A late March snowstorm hit our area today
causing problems for not only humans
but also the little birds.
These little prints say it all.
I took shovel in hand every hour,
or sometimes on the half-hour,
to clear the snow from the back deck
so the birds had a place to stand while waiting
their turn on the feeders.
We've measured at 7 1/2 inches by 7:20 Sunday night.
It's over a foot North of us.
We still have a couple more inches to go according to the news.
It's a wet, heavy snow, difficult to push around.
As I returned to re-clear a path across the courtyard
below the new snow is a layer of slushy mush,
I'm not sure if it will stay slushy or turn to ice.
I hope to work from home tomorrow,
I'm an hour away from work and I don't want to
try our roads in the dark tomorrow morning.
I'm not a very good snow driver.
My husband has been trying to keep ahead of the snow
on the subdivision road and our driveway.
He has a plow on our four wheeler so he drives
around every few hours, coming home soaking wet.
I'm taking care of decks, porches and pathways.
It is supposed to be in the 60s by next weekend!
I hope we've seen the last of the snow!
