After the Snow

Yesterday, we got about eight inches of snow, and more is expected on Sunday and then again next week. It’s shaping up to be quite the snowy winter. Thank goodness for Little Green. Once upon a time, Clif, the girls, and I shoveled it all by hand. Those days are gone, gone, gone, especially since it is just two of us here at the little house in the big woods.

Cleaning up after a storm is a lot of work, but the snow does leave our yard and home looking like a winter wonderland.


Our cozy home tucked in the snow!



Ariel, the flying pig, is about to be buried.

Today, I’ll be making apple pie, and our friends Cheryl and Denny will be coming over for an afternoon tea.

Nothing like pie on a cold winter’s day. (The one below is from another time.)

  1. The house looks very snug and cozy with all the snow! We were only 26 degrees when we woke up this morning which is a little chilly for NC – by Sunday it’s going to be in the mid to high 70s!

    1. Ginene, it makes a big difference if you have to drive in the snow. We’ve had more than our share of terror drives. Nowadays, we can stay in our own cozy home while it snows and not worry about slippery roads.

  2. Oh, Laurie, batten down the hatches! It looks like a major snow dump is about to hit. Pull up to the stove, make another pie, and crack open a good book. Hasn’t the moon on the snow these past days been amazing? Time to embrace winter and enjoy the ride.

    1. Brenda, we’re getting ready, cleaning up the last of the snow from the previous storm, bringing in wood, and going to the store to stock up on a few things. There will be treats to help us get through the next storm. Winter is here, and we are embracing it. You, too, along with your husband and Capp, stay snug and warm.

  3. Just a Little Green like when spring is born…, there will be crocuses to bring to school…Joni Michell’s achingly beautiful song is now in my mind… What lovely snow! I mostly view snow up high on mountain tops here in San Bernardino. I love seeing Maine through your eyes.
