Send some of that white stuff our way. Yesterday we received just enough snow to cover the grass, more would be appreciated but only if I don’t have to drive in it. Will send recent “snow” photos.
There is a special magic in the snow. Besides enjoying the beauty I think of the snow pack that is building in the high country to provide our water supply for the next year. It also gives me a chance to see in the morning who all visited the place during the night.
I’ve been sitting here wondering why, if snow is such a good insulator, there always are photos of people sweeping it off their roofs in the northeast. I finally decided that it has to do with pitch. Maybe there are areas that have roofs that are too flat to support the weight of a wet snow.
In any case, yours is beautiful — and I’m glad it’s helping you cocoon. This really is a Christmas-card snow: what a lucky fellow you are. The photos are just lovely.
I know that there are many homes with roofs that are not engineered for heavy snow loads. My roof has a very steep pitch to it and is built for a heavy snow load, but when the snow gets deep I still rake most of it off the roof just to be sure.
We nave now received about 8 inches in the last two days and it is snowing heavily tonight: the forecast is for up to 7 more inches during the night and 2 to 4 more tomorrow.
Were it possible, I think we would be happy to share some of the snow with you. We are expecting more probably late next week now. There is a cold air mass at ground level and it will get very cold before more snow comes. I love the snow for its beauty and knowing that it will form a deep snow pack in the mountains.
