These are the trees in my backyard.
They look so pretty!
We've been so lucky this winter and only had a couple of mild snowstorms, but our luck has run out. It started snowing yesterday and we have about 11 inches and it's suppose to snow until the weekend. Next Tuesday there is another snow storm that is due to hit us. The kids are loving it!! It isn't that cold outside and the snow is great packing snow. Earl on the other hand is working his butt off doing snow removal.
I guess there isn't much you can do about the snow when you live in Upstate NY though. I have to comend the cities around here though. The main roads are always plowed and salted right away and the side roads are done several times throughout any snow storm. They do a great job and try to keep our roads safe.
So today, I guess I'll keep drying the kids snow clothes, making hot chocolate and get started on a pot of soup so when Earl finally gets home he can try to unthaw.
