Ok, I'm ready for spring now...

Really, 10 inches of snow was the highest prediction I had heard.
Instead we got over a foot, making this the snowiest month on record ever in Connecticut.

Maybe I should have taken it as a bad omen when the heavy construction equipment showed up during yesterday morning's flurries.

They moved most of the massive snow pile on our side of the circle to the other side of the circle. With the equipment, they managed to make the pile more vertical than it had been on our side of the street. The neighbor's house is on a small hill. The snow pile was almost as tall as the hill when they were finished.

This left room for the plow to make new gigantic snowbanks this morning. I sent Chandler up onto the new snowbank, and he laid down at the top. He's the black blob visible in the photo, in front of the neighbor's garage. Behind him is the old snowbank, now covered with a nice layer of new snow.

Maybe they'll melt by June?

  1. Oh my goodness! I guess I'll stop complaining about the snow that we have, although it does make getting hay bales out to the sheep a little difficult.
