The return of the winter of our discontent

January was very mild. The big storm that hit the mid-Atlantic missed us, much to our relief. The light snow we had gotten after Christmas entirely melted away leaving the ground bare and squishy. It was kind of like having the first week of March for a month. Now the winter is back. We’ve been getting wet, heavy snow since last night. There’s about six inches on the ground now. We’ve been out to shovel a couple of times already; we’ll probably have to go out another time or two before it’s all over.

About six inches, give or take

It was getting a little depressing to have winter without any snow on the ground, but after last year it has been a relief not to be shoveling every day. It now looks like there are a couple more storms that may hit us in the next week. We’ll see how things go from here.
