Aftermath of the Blizzard Yesterday

Yesterday, we had a huge snow storm. We received over a foot of snow where I lived. :D  I was so happy! Steven and I had to stay in our warm house together yesterday because everything was closed down. It was fun even thought we lost our internet connection for a while. We were fortunate to still have power as I'd heard that many places didn't.

 

Today, we went snow shoeing and shoveled off our drive way. Shoveling the driveway took forever, but it was great exercise and I loved seeing the mountains even though we stayed in our neighborhood while snowshoeing. My ankles got a good workout even though I wore ankle braces, hiking boots, and snow shoes.

 

This was our front yard.

 

 

This is the street outside of our house. Some of the snow was already starting to melt away.

 

 

 

We walked to a park/open space right by our house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steven took a picture of snow sparkle and icy snow.

 

 

 

 

Trees were weighed down by the snow and benches were covered in it.

 

 

 

Table Rock mountain behind or house was lovely.

 

 

I had to try falling into the soft, fluffy snow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shoveling the snow was the last thing we did. I'm glad we were able to clear a path for the car. We needed to get more groceries and it is supposed to rain tomorrow and snow again on Sat.

    My driveway is STILL full of snow – - – having to take it a bit at a time with this wet heavy spring snow. We got about 20 inches with drifts nearly as tall as I am. We’re due to get more snow this Saturday, too. Your photos are absolutely beautiful as always! One thing about being out in the snow with the sun shinning . . . sunglasses. I get snow blind without them. You guys are adorable!

      Thank you. We still have quite a bit of snow in our yard too, but I don’t believe that we got 20 inches. Wow. :O

      I love the snow even if it is a lot of work shoveling it off of the drive way.

          Cool. I had some daffodils bloom, but they were killed by the cold.

    Didn’t get quite as much down by me. I think just a little over a foot. Streets are all clear now—-just waiting for the next storm tomorrow. OOps. Think I saw some snowflakes. lol

      Lol, it snowed a couple of inches over here again today, but it wasn’t bad. It took 2 days for the streets to be cleared in our subdivision, but they are ok now.
