We have now set the record for the snowiest December in the history or record keeping in NH. That doesn't make me, hater of the cold wet stuff, happy. Oh sure, I like to look at it. It's pretty, especially when the sun is shining (which is hasn't in like.. forever!) on it... and it makes the grey dreary landscape look nice and fresh. But enough is enough. We've gotten over 4 feet this month (we passed the record already, but they keep the record in another part of the state) and quite frankly if it doesn't snow again all winter, I will be more than happy, as winter just started last week.
Sadly, we are due for another storm tomorrow afternoon. Between 2-7. Which means not only do I have to go out and shovel, it will be in the dark. I have no ideas where I will put another 6-10 inches of snow. I might have to start mailing it off to people in warm places. Drop me a note if you'd like some.So before I go off to celebrate in the festivities (which have changed, due to Ms. Thang being sick and The Boy having the sneezes/runny nose (might as well be the bubonic plague), I leave you the run down of the photos. The top one is the pine trees in the back yard. I hate those trees, but they look purty and regal all covered with snow. The second one is the porch/walk/side yard. Notice the pile of snow to the left of the door. Let's just say it sucked and move on shall we? I don't know if you can tell (might have to click it bigger).. but the snow has filled in the yard inside the fence. My garland/lights might be out there until spring. And the last photo, is the front yard looking toward the town common. My little gate is almost buried, but due to the high snow pack, I can reach the bird feeders without a chair to stand on. BooYah!
