Freshly Cleared Skies & Driveways

We've had a dry winter so far, but we've finally had some snow over the last couple of days, and March and April are typically our snowiest months. These fresh photos were taken in our yard this morning.
After the storms move by, we usually get beautiful blue skies - we usually get around 300 sunny days each year!
While we're happy to have the snow, there is a drawback...
Luckily I have a snowblower so it's not as much work as it seems - the shovel is only for the places the snowblower doesn't reach. But it looks impressive there! Visit Skywatch Friday for more photos with skies, blue or otherwise.

  4. Had wind here with a little snow that created some drifting--enough to close school today. Thankfully I didn't have much snow to shovel, though. I do love our bright blue skies!♥♫
