Ice

 

The back and forth of temperature and precipitation type has brought a solidness to the snow cover.  I hit one drift with a regular shovel and the shovel bounced back.  Hard as can be it was.  The freezing rain cover and the melting periods have left us coated.  Today light snow is coating it all in fluff.

Snow and Wind

 

While the snow totals have not been that great, the piling of it all looks like this has been dump city.  The snow seems deep and the roof had to be cleared.  Piles are along side the roads to town.  The wind picks up from time to time and watches, advisories, and alerts are issued.   Cold is the word.

Tonight is to be another –30F night or so.  West of us they had a blizzard without snow falling.  Just had the wind blowing old snow.

We have had to shovel the area out the front door so the dog has a place to go.  In and out quickly is the rule right now.

Storm-Light

 

A sunny day today with a temperature near zero.  The storm mostly missed us leaving about , maybe, 3.5 inches in a two part dump.  The old icy layer is still there.
