The sky has been sort of teasing us with a few snowflakes for several days. Then, last night, it got serious. By about 6:30 PM there was an accumulation of ten inches in our backyard.
Here is the view of the front of the house after I finished shoveling about 4:30 this afternoon. Barb started the work about 10:30 AM and I had a couple inches to remove from the stairs, sidewalk, and part of the driveway which had accumulated since she did her share.
So far it looks similar to Snowmageddon 2017 and just a few days later in the month than then.
We are thankful it is nothing like Snowpocalypse 2019.which gave us over 16 inches of snow and nearly canceled our wedding. Interestingly that storm was almost exactly the same days in February as this year.
We’re thinking maybe we should spend the middle weeks of February in Hawaii on the odd number years from now on.
Update 2/14/2021: Barb “played snowplow” this morning and cleaned the driveway and sidewalk again:
We have now essentially run out of room to put the snow. I’m glad it’s supposed to warm up today and continue with above freezing temperatures through the next few days.
