Northern Sierra Snow Storm-Update

Well, the storm we prepped for here came in about 24 hours later than expected. We had roughly 3 inches of snow fall on Wednesday with spurts of hail and periods of calm skies. The worst of the storm was delayed until last night. We woke up this morning to this:

Surprisingly,  with the strong winds of 20-30 mph we have not yet lost power (and I’m knocking on wood.)
The snow has been coming down steadily for hours now. We’re expecting an additional 6 inches between now and Friday.
This is the measure of snow accumulation at 9 inches:

It sure is pretty though. Even having grown up in an area with regular snow fall in the winter time, snow storms like this one still manage to conjure up a magical feeling. There is a sense of peace and excitement that is unique to being enveloped by snow in our little pocket of the world on our mountain. I joked this morning to husband that it felt like Christmas Morning.

Today is shaping up to be a perfect day for play time in the snow with Moose and curling up next to the fire.
