So its been a bit cold lately

Friday saw 8 inches of snow. Followed by another 12 inches on Saturday and 5 or 6 on Sunday.

The snow wasn't too bad as it came at a steady rate and the winds were moderate, so the biggest drifts are under three feet.

Shovelling for a half hour every six hours to remove 4 inches of snow was sufficient to keep ahead of the accumulation.

This morning we awoke to a low of -4 (with no wind chill as there was no wind).

The snow crunches under foot due to the cold. It has that same crunchy sound that sand gets in late summer when it dries out.
