Another storm of the century! It seems that the weather folks get off on scaring the heck out of everybody with their forecasts. I think they get paid by the descriptive word. It was a big snowfall, no doubt but the high winds never materialized and we got towards the low end of predictions. Most important – no power outages. An inconvenience but not a disaster.

On the bright side the snow will act as an insulating blanket providing protection and then moisture to newly planted plants. Not that we are having drought conditions but this type of snow really replenishes the aquifers. Real benefits from the storm. Did anyone see the full moon? It was spectacular Saturday night with all the snow.
