Ya Gotta Love the Snow

Fourth snow storm in three weeks has left us with about 3.5 feet on the level, with drifts and plow piles exceeding 6 feet.  And we've been lucky -- in all 4 storms we've gotten the lesser amounts of snow.  Further east of us, you can double the amount of on the level snow.  The saving grace is that all of this white wonder has been the light and fluffy kind, like powdered sugar.  Of course with this last storm, we've also had the blessing of super strong winds which has caused no end of problems on the road ways.  Plus we also have subzero windchills.  This morning at 6 am, our porch thermometer read -7°F and the windchill was at -28°F.

These pictures are from the storm just before the lastest one -- so all the piles are just that much higher!
