No. Not that kind of hammered. No booze involved. No hammers or nails either.
Just snow. Lots and lots of snow.
And wind too.
So much wind that when I opened the front door there was a little tiny drift that snuck in under the so called weather stripping.
Out the front looking right.
Out the front looking left. I was surprised to see that the steps were relatively clear. That wind at work.
So I did what I normally do when showing you our lovely snow. I went to the back door and this is what met me. You can see the latch in the door jam just about where the snow ends on the left side.
And a close up of the snow in the yard. The wind brought all the snow to the back yard. The fence to the left is 6 feet. so that means that I have about 5 feet of snow in my yard.
Spring is suppose to start in less than a month. Not in my back yard!
In the mean time, schools are closed across the province, the college is closed, UNB and STU are closed, the buses are off the roads, doctors offices are closed, my dentist called and my appointment was canceled, RCMP have issued a warning for people to stay off the roads and travel at your own risk. Which means that if you venture out and get in trouble, they are not required to come help you. The fellow that is in charge of roads and streets (sidewalks too I'm guessing) was on the radio this morning and said that the drifting is very bad in some cases reaching over 6 feet.
And the snow and winds are to continue throughout the day.
Please don't tell me of your crocuses. I don't think that I could stand it.
