Idyll Haven, took time out of a long day clearing snow to record the scene. Here is her patio, featuring 23 inches of snow atop her outdoor dining table and chairs.
Sue spent Saturday clearing her driveway, walkways to the side and front doors, and paths on this patio for her dog to frolic. And, she had to shovel snow away from her outdoor grill and hot tub, and clear snow from the fire hydrant in front of her house.
Sue reports that the snow on her front walkway was up to her waist. She had to break through four foot mounds where the town's snow plows had piled snow at the start of the front walkway.
For those who are not familiar with New England architecture, this photograph of Sue's garage shows the advantage of our steeply pitched roofs in shedding heavy snowfalls. Sue, thanks for lending me this photograph. I hope your muscles are all recovered from Saturday's workout.
I was in Florida playing golf, but I was thinking about my friends in New England . . .
