This one shows our patio door, from the inside. Last night, we got snow followed by freezing rain followed by more snow. Then the wind kicked up, creating whiteout conditions. The result of all this weather is snow covering pretty much everything.
Then I opened the inside of the patio door. Snow was piled between the screen and the glass, and the screen was frozen shut. No photos of the patio - the camera just picks up the screen.
Then I went out to the garage. Here's what I saw when I opened the garage door.
This one shows a big mound of snow on the roof - right over our front step. Hopefully it won't cut loose when someone is ringing our doorbell. You have to clean your roof with a snow rake when it gets like this, but with the high winds, it ain't gonna happen right now. If we tried, all that snow would blow down right on us. It's not just messy, it's heavy from the rain we got between the snow falls.
So far, we've gotten 7 to 10 inches of snow, with more to come. The temp is about 25* with winds up to 40 mph and a wind chill of -5*. It's still pretty, but I'm not going outside in it until it quits blowing around. Janine, hopefully this will make you miss your snow just a little less. If not, well, you can always come visit!
