was fairly clear and we were surprised when they came round to empty the green bins!

I love the beauty of the trees in winter, devoid of leave and dusted with snow.  After an hour of digging, I was ready to head indoors to dry out.  Thankfully, we have a small plough to tackle the larger part of the drive and only have to dig out the entrances and less accessible areas.

There is more snow in the forecast during the next few days, so we may not be finished yet.


  1. The snow does look very beautiful but not so much if you have to get out and about in it. We just have unusually warm weather here with lots and lots of rain. Very strange. Just popping by to say thank you for visiting and leaving comments this year and I look forward to visiting you here in 2016. Happy New Year to you and yours:)

  2. Hi, Marie! Slowly emerging from jet lag fog and Christmas glow... And so the snow... and a new year... We've had some snow this Year Year weekend--thankfully not too, too much. ;) Wishing you & yours all the VERY best in 2016 and more... ((HUGS))
