Oh, What a Beautiful Morning


We ended up with about 13 inches of snow and a thin layer of ice underneath all of it.  Many places drifted with higher amounts.  



Last night we had temps in the single digits and a freezing fog.  


It coated everything in glorious, sparkling ice crystals.  




As the sun rose, the sky became a clear, beautiful blue.  The clear road to our house is the result of our neighbor's generous spirit.  He used his enormous tractor to plow the entire length of our small, country road and our driveway.  Our county road crews have been working overtime to keep main roads clear.  Small roads like this are not top priority.  




School was in session one day last week and it doesn't look too promising for tomorrow.  Some of our surrounding counties have already closed school for Monday.  


At this point I actually haven't left the farmette since last Tuesday.

It's all good.  


Linking up today with Tom!

  2. You are so right. This is beautiful.

    We were blessed to receive small amounts of snow and ice.

    Thanks for coming by. The "hushed" places are important, aren't they?

  11. You've captured the beauty of the snow. The man who plowed the road takes me back many years when that would be the norm. Bless him.

  16. What a nice red barn. It is certainly well kept. The rime ice is beautiful but is can do so much damage with its weight. You have gotta love the yellow barn and shed/barn. It is a beauty. Really like the yellow. So inviting. These a lovely pictures.

  17. OOPS...I meant to tell you that the snow was so deep my body was beneath the surface. And then when I tried to get up and did the face plant, I thought I was going to have frost bite :-) Still I had a blast and would do it again in a New York Minute.

  19. We got lucky and only got 22". Lot of the folks north of us got over 30".

  20. The weather may be inconvenient for many, but it looked so beautifully pristine in your photos, Michelle. What a nice neighbor you have too and bet he really enjoys getting out and plowing the snow. Grenville used his John Deere tractor to plow our side street in VA. Roads were not plowed there, other than the main highway.

  21. These are incredibly beautiful photographs.
    Hope you're not too stranded.
    It actually warmed up today, here in Missouri.
    (And my headache finally left.)

  22. Gorgeous! You got the perfect kind of snow....the kind that sticks to every little twig in the trees!

  34. Michelle, I can't even pick which of these photographs I like best. New fallen snow can be beautiful, but I have seen my share of it and will leave the snow picture-taking to you and my other northern friends.
