We were hit with another nor’easter yesterday. Snow and howling winds and more snow. It started yesterday morning as snow pellets and then after about a half hour, it changed into a full blown blizzard and didn’t stop until 10 p.m. The snow plow finally cleared our road at midnight and left a mountain of snow…literally…at both ends of our circular driveway. Bring on Spring!
These photos were taken yesterday…just before dusk.
The snow is piled halfway up the workshop doors.
The backyard and barn.
The driveway where I park my van in front of the other barn.

Can you see the mail box to the right in the center of the picture? That’s across the road…but the road has disappeared because it’s entirely filled in with snow!
I think a snow blower might find it’s way home in the next couple of days.
Bring on Spring!
I received a nice surprise in the mail the other day from Stephanie.
My very own mug rug made in Stephanie’s unique style.
Thanks a million, Stephanie. It’s already been put to use many times…and I haven’t even dribbled on it yet!
My newest purchase from the Moose River Rug Hooking Studio…a Snapdragon hooking frame.
I’m amazed at how much easier it is to hook on this frame and I’ve made more progress on my first rug.
All the carpet, underpad and endless trash has been removed and is now residing at the dump. It was our intention to pick up more paint yesterday but that didn’t happen due to the storm so our painting projects are in the ‘pause’ mode until we can get to the store. That might not happen for a couple of days because I’m sure that’s how long it’ll take before we’re dug out.
Bring on Spring!
