Heavy Load

The snow has been coming down now for two days.  At first it was very light and fluffy, but, with temperatures hovering around zero Celsius, it is getting compacted and very sticky.


This bush is just outside my back window.  It is a tall shrub – the snow level is about 3 1/2 feet (one meter) above ground level.  The  huge snow balls resting on the spent flower heads of wet snow pulled the branches down to the top of the drift.

I took this photo through my back window……. I can’t open the door because the snow is over two feet deep….. and deeper out in the back yard.  It will be a major winter-works project to get the door open again.
