It’s Only March

Even the moon wanted a peek at the beauty below. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2017.

Earlier this morning I went out to clean up the driveway. It was 12°F and I needed to rearrange some of the 15 1/2″ inches of fresh snow that fell yesterday. It only took a little more than two hours. I did snowblow for more than 1 mile, and I’ll have to do some more work on it later. But the cars are cleared and the driveway is driveable, more or less. This time of the year, the sun is higher in the sky so that should help my effort.

Honestly, I do enjoy the cool fresh air and the workout that is built into the effort. It has been a beautiful morning.

The work was much prettier than it looks on this map. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2017.

Winter Week

After a week of good old-fashioned winter weather, things are looking a little better around here. We had 31.5″ of snow in the last 7 days. Finally, a week of winter, to help rescue us from another weak winter. I am thinking I will be up on the roof this week. #ILoveWinter.

This section of our driveway gets almost no sun, and usually thaws sometime in April. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2017.

December Snow

There’s something beautiful about snowfall. Not to mention the silencing effect of the countless flakes. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2016.

24 Hours in February

Thursday I was at my Mom and Dad’s house and I was struck by the greenery of the yard, specifically because it was so green, on February 4th here in New Hampshire. The scene was quite abnormal for this time of winter here in the Northeast. The temperature at the time was somewhere around 54°F, which was also an anomaly.

Way too green and warm for southern NH on Feb. 4th.

Then, on Friday we received 6.5″ of snow at my house. There were communities around us that received anywhere from 5″ to 9″ of snow on Friday. Many schools were closed, and just like that, in 24 hours it felt like winter again.

Friday morning the snow was falling at a pretty good clip. The snow, in all of it's purity, renews all it covers.

As I put this piece together and post it to my blog, on Monday, the 8th of February, it is snowing again in southern NH. It’s a cold, snowy day, and the temperature (with wind) feels like 8°F. We are still some 45″ of snow shy of our normal winter average, and I doubt we will hit the average or even get close. Then again, you never know what is in store for us the rest of this winter…and beyond.

By late afternoon the sun made an appearance so we could see it set. The bright, yellowish glow on the white coated trees was a sight to see.
