Just so happened, the 'right' combination of wind, and cold, and snow happened this week over Syracuse - and my house. It started this past weekend. It's Wednesday and it hasn't stopped snowing yet.
There is a little landing just outside the back door that leads down three or four steps to the back yard. Small railing. In the summer, it's the easiest access to the patio. In the winter, this landing becomes a wind magnet, often creating interesting shapes with falling and drifting snow.
For some reason, on Monday evening, I thought the amount of snow accumulated on the railing was rather 'amusing.' So I opened the door and snapped a pic. Little did I know what might come next.
This was last night. Yup. The two snow blobs are now one big blob. Snow's not done yet.
Another 6-8" of snow is expected today and another 8-10" tonight.
At least I have fabric, thread and a working sewing machine. And heat.
Is it Spring yet?
