SNOWMAGGEDON JAN. '17

We have set a record here for the most snow on the ground since 1892! And on the heels of it, we had record cold too!
These pix show 14 inches of snow, with a low of {minus!!!} -9!!

As always, click to biggify.


The first 2 pix are looking out the front window...



1 to 2.5 foot long icicles...

Out back, looking south...


The secret garden...

The snow cap on the retaining wall is also 14 inches...

Rose arbor...

Since our local road management company doesn't plow residential areas, a lot of people in our neighborhood were stuck at home. Our HOA finally {!!} decided to pay for a private company to come in and plow ~ too little too late!
