The snow stopped yesterday and the morning started with lots of bright sunshine. Even though it was about 15 degrees out, I bundled up and headed out while the snow was still sticking to the trees. One of my neighbors left the neighborhood and I walked in his tracks to the corner. This first shot is from the corner looking back at our house (on the left).
He went up the hill, but I wanted to head down, so I took a path that apparently was made by the local deer. (I could only see deer tracks). It was still hard work and when their track turned off to the right, I was left to cut through the snow on my own. I made it up to the top of hill and got some gorgeous pictures.
I made the decision to head down from the hill to Harding Road, which was somewhat plowed. The hill was steep and at the bottom the snow was up to my hips. I almost got stuck in the snowbank and had to maneuver carefully to get out. I'm only glad that no one drove by as it involved me rolling off of the bank. Having made it that far, I continued down to Scott's Cove via the plowed road. After my little incident with the snowbank, I dared not go into the unplowed parking lot or anything closer to the water. My picture taking was all from the road.
I continued around the road to the far side of our neighborhood. I figured that i could make it on the sidewalks or roads (assuming someone had tried to drive down them). Lots of people were out shoveling their driveways and cars. I talked to one man who works for NASA as a weather modeler and he said that we might get up to a foot of snow on Tuesday. He said he couldn't confirm it as he had lost internet and cable access.
When I got back home -- 2 1/2 hours later -- schools for the county had been cancelled for tomorrow. I can't imagine that the roads and parking lots will be clear anytime soon.
