Still Snowed In

Daisy is a good indicator of the current mood regarding the Blizzard of 2015. Her first view of the snow resulted in amazement and enthusiastic leaping and frolicking. This morning, she paused for a moment on her landing and just stared. I thought I heard a sigh. Then she just went into her yard, took care of business and headed back in. The novelty is over.

IMG_1815We’re starting to feel the same way. We’ve yet to see a plow on our street. We live in an area called The Knolls. A pretty good indicator of the terrain. The access hill is relatively steep, so regular pick-ups with plow attachments can’t get up the hill until the town arrives with the heavy equipment. Guess we’re not a priority, because they haven’t arrived. Really grateful to our neighbor who used our snowblower to clear the driveway. The street is unusable, but at least the driveway has been cleared.There are a lot of unplowed driveways around here because people rely on plow services.

And we’re not alone. Schools are still out. It’s our understanding that many side roads are still untouched. This is okay for people like us. We’re comfortable. Power is on, so our computers work. Concerned by the fact that many are not so fortunate. Hopefully, today will be the day that things get back to normal.

IMG_1816Decided to snap a picture of the snowy yard viewed through the still life of summer arranged on the kitchen windows. Nice to see the shells that were gathered on warm, sunny days and to imagine the feel of sand beneath my feet.
