Today broke sunny and blue, with a foot of fresh powder smothering the landscape. It snowed hard for nearly 24 hours, and left us with this beautiful, soft powder. As I went out to shovel this morning I was intrigued to see the deer had already criss-crossed the lawn and pawed through the snow under crabapple trees to see if they could find any treats.
Our plow service waited until the storm was done to open up our driveway, leaving behind huge snowbanks.
Meanwhile, the patio and pizza oven were snuggled in their renewed winter blanket, adding 12″ to the older 3-4″ remaining from earlier storms.
I broke open a path, but chose to leave the snowy cap on the oven itself.
Time to pull out the snowshoes and find some more exciting terrain!
