We can’t seem to shake the snow and cold despite the calendar telling us that it has been spring for more than three weeks. Our last storm dropped nearly 14″ of snow. It began on Thursday and continued overnight and into Friday. Wind gusts were over 50 mph. I stopped by Canal Park to check out the waves on my way to work. My photos don’t nearly capture the height of the waves, the strength of the wind or the spray of the water that traveled all the way to my parked car. I didn’t stay long as I needed to go into work and remain somewhat presentable.
We dug ourselves out on Friday afternoon. The snowdrift that was once our driveway was nearly 30″ deep. Mike’s old snowblower struggled, but made it through the heavy snow. We also had a huge snowdrift that ended up hanging over the roof of our house.
Mike played a little snowball golf in the driveway. It’s going to be a long time before the golf courses open.
The heavy winds caused ice to blow in towards the harbor blocking the way for many ships. We spotted nine out on the lake at one time, along with a coast guard cutter clearing the way for them.
The forecast is for another 4-8 inches of snow tomorrow and the possibility of another storm in the middle of the week. I can’t wait. 😦
