Too much snow

Beginning of winter. Light covering of snow.

Just settling down into our now furnished and comfy apartment… and it began to snow. It was fun at 1st, playing in the slowly falling drizzle in about 30’F…

Star cracks on frozen pond.

Took a walk through the private reserve on Steeplechase property. Nice little park with benches, streams and pond.

Notice these star shaped cracky patterns on the frozen pond and wondered about them. We deduce that some residents came walking and threw pebbles on the water just as it was a thin freeze. Now even the cracks are frozen over solid. I threw pebbles and they just skid over the ice. Too late to make my own star.

Nice solid bridge.

Cross over on that very solid timber bridge to St Ledgers Woods, a adjacent private community that shares this private reserve. Steeplechase is in the background in this picture, somewhere in that cluster is our rental.

Clear day after snow storm.

Weeks later, light flaky snow became more like the blizzard variety. Lots of wind, driving snow and wind chill … less fun, but still in the low 30s… Still manage to drive Fordie to Lowes and bought some 2x4s, but look at the snow piles.

Every property must have and run their snow plows so that the residents can go to work/shopping/emergency… and every mall must do the same so that customers can get there. And the city plowers clears the major roads constantly. Seems like a pretty fine tuned operation. We decided to call this snow management 🙂 … Interesting to watch all that work to make it possible for people to continue with daily living despite weather…

I build this snow man village.

Then it stopped snowing and sun was coming thru in the shorter daylight hours…. The irony is clear sunny days are also the coldest days… typically less than 10’F. Scarves and mittens are needed to walk 1/2 mile from the parked car to the office building.

Me and my creations.

Well, get over it! And enjoy our time here in upstate NY while it last…. I think that to myself, hoping that it will make me feel better …  So lets put on more layers and go play in the snow 🙂 …

Indulge and built a whole snowman village… that was fun.

Yup, we definitedly have no plans to make this one of our basecamps.
