I haven't blogged recently because it seems like there's nothing to blog about. It's been snowing since mid-December. This is more snow than we had in our previous three winters in WV and more snow than I've ever seen in my life. We parked the ATV near the house and it seemed like a good idea at the time but now it just seems foolish. If the snow ever lets up we'll drive it over to the shed and park it under cover again.
The bridge that my husband built over the wet-weather creek. I'm not sure if it's a wet-weather creek or if we had amazing droughts our first two years here. The first year it flowed off and on. The second year it didn't flow much at all. Seems like it's been flowing most of the time this last year. Anyway the bridge is lovely and we use it all the time as we park on the other side of the creek from the house.
A close-up of the bridge railing showing how deep the snow was earlier. That's a 2x4 that the snow is piled upon.
I just thought this was a pretty cool picture. I'm easily amused (and amazed) by snow. My husband, a snow veteran, just laughs at me when I run around taking pics like this. He derives happiness from my enjoyment of the snow, even though he teases me about it. We have a lot of branches down in the yard now. Will be good for kindling next year.
