The white stuff

It snowed off and on all day yesterday and even the birds took to higher ground. They perched on wires, fences, and tree branches to watched the white fluffy love from above make its way to the ground. A few of the birds liked the snow and played in it.

Never heard how much snow we got but do know I was out a few times pushing the snow blower and a shovel. For a change it was a light snow so the work wasn’t hard, just aggravating. The snow would quit falling and when done the driveway, alley, and front walks were down to bare pavement.

So I’d watch some of the Daytona 500 until the snow started again and my gear went back on to remove it. When the snow falls there is usually an eerie quiet that is only broken by the sound of snow blowers and shovels scraping bare pavement. Even the birds just looked on in silence.

The last time out was after sunset so I decided to do one more pass and leave the inch of snow that fell later until today. Since I knew the moon would be out I looked to the Heavens only to see a blanket of white covered the sky. It looked like even the sun couldn’t penetrate the snow.

Now I’m getting ready to go back out and shovel again. With the sun shining today it should be a piece of cake. Plus I can see what I’m doing. To those who dislike winter and the snow that sometimes falls I will say it’s only about 3 weeks until Spring.

So enjoy our Monday as it means we’re one day closer to Spring. Now I need coffee and bacon before going out.
Comments are always welcome.

  1. We dont experience snow here in SA as you do. As beautiful as it is, i cant see myself shovelling snow. I do have sympathy for wildlife.

    I hope you’re out and enjoying the super snow moon. They could turn off all the street lights and let the moon light the town tonight it’s so beautiful.

    Sunshiny SA, Kavitha,
    shoveling show is a small price to pay to live in the Mid-West.

    Mamabear,
    I took a few pictures last night because the snow tonight won’t be
    good for watching. It sure was bright.

    More nice pic’s as always. I wish I had a good camera like you do so I could get pic’s of the moon. I think they said there’s going to be one more super moon this year, but idk when. Yes that moon was super bright and I was lucky to not have any cloud cover. Couldn’t see a thing last night not even stars~that’s the price I pay for living in a valley surrounded by lights. I miss the times of living out in the sticks where the stars shined brightly. Oh well maybe when I get moved one of these days I’ll pick a place out in the sticks LOL

    Mamabear,
    thank you. We also get some light from living in the city but I know of a couple dark spots that work well for moon pictures. I heard the Snow Moon was to be the biggest and brightest of the year but will look to see if we’ll have another super moon. I’d like to live in the country myself by my city wife won’t allow it.
