Snow Storm 12-20-12

We went 290 days without any snow in our area, broke a long standing record.

Today we paid up for it, as much of the Midwest did.

Rained all night then turned to sleety snow early Thursday morning. Then the snow started to come down, huge flakes at first. My pictures show how fast things changed over about 45 minutes. We ended up with 5.2 inches of snow and blizzard conditions.

Snowstorm 12-20-12 026

Looking up the road towards the next door neighbor’s house. Hard to see in the picture but the snow is blowing off of our roof big time by now.






Bunny tracks 12 20 12

Looks like the bunny rabbits were heading for shelter. Got these pictures of his tracks running along the front of the house under the window.

I heard him as he crunched along the snow and went to see what the noise was.
