Snowy Hills and Valleys

Here’s a picture looking out of a window in our house onto the driveway and road in the distance. See the hills and valleys of fields of snow! The latest storm, ending as it did with freezing rain, polished the snow fields and now in the bright sun they glisten nicely.

Here’s a shot looking at the house from the end of the driveway. The window from which I took the previous shot, suggested by Cynthia, is to the left of the door. Dramatic?

I wonder what the rain and 47 degree temperature predicted for Monday will do to the piles?

    That’s right, Joe, the god’s should give you time to survive the night and finish shoveling the roof in the morning. Good to take a rest. 😀

    Hi Mardé,
    How are you doing ?
    I sincereley hope that you and your wife are able to do your most important errends.
    on our side, still no snow. Just a lovely sunny and crisp weather(30 to lower 40 degree range).

    Have a great Sunday and take care.

    Hi Marde,
    Sure is beautiful!!! We have lots of ice, but not as much snow. Ended up with 4 inches of water in the basement, but that is gone today.

    Hi Barbara,
    That sounds like nice crisp weather alright, almost cold in fact, but at least the sun’s out where you are. Yes, we’re able to do our errands but the driving can be treacherous at times.
    Take care, and you have a great day — that’ll be tomorrow for you, your being perhaps six hours ahead of us here.

    Yes, the snow is beautiful, Annette, but it’s cold and hard — a three or four inch layer of icy stuff on top but not enough to support my weight. Our basements will be threatened with water this year, although we’ve never had any yet — in about eight years. Good luck in the coming spring. Spring? What’s that? :roll:

    Looks absolutely beautiful – real Christmas card stuff. I love looking at your photos.
    Yes, I love looking at them, but I certainly wouldn’t like living with all that snow! The work required to keep your roof safe and your drive cleared must be phenomenal!
    Be safe and warm.

    Hi Mererid! I’m glad you like my photos. I don’t have as many nice ones as you do. But yes, the snow is lovely to look at but not so lovely to move around in! :sad: We have a steep roof and haven’t shoveled the snow off, hoping that we’ll be OK. Keeping the drive clear would be practically impossible for us if we didn’t have our trusty snow-thrower. Our son Nat (or nash as he calls himself) fixed the snow-thrower before the big storms came, and that has saved us! He just happened to be up here on the right weekend. Today is a cold one, about 12 on Fahrenheit scale, or about -11C.

    Reminds me of the UP!
    I like the first picture~if you crop out the building it turns into a fascinating dreamscape.

    The UP? Upper Purgatory? Utter Pandemonium?

    Yes, cropping out the building wall, it could be a surreal dreamscape with those those shadowy white structures and strange circular object in the distance. Not sure what that is.
