Yesterday, we received our first snow storm of the winter. We received about 3 inches of your basic heavy, wet, heart-attack variety snow. Because it is so wet and heavy, it will give you a heart attack if you try to shovel it. It is certainly pretty to look at. With the temps a bit warmer today, we’ll see how long it lasts. Our only casualty was a stately birch tree in the backyard that was bent over with the weight of the snow. We hope it will bounce back.
