Yesterday's snow ended earlier than the weather forecasters said it would. We probably got four inches (10 cm) — not a big deal. The worst news is that the sub-freezing temperatures are supposed to last another week. We won't see much melting.
The pictures in this post are ones I took while it was still snowing yesterday. I went out for a walk with Callie during the hardest snowfall, and it was okay because we didn't stay out too long. Still, Callie was snow-covered by the time we got back home. Fortunately, she is obviously feeling a lot better. Her eyes are bright and she again has boundless energy.
This morning we are going to watch the Super Bowl in delayed broadcast and make a batch of Boston baked beans. Don't tell us who won! The beans with bacon, black treacle, and spices will fortify us against the cold weather. We are certainly paying now for the mild weather we had in November, December, and January.
I might try to get the car out and go to town tomorrow. Getting out our front gate when the ground is icy is not easy, and getting back up the hill if I make it down there in the first place is not obvious either. It will be interesting to see if the bread lady makes it up the hill tomorrow morning.
