We have gotten so much snow, and what a lot of people don't think of when you get this much is where does it go when it is plowed? Around our house, because we have such a large drive which circles to the Ancient Uncles there is a pile by the back deck between the house and garage which is over 5 foot high, a couple of piles by the ancient uncles which are a good 4 foot high, and a couple of piles between the garage and barn, and on the backside of the barn.
Municipalities have a whole other challenge. They pile it into the off street parking as best they can. But then there is no parking for downtown so it needs to go somewhere. DH went to work at 2 am a couple of mornings ago to move those piles by loading them into dump trucks and taking them to the landfill. This is the 2nd time they have had to do it this way this winter. The landfill is called 40 acres, they are down to less than 30 due to the 10 ft high snow piles on 10 of the acres.
I woke up this morning to -8. At least there was no wind chill, but this afternoon it is so beautiful, and sunny. I thought I would wander out and take some snaps.
I also had a chance to get outside pictures of my two quilts.
See what I mean about the colors!
I need to figure out what to sew next so inside I go.
