Check out the roof! Amazing snow even on top of the window, under the eave.

A peek under the eave, the snow curling down, and the wind chime I got in Door County, on our third anniversary.

The wall along the back patio - the little table I sit at most of the summer, a shelf where potted plants sit in warmer days, the roof.

The picnic table in out little gazebo - we learned last winter that we must take the fabric off the top of it - under the snow you'll see a tarp on the tabletop, that's because Fibi loves to sit there and observe the world.

Our roof STILL looks this way even though I took this photo on Sunday. :0)

The Christmas cow now has an igloo! You can still barely see the buck.

Playing with the snowblower is fun! We actually don't bring it out that often, only for big snows or if we're in a hurry.

Usually we shovel, all three of us together, or me if the guys are gone. Dennis has even gotten in his share of shoveling. I still laugh at our first winter in Wisconsin - he was always gone during snowfalls and the shoveling fell to me. The first time he was home when it snowed he bought a blower, lol.

Silly snow thought it was done with fun once it fell. It had no idea it was going to fly again.

  1. My past job as a truss designer makes me cringe when looking at the snow on the roof knowing that trusses down your way weren't designed for loads like that. This neck of the woods they may hold & further up north they plan for that. Best case scenarios: ceiling crack or leaks. Worst case: truss collapse.
