|The truck, about a third uncovered.|
|There was a ton of it on poor little Blue Belle!|
I just finished getting most of that off the truck just a few minutes ago. The sun is shining brightly now, and those ice crystals have mostly melted at this time. Those two pictures were yesterday afternoon.
This morning, the drifts around the truck were past the hubs and over most of the running board. That means the drifts are at least 15 inches. Drifts against the house are approximately 28-36 inches, as well as I can estimate. I didn't go out and measure, because I didn't want to be knee deep in snow, thank you very much!
It was bad enough that just as I finished getting the last of the snow off the truck, I swung the long handled ice scraper/window brush over my head to another location, and I hit the tree branches above me. I got a load of snow down the collar of my coat!!!! I didn't put up the hood, because it obstructed my view while looking up toward the top of the truck. I didn't even think about that low branch!!! Damn, that was cold!! I came inside immediately. It's still below zero. I'd been out for about 10 minutes, and was l pushing my time, anyway, but I was close to being done and wanted to finish. I'm finished!!!
|This grill isn't going to be used any time soon! I uncovered this at least five times yesterday!|
|I measured the snow on the trash can, and it was 17".|
|The railroad ties are covered at least 2 deep.|
|The lowest, partially covered tie you can see is the 3rd from the bottom!|
|That mark to the left of 3.5 is a minus symbol.|
|I have beautiful ice crystals on the outside of most of the windows.|
Are we having fun yet??? LOL!
