Pictures from a snowstorm

It's snowing at a rate of about three inches an hour--a ruler we have on our porch just topped 14 inches.

Our road isn't plowed yet:

Can you make out the mail truck?

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep

Pickup truck driver clears his windshield

In the time I've taken writing this, it's now at 15 inches.

ETA: 16 inches and still falling:

Ugh. "Observe the snow. It fornicates."

You nearly made me splort my tea :D

Sounds like Thor's bowling.

Wow! Those photos are both beautiful and ominous. I especially like the one with the little creek. We keep getting missed -- the forecast will say "5 to 8 inches" and then the next time I look it's *3 to 5" and then it's "<1 inch" and then it's "overcast." I don't really want to shovel a lot of snow, but am starting to worry about whether we are even getting enough moisture this winter and whether plants have enough cover from frost heaves.

But there is nothing like the light and the glint of fast-falling snow, and it's already February.

Don't you guys do yourselves a mischief moving all that stuff.

Now it's at 16 inches--I just added a picture.

Yeah, we're going to be very careful. My back and arms ain't what they used to be.

And I hear you on the worry about moisture! We've been in extreme drought here. This will help a bit.

Oh, WOW. I totally DO NOT recognize your street!

That's the view if you go to our driveway and face left, and also walk a little ways, (i.e., past our next-door neighbor)

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.

Oooooooh, yes!

When I move back to France, come winter, I will have a snow icon! :D
Feb. 9th, 2017 07:31 pm (UTC)
Yes you will, and I'll look forward to pictures of your French winters!

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep

I love the snow drifting onto the ice of the creek.

Thank you for these photos!

You're welcome--my pleasure. I hear you have about a foot or so in your area, too.

I wanted to say too how much I liked the phrase: lovely, dark and deep. And silent. Beautiful. A good excuse to hibernate if you can.
Feb. 9th, 2017 07:34 pm (UTC)
I have to quickly confess that the line comes from Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" (and then apologize if you already knew that--I just don't want you to think I'm that poetic all on my own ;-)

And yes, absolutely, re: hibernation!
Feb. 9th, 2017 09:02 pm (UTC)
Oh, lovely and cold and amazing! Yes, I could make out the mail-truck. :) Can you just stay at home today? For several days? I guess that all won't clear in a hurry.
Feb. 10th, 2017 01:10 am (UTC)
I did stay home--everything was closed (including several roads). Fortunately, I work from home! Thursdays I've been volunteering with some high school kids, but the school was closed, so I didn't have to go out at all--and I didn't, except for the walk and to shovel out the driveway.

oh how silently the wondrous gift is given..

; )

Dang! That's pretty, but...

Stay safe! (And warm.)
Feb. 10th, 2017 01:12 am (UTC)
Thank you--I'm well hunkered down, and cozy.
Feb. 10th, 2017 06:47 am (UTC)
wonderful pics! thanks so much for sharing.
Feb. 10th, 2017 11:20 am (UTC)
My pleasure!
Feb. 10th, 2017 08:11 am (UTC)
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Oh, those pictures are so gorgeous...

But do take care!
Feb. 10th, 2017 11:21 am (UTC)
Today it's bright and sunny--so sparkling white that when you come inside, everything is dim, takes a while for eyes to adjust. --Oh, and the roads are plowed now.
Feb. 10th, 2017 05:20 pm (UTC)
Thoe are very pleasing photos. Thanks for taking and posting them.
Feb. 11th, 2017 03:47 am (UTC)
I was really so happy to go out walking in the storm; I felt right at home. So I can honestly say, the pleasure was all mine!

If you are someplace safe in a snowstorm, it feels like a lovely little vacation from life. (Beautiful pics!)
Feb. 11th, 2017 03:48 am (UTC)
I agree! I like that snowstorms make us *stop*.
Feb. 10th, 2017 11:47 pm (UTC)

For a moment I thought the ruler was a tiny, tiny door. A faerie portal door.
