My snowmance. It might be described as a love-hate relationship.
Looking out the front door beneath a fringe of icicles, there is the shed with snow up to the middle of the door. I hope I don't need anything that's stored in there any time soon. To the left of it are two grills but I don't believe there will be any cookouts until spring. On the far left is a raised bed garden. The frame is four feet tall.
The yard stick doesn't reach the ground so my guess is that there is over thirty inches of snow and ice out there now.
My neighbor's mail box. He was out valiantly shoveling when I took this.
A giant white pine living up to its name.
The corner of Fairview and Roosevelt Streets, near my house. Most delivery services cannot find us on a good day. Today I don't think they are even going to try.
The snow in the yard is thigh deep to wade in. I don't actually recommend carrying a 5 gallon bucket of black oil sunflower seed when you go for a walk like this, but the birds certainly seem to appreciate having their feeders filled. Accomplishing that task led to the inevitable nap.
Ice glints in the shard of sunlight that dare to look down. When it's possible to stop and catch a breath, the beauty is all there around you. Undeniably, nature has her way in our snowmance.
