Snowed In, March

Mother Nature won this one bigtime. Ed came in late last night, exhausted, his plow broken with the pieces missing in the snow. It's the day after the storm and this is where he starts.

It's a good thing a shovel has always fit Ed's hand so well!

The birds were waiting including three unhappy looking tricolor blackbirds. Ed stopped shoveling long enough to slog through the knee deep snow and fill the feeders.

I ventured out the shoveled path to take some pictures of the snow. Our roof has a new wave!

I surprised myself.Under these conditions, I didn't think I would see this snow as beautiful, but I was wrong.

Here we have the answer to an age old question. "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?" It does, a loud one even from inside the house.

We are hoping that Rick or George will come by and be able to plow the driveway. In the meantime if Ed is going to keep shoveling , he'll need lunch.

PS. Later in the afternoon the sun came out, and I watched the bald eagle circle over Amy's meadow rising higher and higher until he was a tiny speck against the blue sky. George stopped by and helped to get the driveway so that we could get out, but the soft gravel, and snow have left the driveway a bit of a mess.

Well the snow is normal and nature goes as she ought. I guess. I'm ready for spring as I watch the snow falling right now.
