We woke up this morning on the second day of Spring to about 10 inches of snow on the ground with more coming down. The kids were really excited and happy that school was cancelled. They quickly got dressed in their warm winter clothing and headed outside to throw snowballs at each other and begin construction of their snow fort.
It was a very wet and heavy snow and we started hearing all kinds of creaking and cracking from the trees due to the weight of the snow. A few limbs had already given way and landed on my truck. In the backyard we heard more cracking and saw a large tree weighed down with snow dipping perilously close to your power line.
I grabbed a rake and started brushing off snow to ease the burden and try and save ourselves from losing power. Thankfully the tree stood strong.
Tonight they are predicting another 3-5 inches of wet snow so it will be interesting to see what the morning commute brings. Hopefully no more downed trees!
