We got 10 inches of snow overnight last night. Definitely the most so far this season. In fact due to the mild winter last year this is the most snow we have had since March 2011 apparently. More snow is forecast too.
Chris had to go out and use the snowblower to clear the drive, otherwise we stood no chance of getting out the house.
Well the snow has gone, but lots of rain to come. Temps are much better too – it is going to be 16C today. With the rain and better temps the trees and flowers will hopefully start to bloom. We ready we have some iris bulbs that are starting to shoot and one or two of our shrubs are greening up and bushing out, so it won’t be long before everything else follows.
Our black squirrels are still regular visitors. This is one on our deck. As you can see this one is actually pretty red in colour, but next to the real reds, he is pretty black. We know we have more than one black one as they vary in colour so much. Nice to get a bit of variety though.
Also we have lots of chipmunks running around. This is just one of many.
Spoke to my aunt and uncle in Spain yesterday and it is mid 20C there at the moment and no humidity, so pretty perfect.
