friday storm mid-way through

Imagine that, snow in New England in February!

We’ve been very lucky this winter—I think this is only the second significant snowstorm we’ve had this season. By significant, I mean deep enough so that we have to do some shoveling out. Mostly Stanley. Like 95% Stanley. I dug out the car and sprinkled salt (click to enlarge):

Ginger had been a bit lethargic the past couple of days, but she perked right up and did the bunny hop around the yard a few times (click to enlarge):

So far, we got about 6.5 or 7 inches of snow. That was the first wave. They keep talking about the second wave coming through but so far (knock on wood), it’s been very scant. It’s very pretty, but that’s enough, thank you very much! It’s really close to freezing, so things are getting a bit sloppy. It’s not supposed to be over until after midnight. Mostly it’s just really dark out—none of the brightening that usually happens indicating it’s nearly over. The prediction is 6-14 inches. These pictures were taken around 12:30-1:00 p.m. so that gives an idea of how heavy the skies are.

I put a few more photos up in the gallery.
