Our First Big Snowfall of the Season – Almost 3 FEET!

Well, I guess it was inevitable to have snow living in New England – New Hampshire, USA! The ski resorts are besides themselves with all this lovely white stuff.

When it began snowing it looked like a winter wonderland! I love it as long as I don’t have to go out or drive in it.

Here are some photos I snapped from all the windows in my home. It was too blustery to go out and capture it.

Snow on deck covered our table and the bird feeders
Notice depth of snow on table on left – looks like 3 feet!
Another view of deck – snow is more than half way up the railing

Now the fun begins as my husband has to shovel it off the deck. I bought him a power shovel a few years ago but it only works on six inches or less. Unfortunately, it did not work on all this snow! Poor guy he had to do it by hand. I offered to help, in case you are wondering, but I have a back shoulder and back so he wouldn’t let me. Mostly because he didn’t want to listen to me complain later. Haha!

Snow almost gone! Taking a break!

Well, we survived our first snowfall and it was a whopper! But it does look beautiful and serene. I love it for a little while until it gets the dirty grungy look as it melts and mixes with the sand, salt and gravel on the roads.

I hope wherever you live that you are warm, safe and happy in your homes. We are blessed to have homes and feel safe. Please pray for those who do not.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I appreciate your kind support and wish you and yours a wonderful holiday whichever one you choose to celebrate.


Blessings & Hugs,

  1. We had about the same here in upstate New York. Let’s hope that we have a break, at least for a little while.

  2. I’m jealous of all that snow! We’ve not had any yet this year, and rarely get as much as that in one go. Most years we don’t get that much all year, and I love snow.

  3. Wow, so much snow. but thank you for sharing, i enjoyed to look at the pictures, since we don’t have snow here.
