On Tuesday we had a nice little snowstorm where the snow was light and fluffy, and we didn’t get too much—five inches, maybe.
This meant that on Wednesday, it was time for Clif to put on his warm clothes, plug in Little Green, and do some cleaning.
After a snowstorm, it is always so pretty at the little house in the big woods. I love the blues on the snow and the sweep of it across the yard and into the woods.
In my arrangement on the porch, it looked as though the dried flowers were wearing a snow cap.
And a pileated woodpecker decided the tree at the end of the driveway was the perfect place to search for lunch.
Clif and I discussed whether the tree should come down, but, in fact, in the backyard we have several trees with similar holes, and they have been standing for years. But we’ll definitely keep an eye on this one.
We’ll also be keeping an eye on the weather as a nor’easter blows up the northeastern seaboard. New York and Massachusetts are supposed to get the worst of it, but the Maine coast will probably get its fair share. In central Maine, the prediction is for six to eight inches of snow. We shall see.
One thing is certain. Tomorrow, Clif will be out with Little Green, clearing the driveway and the various paths.
