The Snowstorm of 12-22-2013 Finally Arrived A Day Later

Yesterday we were supposed to have a big snowstorm.  Many places in our area had six or more inches of snow.  We didn't get all that snow.  We probably got three inches.  We were disappointed because we want to go snowshoeing on Christmas Day, and my husband has a new snowblower that he hasn't been able to use.  We were pleasantly surprised when we got up this morning.  We had another three inches of unpredicted snow overnight.  It was very pretty.




My husband finally got a chance use the new snowblower.  There wasn't as much snow as we thought, but enough to try it out.  We found out that we should have raked the leaves a lot better in the fall.  The leaves and pine straw made it a little more difficult, but it worked well.



We are all plowed out.  It looks like the temperatures will remain cold enough to keep the snow for a while.  In a month, I will be telling a very different story.  The first snows of winter are exciting, but after a while all we want is Spring.  That is the beauty of living in Wisconsin.  We have four distinct seasons, and we love it that way.
