accumulation

We thought the first big storm was quite something, with the deep, fluffy snow, gorgeous white landscape, and dramatic snow drifts.  Then more snow happened, and kept happening. The amount of snow now seems a little ridiculous, but it's still incredibly beautiful. Plus, with all the shoveling and snowshoeing, we are getting some good winter workouts.

Just for fun, here's progression of snow accumulation over the last two weeks, measured by our disappearing barn.





A few more photos, just because.
