An Alberta clipper has been stalled by a Texas low which means this pretty little blob of colour which represents snowfall has been sitting on us all day. It's somewhere between -50 and 0C.
And it looks like this:
We've had about 26cm of snow.
That's about 10".
I've shovelled 3 times, Kevin 2 times and the Plow once. The plow won. All the street snow is on my cleared sidewalk, which you're supposed to keep cleared in case you have a cardiac arrest so the EMS people can get to you. I'm thinking if I try to remove the snow again - they won't be able to get here fast enough, so I'm not going to worry about it. Kevin will start serving martinis 5:00. So while I was figuring out which part of my back was twingiest, I saw the most remarkable thing. I could barely get my boots back on fast enough to show you.....
My Hamamelis is starting to bloom! A full month and a half ahead of its usual March 17th date. Amazing.
But, that's about all that's in bloom, so I retraced my steps.
Knocked off as much snow as I could. And am looking forward to tomorrow's scheduled sunshine to see if I can get a better photo of those little yellow petals in the snow.
