Comments on: Snowy Hills and Valleys The wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. -- Mary Oliver Wed, 09 Sep 2015 20:33:37 +0000 hourly 1 By: Mardé Thu, 21 Feb 2008 01:32:52 +0000 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.

I like the first picture~if you crop out the building it turns into a fascinating dreamscape.

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.

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.

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:

By: Annette Mon, 18 Feb 2008 00:24:51 +0000 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.

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.

By: Mardé Sun, 17 Feb 2008 02:44:28 +0000 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. 😀

By: geologyjoe Sun, 17 Feb 2008 01:16:58 +0000 I started shoveling off the roof tonight. tommrow i will try and finish it. no need risking a collapsed roof. 😕
