Buffalo Mountain

I finally made it up our “driveway” today. I put that word in quotations because it’s really a wide drift of snow about two feet deep. And I did cheat by walking along the adjacent cabbage field. That was boot-deep and exhausting. Took the dog, a shovel, and the camera.

The sky is one of the most brilliant shades of blue I’ve ever seen, and the snow a blazing white. I noticed Buffalo Mountain in the distance, how postcard-perfect it looked, and snapped away. I actually got a couple of decent shots in spite of being snowblind. I was going to take some shots of the “driveway” but really there’s nothing to see but a wide white swath.

I managed to shovel a path from the top of the driveway to the road, so we do have access to civilization (re: my job tomorrow, or an emergency beer run). The storm is over, but we might not see the driveway for awhile. Maybe spring will make an early appearance? In spite of the recent storm, it doesn’t hurt to hope.

    Beautiful! All dug out at my house but still waiting for a plow on the street. Hope you can get out tomorrrow (unless you want to play hookie).

    Thank you. I can get out tomorrow, but I’ll have to walk up the driveway to get the car, and it’s an eighth of a mile long. We have to get professional help to plow us out, because it’s too deep and too long to do by hand. Other than that, I’m good to go! I’m glad you’re all dug out, and I’m glad this storm is over. 🙂
