Yesterday was another long day of falling snow. I managed to do some shoveling when it slowed down just before dark. Today was the real shovel day though. I even had to go down to the bottom of the hill and dig out our mailbox. While we appreciate the hardworking folks that plow our road and driveway, we wish they’d take a little bit of care with the mailbox. Also dug out the porch, the paths and the snow that fell from the shop roof, leaving just a narrow walkway to get to the shop and greenhouse. Who needs a gym with all this snow? Luna and I enjoyed a slow walk too.

 

Even though we use this path almost daily, it nearly disapeared with the recent snow

The lumps are bitterbrush that the mule deer need to reach for winter forage

And what’s this tiny thing?

Luna is tired out walking on the trail. She no longer leaps and plays in the soft snow.

There is its top, covered by last night’s plowing

This tree has us worried. It is leaning over our road.

Snow weighs heavily on the fiber. It vibrates with the weight.

Lots of icicles
