After the Storm

It is the day after the storm.  And what a beautiful day it is!

As the sun rose over the cul-de-sac,

It began to shine its warm light over the smooth snow, and tops of the plants tall enough to peek out over their cover of white.

There is not a cloud in the sky.

But yesterday was another matter..

We confronted by a wall of snow when we started cleaning out the driveway just before noon.

This was perhaps the only time I stopped working before the job was complete.

When we came back later in the evening to complete the job, there was probably another foot of snow on the ground when we started.

We finally got the job done after the sun had set.

We will still have some clean-up activity today.  It will probably be a day or two before the snow plows make it to our cul-de-sac and clear the roads so that we can get out of the community.  They will probably leave a wall of snow in front of our driveway that we will have to breach in order to break free.

This was the amount of snow that collected on the table in the patio yesterday evening.

Lets see what adventures are in store for us today!
