I knew we were going to technically have a white Christmas this year, as a day of 35 degree weather didn't do anything to melt all the snow. However, when we woke this fine morning to see HUGE snowflakes falling as fast as any thunder storm, it truely was a white Christmas. Before it ended we received another 5-8 inches of snow.
I haven't gone out yet to see what it did to our driveway (I'm certain I'll be shoveling), but I did take this snow picture from our office window.
I'm really worried about this latest snow. It's huge flakes weigh heavily on branches. If you note the evergreen blueberry bush on the left, the canes are so weighed down I hope they don't break. That and you can just make out the mound on the far right where my Jersey twig of a blueberry bush is planted. I watched it get burried alive . It's so scrawny after being planted in October that I'm worried about it too.
I didn't take pictures of my hoop covers, but a glance out my garage window showed that they are still standing. Tomorrow I'll have to get out there and do some "gardening".
Well, I had better go out and see what I can do to unbury the van to head across town to my folks place. Unfortunately all the effort I put into shoveling a 75 foot driveway at my in-laws last night did nothing to help them get to Chrismas dinner (with all the pies). They called to say they got another 8 inches themselves and all the work I did was for naught. /sigh Well, at least I saw them yesterday and the kids got their presents.
Here's wishing you and your families the Merriest of Christmases and the safest of holidays.
