This morning heavy wet snow was falling. Those big clumps of snowflakes add up fast. Throughout the day, the snow danced on the wind sometimes looking like it was going horizontal and not falling at all.
It became obvious the the let-it-melt method was not going to cut it this time. It took considerable time for us to get together the long underwear, winter hat, snow pants, insulated gloves and waterproof jacket necessary for comfortable snow removal. It has been a long time since I have seen Ed head outside wearing that many layers of clothing. He reminded me of the kid in A Christmas Story! Ed enjoys being out there moving the snow where he wants it to be. Today he plowed some leaves and mud as well since the driveway is not yet frozen. He only appears in one picture because by the time I saw him coming and got the camera, he was already headed out of sight.
I guess it seems like we are back at the beginning, but the snow no longer obscures the ridge in the distance. The snow is once again building up on the ramp. It will be dark soon. Tomorrow we hope to go out. It could be a bit of an adventure!
