Another snow storm

At this point, I think mother nature might be trying to prove that she doesn’t need to adhere to the season changes in the calendar. Since the official beginning of spring less that a week ago, we caught the tail end of a winter storm which dropped somewhere around a foot and a half of snow over the course of 3 days with some additional rain and, currently, we’re cautiously enjoying the fury of a second storm.

Snow began at some point during the  night with heavy winds waking us up this morning. Each of us commented a handful of times how odd it was that we still had not lost power with the strength of the wind gusts between 40-60 mph and sure enough around noon the lights flickered and out it went.
The onset of the storm brought with it some large flakes, while not unusual, are still mesmerizing to watch twirl from the sky.

So far, we have somewhere around 8-10″ of fresh snow with no end in sight until late Friday or early Saturday. One of the major freeways has been shut down due to lack of adequate snow removal crews/ equipment.
Power is out, wood burning stove is roaring, and life is slow again.
