Two feet and counting....

Two feet so far with drifts much deeper. I can't believe we still have power.
The storm is not supposed to stop brewing until around 8pm tonight.
Here are a couple of pics from this morning....

No one will be coming up these steps anytime soon!

Part of the lower deck looking back toward the steps in the above photo.

A path shoveled from the lower deck to the middle and upper decks to get to the condenser that is just on the other side of the privacy fencing.
Nuala's not too sure about this much snow!

Outside of my office sliding door looking onto the lower deck.
We may be digging out of this for days to come. I'm off to give the girls water and some snacks.
We dug a path about 11pm last night to check on them and they were all snuggled in for the night - all safe on their roosts.
Have a safe weekend everyone and mind your backs.


  1. goodness... now that is a snowstorm... stay safe and warm...

  2. Wow! How's the view from your kitchen now, huh?

    Would you believe it was 68 and sunny yesterday, here in Oregon? We went for a walk in the park and I got hot enough to take off my sweatshirt, just as my husband was saying, "this is ridiculous!" at the warmth.

    I think you guys are getting part of our winter!

  3. Wow! Put those thoughts of Spring aside for a while. It looks lovely but I know it means lots of work and inconvenience for you.
    Keep warm

  4. Paula - The view from my kitchen is blocked by snow on the porch railing! I would be happy to send some "winter" your way, if you would like! But, no complaints. We are safe and warm and haven't lost power. I have lemon ginger chicken roasting in the oven and plenty of wine....

    Helen - Ah, I can't let go of Spring. Knowing Spring is coming helps me deal with all the aches and pains of shoveling! But, I must confess, we have a hot tub to help ease the aches too!

  5. I'm sure you a tired of it, but it is so pretty. Of course, this is coming from someone that doesn't have to shovel snow.
