With a name like Linus this storm just conjurs up images of wrapped up in quilts reading books and drinking tea or cocoa. Although the thoughts danced through my head . . . the driveway was calling to be shoveled and the dinner made . . . I love the night or day immediately following a big storm. It is very quiet outside and the earth is blanketed in such thick white downy snow. Often there are not any animal tracks yet and it is pristine. This was definitely the case with this storm. I only wished I had more time to be out in it but work was calling early the next morning . . . all said and done I think we got about 18 inches, then we keep getting 2-3 inches each day on top of it. The piles are getting pretty big. The wood pile is bigger still though so we are in good shape. We do not have a snow blower so we shovel the old fashioned way, a little at a time and the it is all done.
Hoping everyone is snug and safe for a 3 dog night- the opposite of the dog days of Summer I think .
