Snow, snow, snow
March 10, 2008
We’re on our way to setting a new snowfall record in the Ottawa Valley after 56 cm of the white stuff came down on the weekend. Since winter has started, 413 cm of snow has fallen. That’s 13.5 feet. The highest record was 441 cm set in the winter of 1970-1971. Here is my poor apple tree half-covered in snow.
In the backyard the railing is about to go under, the tomato cage we usually use to gauge the snowfall is completely buried and my 124-quart wintersown storage containers are barely distinguishable from their surroundings.
I can’t even see the top of my composter on the back fence. I can’t wait for spring.
