Holy crap, Batman! Saturday morning 05/08/20 we woke up to gusty 40mph bone chilling winds driving a heavy snow against the house and into the trees.
We got over 5 inches on the ground, and the tree limbs were bent with the weight of the heavy snow. And I'm sure that wind knocked a bunch of tress down somewhere. Wow! The 9th of M-a-y....
The snow is really coming down hard — and mounting up.
The high winds just plastered the snow against the porch screens.
Sue couldn't stand it, and was out the door with her camera and Beau to hike through the woods behind the house.
Stopping to get a picture of one of the forsythia bushes she had planted.
Sue and Beau with his orange "Im not an f'n deer, bear, turkey, pheasant, or moose!" doggie jacket heading back into the woods behind the screen house.
The snow was wet and heavy, and it was really cold. But what a scene....
A covered apple branch.
By 12:28 the storm had blown itself out, and the sun and winds had started to peal off the layers of snow already.
This is how much the snow cover had been dissipated by 1:09.
And by 3:36 you wouldn't even have guessed in a million years that the yard had been 5 inches deep in snow just a few hours before! Sue and I even took Beau for a short walk down the road.
Regardless of the snow being gone, it was still really chilly, and the wind continued to howl through the trees for the rest of the night so a fire in the wood stove was just great!
