Around the Block on a Snowy Day

There are Men At Work in the street. Lots of fluorescent green, bright orange and yellow. Trucks and jackhammers and bobcats and bigger. Hose lines and pumps.

Since I lolligagged around last night instead posting my snow pictures, when I heard all this noise going on, I thought I'd just wait until this evening and tag on storm-aftermath photos as well. However, there are going to be too many of those to sort through and too many to add to my snow walk, so I'm waiting on those for the next post. At this point I'm only speculating on what's going on out there, so will I have the nerve to go out and chat up the workers?

I finished my Saturday blog rooting for snow and noting that some was falling as I was going to bed. When I opened an eyeball Sunday morning, here's what I saw.

Kitty paw-prints lead me to believe they are spending time under the table.

Some time ago I put some towels on one of the chairs so kitties could sleep there under shelter. I hope they are. Maybe I'll put the washed and dried kitty bed under there, too, where it should stay drier than under the bench tarp.

After I had my Sunday breakfast I went for a walk around the block, the route that doesn't go under the trees that drop piles of snow with a thud. Love the contrasts here:

Beautiful skies

Wood pile and sunny logo

Whoops! We thought it was spring.

A bright spot

Heading back up my street. It runs into my house at the end.

 Not really. It bends to the right past my house.

An hour after I arrive back home, it's snowing again, which it did on
and off for the rest of the day. But there was no real accumulation.

See you soon.



  1. I love when the snow clings to the trees, it's my favorite!

    1. It's so great to wake up to and so silent, especially if it follows clattering rain.

  2. So what were the Men at Work doing?

    1. I'll make my guesses when I sort the photos out.

  3. I LOVE the pics of the snow! It's so reminiscent of my life a month ago. I sure love it even if it was super freezing cold. Snow makes everything look so wonderful. Now we are in the rainy season and I hate the rain. At least in the snow you can make snowmen and angels and take beautiful photos. The rain just makes everything messy!

  4. Isn't it odd to see the spring blooms covered in snow! Beautiful though. It was 80 degrees here yesterday. Should be close to that again today. Yikes! What is summer going to feel like if this is spring?
