After Our Snow Storm

Around our house after our snow storm. January 30 - 31, 2010.

Since it is now February 1, I guess it’s safe to say that we survived the January storm.  It turned out to be quite an experience for this part of Tennessee.

As best I can tell we got about five inches of snow, followed by about an inch of ice, followed by another inch or so of snow.  The snow started late Friday morning and continued through Saturday, although it was mostly flurries at the end.

As many of you know, we live on a hill, and although there is usually a fair amount of up and down traffic, except for a snow plow we had no traffic at all until yesterday (Sunday) afternoon when a single car went down the hill.  It was the quietest we’ve seen that road in the six-plus years we’ve lived here.

Yesterday was a beautiful day with blue skies and temperatures near 30°.  I was able to get about  2/3 of the driveway cleared.  That, and another pass by the snow plow, makes me feel we could get out if we had to, although I’m not sure we could get back in.  We need a couple more good days for me to feel comfortable about getting up the hill.

The two pictures on the left above were taken Saturday.  It was very cloudy, but Betsy and I got out to look around and take some pictures.  The other three pictures were taken yesterday when we had that beautiful bright blue sky.  The middle picture shows some of the ice-coated trees against that sky.

By the way, Betsy says she’s had enough snow for this winter — she’s ready for Spring!

    George: What neat photos of the snow. Take it easy clearing off the driveway. It can really make you tired especially if there is ice mixed in. You now have more snow then me.

    A wonderful collage! My favorite being the ice on the pine needles. On clicking, you can see that some of the water was forming drops when it froze. And a great picture of Betsy, just so happy in all the snow!

  12. Cheryl Says:

    So glad that Betsy got her wish for snow fulfilled, now on to seeing your beautiful roses start to bloom!!

  13. Pam Says:

    Those are wonderful shots, George. Snow is so pretty when it first comes down but after awhile you just want it to go away. I’ve been there and done that 🙂

  14. Jen Says:

    Great collage.
    Betsy sitting on a park bench in the middle of it all with
    a smile on her face…..priceless.

  15. Linnea Says:

    Oh…beautiful blue skies after the snow storm. Glad you two were able to get out and enjoy the gorgeous winter scenes! It won’t last forever!

  16. Rose Says:

    I still want one good snow, but other than that I am ready for spring, too!

  17. Mary Says:

    You had worse weather than we did. Our snow started melting the next day. I see a possibilty of more coming this week. I hope they are wrong this time! You have made a nice collage of your photos. A nice memory of this year’s snow storm.

    Lovely collage of your snowy world! Somehow I can’t imagine going outside in 30 degree temps … seriously but I do love the picture of Betsy sitting outside with a huge smile … glad she’s had her fill of snow 😉
    Hugs and blessings,
