It's Reached That Point In The Winter

True.



Between what we've cleared, and what the snowplow has pushed into the yard, and onto the shoulder ...

Well sure, if you want to live somewhere small ... Give me that one, sir - it's all I've got, in February.

Howdy,
Looks like someone from down in Valdez took that picture!
My son said Anchorage is supposed to get one whole day, of no snow tomorrow. LOL

Take care, be safe.
God bless.

Griz, I've got piles that big at both ends of my driveway. Between the large clumps of icy snow, and the large boulders at the corners of the drive, those piles are going to sit right there until they melt, too!

Heh. We need more precip, I expect. But by the look of the extended forecast it's going to have to get way colder the last couple of weeks in March for it to come down white. At this point we're really close to being done with winter. And once again I went walking today in a t-shirt and without a jacket.

Yup. I remember in the late 70s the snow piles would get that high. Some higher. Hence the blinking lights on top of the school buses.
And other city vehicles too, if I remember right.
And a lot of that snow will be around forever where it's shady.

Be careful and God bless.

That high? Snow way! (A little pun never affected anyone adversely...)

Rev. Paul said...

PH, we're going to have more snow. It's a certainly, as our winter won't end until sometime in April, if it's an average year. Given that we've had above-average snowfall, it could be May. Your mileage may vary, and all that.

Linda, the piles here will always be like this, in an average year. The buses have strobes on top, and leaving for work isn't an issue (unless someone drives without headlights). But pulling out in the daylight hours is ... problematic.

TB, way. :) And I love puns, so bring it. :)

Rev. Paul,

Now that's just to much snow :-)

Rev. Paul said...

Sandy, ain't no way. :D

Rob said...

Our snow is gone here in mn

Rev. Paul said...

Rob - barring a fluke, ours will be here until late April.

Looks similar to Steamboat Springs, CO with an average of 35' of snow each winter. We would plow our driveway out to US 40 and the plow drivers would unload their plow in our driveway. Fun times, not.

Rev. Paul said...

Understood & agreed, WSF. It's not that this part of Alaska gets huge amounts of snow; it's just that it stays until spring. Or Valdez, AK where they get 75 feet of snow in winter. There, it gets shoved into the ocean.
