Last night it unexpectedly began to snow…and snow and snow. This morning we were shrouded in a foot of soft, white silence. Trees bowed under the weight, bent almost double, forming arches and bowers. Power cables and phone lines stretched to within a couple of inches of Robert’s head. Huge wet snowflakes fell, fell, fell.
The dogs are beside themselves with snow excitement.
This afternoon we dig ourselves out with the help of the trusty bobcat. Half a mile of steep lane needs to be cleared.
