Lexi Left Lingering Layers

She began early.  In fact, when I got up at 5:05 am, there was just a dusting on the deck. But it was coming down fast and hard and accumulated quickly, sticking to everything. The Pres had told me to wake him once there was 4 inches of that heavy, wet, white stuff on the ground.  That was at 8:00 am.  (He still insists on plowing the gravel road and our two neighbors' driveways for $20.00, although this year, he did increase his fee to $25.00.)


And so, off he went, wearing his one piece, camo printed, dry plus suit.  However, the visibility was so bad, I could hardly keep an eye on him.  Can YOU see him in the top left of this first photo?  Sticking my head out the front door to listen for the ATV to get a general idea of what direction to look helped tremendously.  Just because his heart is strong this year doesn't mean I don't worry!





 Other than seeing the birds...of all shapes and sizes...trying to fit into our little globe feeder regardless of the visibility, we just watched it snow, and snow.  Finally, it stopped around 5 pm.  We'd received 12 inches of heavy, wet, white stuff.  (can you see that it even clung to my fence making it appear as if we have boards when that section is just wire?)


While Winter Storm Lexi left lingering layers of snow, ice and branches along our road, she gave us only her beauty.

it does look very pretty. No way could I spot the Pres in that picture. That wet heavy stuff is always the worst I think. Yeah it's pretty but what a pain when you have to go out in it

Somehow I missed news of winter storm Lexi and apparently she missed us to.
Your winter wonderland is beautiful.

ATV's are not any where near my favorite things...Can we ever stop worrying for our loved ones? That is something my mom did so much...yikes, I think I inherited my mommy's big ole worry gene. LOL. The snow pictures are beautiful. Take care , be safe. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Such pretty snow shots! And even better if someone else shovels it out of the way...

The wet snow we received on Friday was lovely because we did not have to worry about snow clearing. I suspect that Joe enjoys plowing it and no Incould not really see him in the collage. Yes, I can understand how you would worry when he's out there, JP.

Oh my, that was some heavy wet snow to make "boards" on you wire fence! Nope, I can't find your hubby out plowing in the picture. It sure is all very beautiful though. :)

You sure did get a lot of snow, didn't know your storms had names though.

It's good you can plow yourself out and don't have to wait for someone else to do it! It does look like heavy snow. It's pretty though. :)

Beautiful collages of a beautiful snowy wonderland.
I love the wonders of a fresh snow.
This winter had no snow in the Netherlands.
Best regards, Irma

Snow is always lovely. Then we have to deal with it. We have had our share of snow this winter. Hopefully some will melt this week. Loved your photos. Coming to you from Mosaic Monday. Glad I stopped to chat for a moment.
