The first three pictures were taken weeks ago and show how much snow was on the ground before the blast of 12 or more inches on January 28. I love moody shots and the first very grey one shows the auction barn from way back near the pond. The woodpile isn't one we created; it's just sitting in the woods. And there is a shot from near the back of the pond towards the house that I liked a lot.
The same hill is in both of the other pictures and it is all shoveled snow. After we had shoveled three times during the day Wednesday, I couldn't even throw the snow that high. I had cleared most of the upper driveway into the ridge across from the big hill and Ken had done the long drive out to the street. At 5:30 I quit, seriously asked him to leave the garage apron until the next day, and fumed while he finished the job, which took until 7:30 (after dark). If there is a pill for being ridiculous (aka stupid), they need to pass it out before snowstorms.

Can't believe you shoveled all that snow! Just doing a little bit of my walk wore me out! I'm not sure why you need to have so much cleared, but I wish I had Ken's energy! It does look pretty though. I'm glad you didn't seem to have the power outage problems, luckily I didn't either. Too bad it was too cold while I was there, would have been fun to walk and take photos in the woods. Maybe next time!
