Anchorage got about 14 inches Thursday and it is was still snowing at the time. Tom dug me a path to my car and cleaned it off before he left for work at 6:30 AM and when I went out at about 2:00 PM the snow was almost up to my knees. My car was buried and it took a while to clear it off. Visibility was not too good and I almost turned around and went home, but I wanted my massage at the chiropractor. I drove slow and careful.
When Tom came home he spent two hours shoveling out the driveway and the sidewalk so we could walk without having to wade through snow.
|Somewhere in my back yard there is a fence. You can just see the edge of it on the left had side. See that tiny line of brown in the snow through the raspberry bush branches.|
I am grateful for one thing, the days are getting lighter earlier, so the darkness is fading away which makes the days much nicer. At least the sunshine gives the appearance of warmth.
Here is a picture of one of our "friendly" moose who visited the neighborhood in November.
