Snowpocalypse 2011

Wednesday, January 12, 2011. We all stayed home. Chris is still recovering from walking pneumonia, and I am still under doctor's orders to do no heavy work, so we asked a neighbor to clear our driveway. But for most of the day, were were well and truly snowed in.

More than a foot of snow accumulated on the railings.

The branches were so loaded with the sticky snow that you couldn't see into the woods.

Looks like some sort of hunched creature now, doesn't it?

Gabe's Garden, the view from the front door.

Chris' veggie garden.

Check out the fence. Chris had to go dig out the Mousetrap. It was squashed under the weight of the snow, but sprang right back up.

I took these pictures from the windows. I just don't have the energy to be slogging around through knee-deep snow right now.

It's good hibernating weather. Poor crow.

The plows built us some magnificent piles. Gabe would run to the window to watch them work.

I considered opening the door and dipping him into the snow, but he wouldn't have appreciated it. Instead, I brought a bowl of snow inside for him to eat.

My poor shrubs are getting squashed, but I don't have the energy to shake them free of snow. Oh well - they look so pretty like this anyhow.
