The snow has just started here… not much has accumulated yet, but it’s coming down really, really hard. The weather service is issuing warnings…
“Intensifying low pressure will bring significant snowfall to the region during today and tomorrow. Snow will begin this morning, becoming heavier by afternoon. Heavy snow will continue throughout the day and overnight. New snow accumulation in excess of twenty-four inches. Sleet and freezing rain likely tomorrow night.”
And more snow in some form is predicted for every day this week.
See the open area in this photo? One little spot in the center near the trees at the top was starting to get close to being bare ground. The sun hits that spot all day long and there… in just that one tiny place… the snow had melted down so it was only a couple of inches deep. It was our first real sign of spring, and I’m so ready for spring. I’ve been watching and waiting, thinking I would see a patch of bare ground there in just a few more days… I guess now that won’t happen for a while.
About an hour into the storm
We need some warmth here! We’ve had a couple of “heat waves” where temperatures got up to around 36°F, but most of the time temperatures have been closer to zero or below. It has, in fact, remained so cold that sugaring season hasn’t even started yet. People around here are speculating that this year there may not be one.
Of course we all know that eventually it WILL warm up… and that eventually it WILL stop snowing.
