Well we had our first real snowstorm of 2017. Blizzard really. It hit Cape Cod worse than any other part of Massachusetts.
I took this Saturday night (Jan 7) as the storm was well underway. I tried to keep the deck outside the door, step and path to the generator cleared throughout the day and night. At least the snow is light and fluffy. There was a little wind but not much, so the power stayed on. The generator was ready though, just in case.
Woke up to sunny, clear skies and really cold temps.....and 24" of snow. Eek.
Russell had backed his truck way up on the grass in case the generator needed to be jumpstarted. At least he has four wheel drive. He was able to power right through and get down the driveway.
I pooped out trying to clean off the car! I've learned to flip the wiper blades to the up position for storms.
I will admit that fresh, pristine snow is lovely, especially when the sun is coming up.
The roads were already plowed.
That is one big plow pile.
The snow is defying gravity on top of the hand truck.
The forecast for the rest of this week calls for rain and temps in the 40s and 50s, so this should be mostly gone, thankfully. I can handle snowstorms as long as we get a meltdown after a few days. It's just that in 2015, it literally never stopped snowing for a month! That was a bit much to handle but this is enjoyable when I don't have to be anywhere!
