Why is no one surprised that my back yard looks like this? Maybe because this storm and the one following it covered half the country?
In round one of this set of storms, we only got about 3" of snow, according to my 11 year old weather reporter. That brings the total on the ground to 10", according to the same reporter. He's very handy, being willing to wander around in the snow and all.
This blue spruce really does look pretty in the snow, even though I wouldn't venture beyond my back step, and so had to zoom through the cherry tree to take the picture!
Here's hoping the second storm brings only the 2" to 4" of snow predicted, and not the 1/2" of ice that's supposed to follow the snow!
