Connecticut’s Winter Storm

This is the garden bench where I like to sit and enjoy a cup of tea in the morning (Not happening today!)

We have just experienced the first real winter weather in nearly two years here in Connecticut.  The roads are closed to all but first responders, in order to allow the highway crews to clear the up to three feet of snow that has fallen in our state.  The snowdrifts caused by the winds have made beautiful shapes around the yard.  We have power still, a near miracle as we usually lose power here with any serious weather event.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

The drift in front of the window where I’m taking the picture looks like whipped cream and the Spruce has a thick frosting of snow.

Here are the barn doors.

White-throated and Song Sparrows roost at night in the Boxwoods under this drift.  I hope they survived somehow.
