My neighbor informs us: Given the amount of snow we got...if you shoveled a driveway 10 ft wide by 45 ft long - you would have lifted 2 TONS of snow!!
Wow -- I'm more of a superhero than I thought! Our driveway is almost exactly that. Of course, the kids and husband helped, so I guess I'm only responsible for about a ton... ha ha Look at the driveway here -- we moved a LOT of snow! And notice the welcome sign, almost buried! That's not from shoveled snow -- it was buried that deep when we first went out!
Early this morning one of the snow plows got stuck on our street. The second plow was trying to pull him out. I loaned them a snow shovel so both of them could dig the tires out and my neighbor brought them some power-drinks. Thus, the top of OUR drives got cleared out VERY nicely! It pays to be kind!
The look of surprise on the face of this squirrel when he tried to walk across the top of the snow was priceless. The snootful of snow he got stayed while he scavenged below the feeder. Does that make him a bottom feeder?
The trees were so laden with snow that some were bent over with their tops touching the ground. This is a holly.
This huge pine tree looks like an excessively ornamented Victorian matron.
This snow cave is actually a burning bush tree that needs to come out in the spring (it's an invasive species). Maybe after this snowfall it will be grateful to go!
