These pictures were taken about six hours after the storm began. We had six inches of snow at that point. Now, as I am getting ready for bed, there are about ten inches. I can no longer see any gray stone in the rock garden, and it is still snowing! There will be a foot on the ground when I wake!
Thankfully, we have not lost power, and we do not necessarily have to drive anywhere tomorrow. The temperatures by the middle of the week are expected to reach the mid-fifties, so this will soon be but a memory! In the meantime, I feel like I should be baking Christmas cookies and singing carols, rather than carving Jack o’Lanterns and sewing costumes!
