snow, snow, go away.

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon. I know, your tired of hearing this every week. I'm tired of doing it every week too.  :-)
It was a fairly slow week after all. With almost constant snowfall and bitter cold temps. I image a lot of people just stay home. I would, have if I could have.   :-)
 Friday, while we were standing by the front window, waiting to take a pic of Air Force One, (see my last post) I saw this group of Bluebirds all huddled on one little branch of my Purple leaf Sandcherry. I zoomed in the best I could.
The van and SUV behind the snowbanks across the street, I suspect were also waiting to see the plane take off as they left shortly afterwards. There's been about 8 of these Bluebirds hanging around the yard all winter. I can't imagine what they are finding to eat.
I took these pics at work.....
The snow bank is higher than the car.
The snowbanks are so high, you can't see cars on the road. I've never seen so much snow in the 17 years we've been in this Salon. Normally in the winter, we get an occasional thaw that melts some of the snow before we get more. But not this year.  So far, we've had 49 inches of snow. Our season normal is 51. Since we've got the rest of February and all of March to go, and, it's snowing again today, I think we'll go pass that. It's been bitter cold since mid December. Forecast is for colder than normal temps through March.
No global warming going on here.  :-\
We had home made pizza last night, and Craig is going to cook our 3rd of 4 turkeys today, so the house will smell good all afternoon.  :-)
 I think today I'll clean out drawers and closets.


  1. Wow. That's a lot of snow. I hope you get a break or a melt soon!

  2. I remember huge piles of snow in NY that took weeks to melt. They were awesome to play on.
