Nor’easter in New England! Snow, Snow and more Snow!

Wow! We are getting tons of snow on 3/14/23 here in New England. This is our first big storm of the season to arrive this winter. Better to have it in March than in January or February since it will melt sooner because spring is coming, temps will be rising.

Notice the amount of snow in the large photo compared to the snow depth in the first photo below. We are expected to continue to get more snow over the next day or so with another storm in the near future. But we expect this in New England! It may sound crazy but there is nowhere else I would live!

This snow is a boost for our mountains and ski resorts and all those snow enthusiasts. I am not a skier or a snow enthusiast, but I do love to watch it coming down as long as I don’t have to be out in it or driving anywhere.

I didn’t venture out in this as you can see. I ran around from window to window to try and capture the beauty of it all – over two feet so far and more expected. Yikes! Of course, this is not the biggest snowfall we have ever had. I have seen much more. But I am thankful for every inch we get to help fill the wells and bring up the level of the aquifer.

We had a serious drought in New Hampshire this past summer and don’t want to see it again. Many people had problems with their wells drying up and the rest of us on city/town water could not water anything outside all summer. All this snow after melting will help fill some of the wells, aquifer and lakes, streams, rivers, etc. to prevent another drought.

Here are more photos I snapped a few minutes ago on 3/14/23 at 4:45 pm. You will notice that there is more snow then in the ones above!

Notice the two photos with the cardinals, one male red and one female red with brown at the feeder. Seeing the brilliant red of the cardinal against the snow takes my breath away!

Birds usually hide out in our deciduous evergreens but these trees are completely covered with snow and bending over and separating. Poor birds lost their place to take cover until the snow falls off the trees.

My husband filled all the feeders yesterday so that the birds would not go hungry during the storm. What a guy!

I hope you enjoyed my photos of all the snow. It’s time for me to go start dinner – Chicken Piccata tonight! Check my recipes for this and many other delicious meals.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Feel free to come back any time.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
