This past weekend we again had a major snow fall. Not too many days ago we had our first large snow storm so I am surprised that we are getting hit again so quickly. The first snow fall resulted in schools and businesses being closed. Unfortunately, the temperatures dropped rapidly and the streets and pavements were never completely cleared. As a result, we had icy bumps on our pathways. Now we are having our second snow storm of the season. I was not expecting this one to be so long or to have so much accumulation. The first snow fall was heavy and wet. This second snow fall has been light and fluffy. It is definitely easier to shovel.
I have told myself that I no longer want to complain about the weather. There is a lot to be thankful for when we get rain and snow but there is also not a lot that can be done about the weather. So why complain about it?
These snow storms have changed the outdoors into a classic winter landscape. It is very picturesque. The ground is completely covered in white. The trees are heavy with snow.
