Snow Day - Part 1 - Wednesday 12/17/2008

I went out as soon as there was even a little light to get photos of the snow in case it didn't accumulate much or last long. Boy, was I in for a surprise!

The yard outside our front door and the wall Hydra built a few years ago, dusted in snow around 7 a.m.

Hydra is about to free skiiing bear of some of its snow.

The power went off around noon and stayed off for a couple of hours, so we went out to the garage and brought in all the dry firewood. This is from the inside of the garage looking out through a little drift that I knocked with my foot on my way in.

We walk down to the mailbox where--surprise!--there's mail! I'm a little excited about the snow.

Back in the house, our Internet connection does not return when the power comes back on. Sundry is frustrated not only in her attempts to telecommute but--more importantly--to upload photos to her blog!

We continue our walk...with video! (In which it is confirmed that Sundry will never stop sounding like a Midwesterner. Hoosier pride!)

We've had a lot of snow too. It's been snowing some everyday since Monday, and today and tomorrow are supposed to bring us 7". We already have maybe 4" or 5", although it's hard to tell, it's blowing around so much. We have about 1' on top of the yard debris can which is in a fairly protected spot away from the wind!

That's a LOT of snow for us!

Fingers - I loved the photo of the robin and pomegranate on your blog!

We just had the one day of snowing, but it's still sticking as of today, which is very unusual. If we get snow it's usually gone by the afternoon of the same day. Hope you're able to enjoy it!
