Digging Out

February 14th, 2017

Sunday and Monday we had a big nor’easter hit us here in Maine. We spent a large portion of the day yesterday digging some things out, more digging will be done today. It’s hard to say how much snow we got, with the gusting winds and drifting it’s waist high in some places and only a foot in others. If I had to guess I’d say we got between 18-24″.

It’s like mother nature was procrastinating this year. We’ve gotten 3-4 feet of snow in the past week and there’s another 15 inches or so predicted for tomorrow. I am happy that there’s finally enough snow for snowshoeing, which is one of my favorite winter activities.

What’s the worst kind of weather you get in your garden?

    Three feet of water over my garden?? That’s probably the worst weather. LOL, don’t want to see that ever again.

    Enjoy the snow!
