Aftermath of a snow day.

 Well, the promised heavy snow fall arrived, so I decided to include a photo that's from a similar angle to the one from Tuesday. We got about 14" of snow, which is barely more than the valley below us which is unusual. Most of the time we get a crazy amount of snow in relation, so it was nice to have a fairly average amount to deal with. The only wrinkle was that I broke my first shearing pin on the snow blower! I haven't replaced the pin yet because I finished up without it, and actually only noticed due to a friend seeing down the mouth of the monster and seeing it wasn't all spinning.

More snow here, and even more on the way. Spring planning.

After a brief warm up, we've got snow again. More is on the way tomorrow so Thursday we'll be able to show more deep snow beauty instead of the couple inches of making the trees pretty, and the roads terrible that we got yesterday. Even with the snow coming, it feels like spring is on the way. The smell of the air in particular smells different even though the temperatures aren't significantly different. It's something I've been peripherally aware of in the past but am much more aware of now.
