And Now, Folks…..A Really Big Snow

As I mentioned before, our area doesn’t get very much snow. A couple of inches is enough to throw most of us into a tailspin, literally.

The day after Christmas, we had the third heaviest snowfall in history.  I don’t know the exact amount, but we’re hearing around 14 inches.

It began snowing Christmas evening. The next morning, Motor Man and I ventured out very early.  This was our street as we were returning home.

Our yard looked like this by 8 a.m.

You may recall the photo I used for my Christmas post.

Here’s the same view, taken the next day. A layer of snow adds a little something, don’t you think?

During the afternoon, we had near-blizzard conditions. This is our yard, taken from the front porch.  At this point, I wasn’t leaving the house.

And our old cedar tree, during the worst of the storm, taken from the side door of the garage.

I took this from just inside the garage. Even though I didn’t want to be out in the storm, I did want to get pictures, so I made good use of the shelter the porch and garage provided.

Tomorrow, I’ll have pictures of our surrounding area, taken the “day after”, once the snow stopped and we were no longer snowbound.

  1. Wow, we got 4 ft. two years ago and 6` last year. Then before Thanksgiving we got a few inches this year, I am sorry for you even though it is pretty. I hope motorman doesn’t have to work in it. I took photos of ours two years ago and hope we don’t get it again this winter even though it is suppose to be 20` this week one day. I just do what i have to and nothing more which is take care of my dear dairy cows and chickens. They are my animal loves.

  2. I’m sorry that was 6 degrees last year not 6ft. of snow. Forgive me please.

  3. Snowbound is right! I know the feeling, but it’s a better feeling when you’re snowbound at home … The pic of the old cedar is my favorite …

  4. Looks awfully cold in those pictures.

    I am not a snow person but I have to admit this was a beautiful snow but I am ready for it to be gone. I had to go back to work today and getting there was not fun. Be safe everyone.

  6. Oh my gosh, these pictures are amazing!!
    I am so glad you found my blog… cuz now I’ve found yours!
    Not many know about the Chicago nurses that were murdered many years ago.
    Sounds like we have lots more in common!
    I sure miss the winters in Wisconsin. Thanks for posting your stunning images.
