And Yet, More Snow
We had more snow last night. It has been three, or is it four, significant snowfalls in the last couple of weeks. In thirty years I do not remember this much snow this early. It isn't even officially winter yet. I will blame it on the Americans! We only get such snow when warm moist air comes up from the Gulf of Mexico to be greeted by cold Arctic highs. I think I am spoiled because we have a a few winters with not very much snow, (winter drought). Perhaps, this will be the winter the "old timers" talk about with the snow covering the fence posts. Yikes!
I am not only cheap, I am lazy. I only shovel enough to get the car off the road.
There is about a three foot high pile at the side of the road. Soon they will be cutting back the top half with the plow to leave a shelf to allow them to push more snow back when it comes.
I remember the days I would pull my son on skis or a tobbagan with the tractor so he could go up and down off the shelf. Those were the years, Winter was fun.
I am getting tires of having to break a new trail to the shed after every storm.
