Snow Day

Snow: Round 3

This morning looked a lot like two of the past three mornings on the front porch, with another 10 cm accumulation overnight. (I'd cleared the porch including the wood box and porch rails the day before because snow on the porch tends to freeze first so I try to keep it clear.)

Apparently [personal profile] travelswithkuma was giving Lisa Ideas, because later in the day, I found something on the large wood box that appears to have been Kuma's idea.

Amtrak has been affected by the weather, but not as badly as the Southwest Chief which was running more than 42 hours late today. I was ready for it when it came by today.

This afternoon after finishing up the Day Jobbe, I went out to do more "trimming" of snow including sweeping the snow off the wood boxes. Just as I was finishing, the next round of snow started to fall. I'm so glad the boxes are full and the refrigerator and larder well-stocked. I like snow, but I don't like to drive in it, so staying home and staying warm is just fine with me.
