So while my “southern” friends are posting pictures of crocuses and daffodils, we’re still getting snow, snow and more snow.
If you’re a Wordle player (which I am) please guess the following word __ __ __ __ __
You have to guess it in one shot because I’m incapable of replicating the game for each and every one of you enthusiasts right now.
Look at how many of you got it! Good job! The Wordle word of the winter is SNOWY.
I just thought you might enjoy seeing some more snowy pictures. (No? But please stay. It will help you appreciate gratitude for weather in your neck of the woods. And we all now how a little thankfulness helps our mood at this time of year, don’t we? It brightens my day when you say hello, too.)
Our latest bout dropped about 14 inches since yesterday morning. Could even be more. We’ve been shoveling the deck. Making a trail to the bird feeder to feet all the purple finches, pine groesbeck, blue jays and chickadees. Digging out the tractor. Shoveling out the cars. Moving them. Plowing the driveway to the road.
We may also drive into town to get more gas for the tractor. To be determined. Depending how much it’s snowing in a half hour or so. (At this moment it doesn’t look promising. It’s really __ __ __ __ __)
The snow is really pretty. It is. Honest.
This is an interesting “weather event” because it’s coming in two stages. We’ve experienced the first phase which predicted 12-15 + inches. Except there’s ANOTHER 5-11 inches coming (12-16 in the higher terrain west of Marquette).
The chart below shows the initial projection, which proved woefully underestimated.
We shall finish our chores soon. Oh wait. I forgot. We still have to roof rake.
Tomorrow morning we shall start the entire scenario all over again.
I like this leaf photo. It makes winter look so simple and beautiful. That is one of the faces of snow. Utterly gorgeous. Just so.
The last picture: Keweenaw Bay from my friend’s house a week ago. I love this, too. The deer candle holders, the blooming flower, the snow and ice.
I will be offline for a spell now. We are going to be busy with family matters and there won’t be time to read, comment and post blogs.
Please tell me the weather in your neck of the woods and how you’re doing these late February days. And anyone playing Wordle?
