Today's forecast called for rain, heavy at times with gusts of winds.
Tuesday, 11a.m. I glanced out the window and noticed the rain had turned to wet snow...never in my mind did I think that by....
1p.m. we would have 3 inches of snow! Notice the picture above and the one below were taken from the same spot in my yard!
and it continued..... heavier flakes now!
Tree limbs started snapping like toothpicks under the weight of all that heavy snow...loud snapping cracks filled the still air as I took these pictures. Many of our neighbors lost large limbs from their beautiful evergreens, maples and pear trees. We were luckier than most and only lost a few small branches off of our swamp maple. In a few hours it was all over and I think we probably received about 4 inches of snow.
...and of course, through it all, our resident squirrel NEVER missed a crunch on all those sunflower seeds I had put out earlier in the morning...for ALL to enjoy.
...and by Friday we are suppose to be back in the mid 60's with plenty of sunshine......as least that's what our weather forecasters are calling for???
weekend with family
