We haven’t had any more snow for a couple of days, but it’s been below freezing most of the time, so what’s here isn’t significantly melting. The forecast calls for more snow this weekend, so the current stuff will solidify into a layer of ice, with fresh snow on top.
Here are a few more snowy pictures, from yesterday and today.
Gobs of snow on a dogwood tree:
Snow on the beehives, with icicles hanging off the roof. The snow is melting above the brown one in the foreground, which is a good sign of warm bees inside. It isn’t melting as much on the other hive, which may mean they aren’t doing so well, or the roof might just be a better insulator:
Looking up at the ceiling of the berry cage. It’s holding up nicely so far, though I worry about its capacity to cope with lots more snow. But I’m not going to try cleaning it off; I want to see what it can handle, and will repair later if needed:
Some interesting graupel patterns on the frozen pond:
The pond and snow-covered trees beyond:
Me shoveling the snow from the driveway, so Jenn could go out (the car is parked inside the shop, for now, though she’ll start parking it in the breezeway next to the shop, so I can work on the duck house in there):
Icebergs sliding off the hoop house:
Morning sun through the trees:
Frozen garden ornament, with the brown gazebo in the background:
Interesting morning light, with sparkly snow, and snow-covered trees beyond the field:
Frozen small pond:
