Welcome to the last Sunday in January! I’ve been sharing some of my favorite local snow photos (most taken in January sometime in the past few years) but for today, I want to share The Big Snowfall that took place the first week of February, 2017.
Our youngest granddaughter had just been born, and Grandpa and I had been over to their house for a few days helping with the big girls while everyone adjusted. And the day we drove home, the biggest winter storm of the past fifty years had just begun. But we had to get home, the storm was going to worsen for days before it got over itself, hubby aka grandpa is an experienced winter driver, our car had good tires… so we went for it. It took considerably longer than usual, partially because all the passes were closed and we had to take the long way, but we made it home!
As you can see, even the deer found the road easier to traverse than the mountainsides… maybe partially because there were very few vehicles out and about.

This shows you how much snow we got in 24 hours. Imagine your average round patio table, thirty inches high like a normal table you’d sit at to eat. Then imagine it with “this” much snow beside it and on top. You can see the edge of the round top between the layers. The piece of wood sticking out of the snow on the left is our wheelbarrow handle!
