Snowzilla is long gone, but she left a world of beauty in her wake!
When we woke up on Sunday morning, we were treated to a winter wonderland.
Stunning. Really. Just simply beautiful.
This is right outside my front door. It was SO lovely. I just could not get enough...
Of course I had to get up, and out of bed, as soon as the sun rose.
I had to be out there to capture all the beauty.
It was cold, clear, calm and still.
Nature at its very most beautiful winter stage.
On the path right in my neighborhood. They did plow the path on Saturday morning. But as you can see it was snowy enough here.
A winter wonderland. Like a Christmas card!
No, it was not that easy to manage walking in the snow. Even though it was totally doable.
Our street had yet to be plowed. It was so quiet outside. The only thing one heard was the plow trucks on the street outside of our neighborhood. I also heard a couple of mourning doves. That’s it.
I did not meet a single soul while out and about, as always when the weather gets rough. It was only me and nature at this very early hour.
View from my front door.
MY street...before the snow plow...
Later on it was a whirlwind of activities on the street. AS it was the big DIG-OUT day. All the neighbors were out digging out their cars and shoveling the sidewalks. We were all also helping each other out.
I think it is amazing how people come together and help each other on occasions like this. I like it, I like it a lot.
This is the walkway to our cars...hmmm....
IT is truly HARD work digging out cars and shoveling. But, at the same time it is very rewarding, and sort of fun (in a weird way). VERY heavy, though!
My shoulders, hips and arms were hurting after the fact.
But, I guess one can call it “a good hurt”.
The snow plow--and bobcat-- finally came by. NOT an easy task for them either. I know the plowing companies were swamped with the amount of snow that we got.
I also know that there still are many neighborhoods that have yet to be visited by a snow plow.
This storm was one for the history books.
Yesterday, the federal government was closed in the DC-area. Lots of people at home. I have no idea what the word is today.
The schools remain closed. And no, it is not “stupid” or a “joke”. I totally understand. There are streets and neigborhoods that are not even at all cleared yet.
Keep in mind that this was a very, very, very unusual storm. It is not every winter you get a storm that dumps three feet of snow on the ground.
So, it’ll be a while until things are back to normal.
Yes, I live on this street.
The street right outside our neighborhood is being plowed.
Today it will be rainy and mild. Too bad, too, too bad…
I’ll miss the snow when its gone.
Have a good Tuesday!
Snow truck on the bigger street. It is a state road, and they have to be plowed as soon as possible after a storm
The cars on Sunday morning...
One of our cars, the one in the middle. OH the joy!
Peter is about to start digging...
Mu street around 9:30 on Sunday morning. Yes, you can call it a mess...
Sunday afternoon...On one of our walking paths.
Me on the golf course on Sunday afternoon. A selfie. HAHA. Here you can see how very deep the snow is. And my feet were not even on the ground.
