I woke up about 2:30 Tuesday morning and looked outside. There was no snow at that point. I woke up again about 4:30 and snow had started falling. About 9:15 on Tuesday morning this was what I saw outside our backdoor.
This morning AD took the camera outside. This is the drift that is on the backside of our home.
Mikey stayed in his house (that's in the garage) most of Tuesday. AD kept trying to coax him out but he was snuggled down and warm and he was NOT coming out! ONLY when he ABSOLUTELY had business to take care of would he even stick his nose out the opening.
Today, he's had a great time running in the snow while AD is outside working.
The news reports that the official snowfall is supposed to be 13.5 inches in our area. I wonder how / where it's measured. Of course we have drifts - you've seen that above but at our house, at least, we can see some (dead) grass in places. In fact for some strange reason there was no snow on our driveway and no snow on parts of the sidewalk to the front door. Go figure! Anyway, is there some sort of snow gauge similar to a rain gauge? Just wondering.
For those of you that are dealing with snow right now - stay warm and stay safe!
