It has been snowing for about 24 hours here, although it didn’t really start snowing hard until late yesterday afternoon. Right now, we’ve had about 25 inches of snow and it’s not supposed to stop until later today, so we could get another few inches.
I’ve heard that Inuits have more than 100 words for snow, each describing a different type of snow. This snow is much worse than the one last month. That snow was light and fluffy. This snow is heavy and very wet. It all has to do with the temperature at the time of the snow. It was in the low 20’s last month, but in the 30’s for this storm. As I walked Connor this morning, I saw loads of large branches down and the snow was heavy on the wires, not a good thing.
The oddest thing about this storm was the huge thunder and lightning storm we had in the middle of the night. Connor was not a happy puppy, as he hates thunder. It went on for about an hour or more. This is my wee back garden at about noon today. I’d say this is a bit more than two feet! SNOMG *You have to say this out loud* (Snow-my-god!)
