It Came In Like a Lion

I was so hoping that March would come in like a lamb, but unfortunately, it came in like a roaring lion.   We knew it was coming since two days ago, with the forecast of 4 to 6 inches originally.  Yesterday it was changed to 10 to 12 inches.  This morning, they said our area could read 16 inches!  Ick!   Out of curiosity, I brought out a ruler and measured on my front walkway where  I knew there were no drifts.   It measured 8 inches. 

This morning, around 10 a.m. when I took a few pictures, we had about 4 inches.

 In just 4 hours we got 4 more inches which means we're averaging 2 inches an hour.   I shouldn't complain though, it's only our second major snowstorm all winter.  It's been pretty mild.  Last year at this time, we had several feet of snow--we were buried in it!  The photo below was at our old address and the mound of snow behind them was 9 feet tall!

Now, that I'm cozy and warm (after spending an hour in the chilly air), it looks beautiful outside.  The pine trees are dressed in white, it's quiet--no cars, and I'm enjoying a nice, fresh cup of coffee.  Aahhh.  Such small things can me me so happy.

I hope the rest of you are enjoying a wonderful day and those of you in warmer climates, if you want any snow to cool down in, I have lots of it---for free!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
