Aftermath of Blizzard - 19.5 inches of Snow!


I posted photos yesterday of our blizzard and now that it is over we officially had 19.5 inches of snow fall here during the storm and more last night, along with strong winds and dropping temperatures. I took these photos early this morning when I went out to clean off my car - again - and it was very cold and windy. The sun was just coming up and so most everything was still in shadow. The winds had created strange shapes and mounds all around. When I first looked out my windows I saw a long ridge run the length of the building and outside the drifts were everywhere. Our poor trees with their branches hanging down to the ground - the snow was so heavy in the storm and now the branches are frozen to the ground where they touched. You can see here how high the snow is piled - in front of my clean car - at the edges of our parking lot

I made a few more Santa candy bar holders - a little different style this time with added buttons. This wraps around a Million Dollar candy bar and they make great gifts!

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! Wishing you a great weekend!

Wow, Barbara!!! That is some lovely snowfall :) I hope your warm weather tomorrow clears the rest of it out (must be "not quite so pretty" by now.) Anyway, lots of time left this winter for another good snow! xoxoMo
