What a way to start the year! I grew up in Michigan, so snow is nothing new for me, but I haven’t seen snow like this since I left home in 1986.
It hasn’t just been the amount of snow we got, although it’s more than I’ve ever seen here. The fact that it’s not covering or covered by ice is highly unusual. What thrilled me were the drifts and the way the wind sculpted them.
I’ve never seen contrast like this.
And here’s my boy to provide scale. He’s 6′ tall. You can also see it’s still snowing in this picture. It stopped a couple hours after I took these.
Today it’s sunny, but we won’t get above zero. The roads likely won’t be cleared until tomorrow. I have food, cat supplies, and coffee, so I’m set. Since I have plenty to do around the house to keep me busy, the snow is likely a huge blessing! Stay warm where you are.
