Beware The Ides Of March

I guess it's not like we weren't warned that the Ides of March could be a troublesome day.
We had warning that a big snow was coming;  up and down the street, windshield wipers were raised in anticipation. (that's so they don't freeze to the windshield, Jennifer, or get damaged under the weight of the snow). Reading online reports, it appears Amherst got around 40 cm in yesterday's blizzard.
 Here's what we shovelled through at the end of the driveway.
 The driveway is a work in progress, exactly one car-width at present and not a flake more.
 Here's the view of our house from the street.  From inside we can't see over the snowbanks...nor could Polly see us out the front window.
She had to come out for a minute to check on us.
Spring is how many days away...??


  1. I feel bad for you guys on the east coast - we have had about a week of above 0 temps. here in MB, so most of our snow is gone now.

  2. So why is it that houses out your way don't have garages? I don't even have to brush off my car on snowy days! I am so spoiled.
    Enough of winter already. I need so sunshine and warm, and so does Polly!

  3. Boy, that's a lot of snow. I sure hope you get a long, slow melt.

  4. I don't know how many cm. we ended up getting here, but it was a sizeable "dump". On our back deck that was bare on Sat., we had a drift this a.m. that was over 3feet... Also a huge drift across front lawn. Our front looks much like yours. Enough already!!!

  5. Too many days away yet for Polly, I think! Wow, that is a whole heap of snow.....good to see that you have a patriotic red shovel, though!

  6. We had snow all day today as well infact it was worse than yesterday , very strong winds with blowing snow , hope this is it for this year .

  7. We heard that the Maritimes was in for another blast of Mother Nature's white stuff. Hopefully, it won't stick around long.
