On Saturday, we had a lovely little snow—about four inches—light, fluffy, and delightful. And then it did something no Mainer wants to see until spring—it rained. Then it got cold again. I’m sure I don’t have to spell out what happened after that.
Still, there were opportunities for photos, so there was a silver lining to this icy cloud. But let’s just say that Clif and I are very careful walking down our steps and to our car. When you see the dog sliding around the backyard, you know it’s slippery.

It is awfully pretty but not much fun to maneuver around in!
You got that right! Fortunately it’s sunny and clear today. Pa and I are going to town to get supplies for Christmas.
We got about 6″ of snow. Then a kind of sleet. The next day it started raining. So, picture me out there shoveling all the left over snow and stuff off the driveway. In some places I was ‘shoveling’ water. But, at least when it dried we didn’t have an entire sheet of ice. Our drive faces the north, and if we don’t clear it each and every time, we’ll be walking on ice until April. 🙂
Walking on ice until April! What a thought! No wonder you shoveled that that water.
You did well finding some bright color on that gray day. Hope yo got all the supplies you needed for Christmas. .
I’ll do my best!
I’m with Derrick.
Nice pix… You’ve captured the feeling!
We got a nice snowshoe in before it turned to rain. Now it’s all hard and crusty!
Sigh. That hard, crusty snow ruins for skis and snowshoes.
