I wrote yesterday about the blizzard that we were expecting. It is now the morning of the next day. We are now more than half way through the storm and have received more than a foot of snow. The snowfall is only expected to taper down later in the day.
It was quite pretty outside last night. It looked very peaceful in spite of the snow coming down, or perhaps because of it.
This morning we awakened to the wind and the following sights.
The night was quieter than I expected. In the past, under similar conditions, we have awakened to the sounds of the house reacting to the storm, and to the sound of the wind whistling into the home through unsealed cracks in the window sides. That has not happened this time, perhaps due to the work we had done this summer sealing up the windows.
Our neighbors have already started clearing their driveways. Perhaps it is time for us to start.
