Thursday’s Thoughts. #14

Good morning everyone! Well, yesterday was certainly a snowy day for us. I was not going to show anymore winter snow pictures now that it is April, however, since winter does not want to go away easily I decided to share a few pics of our new snow. That was easily our biggest snowfall of the winter, and the final amount was 14 inches (35cm).

Too much snow for April. But it does happen sometimes. Actually quite frequently. And sometimes much later than this, more towards the end of April. Today it is still cloudy, windy and with a few snowflakes floating down. There is already a light covering of new snow on the deck after I cleaned it off this morning. I still have not shoveled the whole deck, I am doing it very slowly.

This is my walkway.

Some I will leave and it can melt off. I do not like that though as it produces ice and ice is treacherous. I slipped on a patch of ice, twice, this morning taking my garbage out to the street. The ice was covered with a bit of new snow so I did not see it, until my foot decided to go a different direction than the rest of me. Oh my, that hurt. I think those gulls and geese decided to go back south again. I have not seen them around anyway.

The driveway, which has not been completely cleared yet.

There does seem to be a hawk around though, and it keeps scaring my birds. Always something for those poor little birds. There is a chipmunk around too, though I am not sure which one it is. I think perhaps it is Scooter, since he was the least friendly of the group. And this little chipmunk will not come to me when I call him.

Hmm, looks like the sun is trying to shine, it did shine briefly earlier this morning. Still some light snow however. I know today is supposed to be DIY project day, but I decided to show our new snow pics instead. But the DIY project will come out a little later.

Showing a bit of the deck.

The sun has disappeared and it is snowing quite a bit now, guess it will be one of those days. Well, it is supposed to warm up a lot this weekend, I hope the forecast is correct, we shall see. Have a wonderful Thursday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  3. Simon says, β€œThat was a bad storm.” But some of us are very jealous that you get such a BEAUTIFUL storm in April! I recall a blog I posted that had a YouTube video of a girl singing about April Snow.
    THANX for the wonderful snowy scenes! Wish I could come and help clear your deck so we could sit out and drink some hot chocolate!
