The photo was taken in an area that was a little sheltered. We actually had 6 – 8 inches of very dry, light stuff. The blower was the result of getting older. Last year I think I used it only twice. This year should be better. One of the towns not too far away had 16 inches out of that storm.
Actually, that building is a garage that was built in the 1940’s and I now use it as a sort of shop and storage for power equipment.
Back in the 40’s, highway guard rails were made of several thicknesses of wood bolted together, 2 X 8’s mostly. When they were replaced with steel, the state let anyone salvage the wood from the old guard rails. That building was built from them as we a large number of garages, hay sheds, barns, etc.
I have a lot of memories concerning that garage. One of my uncles built it. On day in late fall he had killed a deer and it was hanging in the garage to cool. Inadvertently he left a back window open and the next morning when he went into the garage there was a Canadian Lynx lying there just below where the deer was hanging. It left through the window and he left through the door through which he had entered.
This snow will be gone in a week or so but hopefully there will be more before Christmas and there certainly will be plenty of snow at the ski areas if not in the valleys. The closest ski area to here (35 air miles away) has 44 inches at the top. Bu Christmas there will be twice that much.
I loved to see Your home. Here in Mikkeli, Finland we have full winter. It has been very cold, now it is warm and the Lake Saimaa has got water on its ice cover. What is odd is that we got three storms already. Just now we have the third storm.
What odd weather for you, but it appears that ours will be similar. We have had about a week of sub-zero (F) night time temperatures and now we expect a week or so of above freezing. Well, it will change again, I’m sure. The surprise and the joy of winter!
