Spring Snow 2012: day 2

Spring Snow 2012 Continued!

Early afternoon on Wednesday I took a 2 mile loop with Moby. Very wet snow but a nice walk.

Nearing the boardwalk

Our house before the extra snow.

The snow kept falling for the entire day and increased after 6pm during our second walk. Absolutely beautiful!

Thursday morning: Our power went out around 12:20am and didn’t return until 12:15pm. I did one snow measurement at 5pm Wednesday and it was still at 3″. Thirteen hours later, it had doubled to 6″.

Deck railing measurement.

Thursday morning 6:30am.

Back yard Juniper bushes covered.

The daffodils are just opening in a pot on the back deck. They originally were planted by my mother back in September 2009, before her death. I love to see them come up!

Since we didn’t have power I got to uncover the gas grill to heat water for coffee & tea. At noon, I heated up soup and found the heat on when I got inside. Nice to have a warm house again!

Thanks for checking in!

  1. Yes, yes today at 4:00pm. Thank goodness the sun was here to usher it in. Of course my iphone shows snowflakes again this weekend. Considering I have a 10k in the morning I’m hoping it’s wrong! Beautiful pictures!

    1. I think your iphone app is wrong. All the weather reports I see just say rain. Congrats on reaching Spring Break!!!
