Well, if you are from Connecticut, you KNOW we are buried under TONS of snow. But for those of you who are not--especially our snowbird friends--I thought you might like to see what you are missing.
This storm brought the total snowfall in the month of January to the highest that Connecticut has recorded since we started measuring snowfall 106 years ago. Before the storm, 59” had already fallen, and this storm added more than twenty inches. Snowbanks are so high that driving in Connecticut has become a challenge. Folks shoveling the piles left at the ends of their driveways are tossing snow higher than their heads! If you squint a bit, you can just barely see me at the end of our driveway--BEHIND the snowpile!

I have created a video of the day for your bemusement. Interspersed among my photos of our yard are these two plein air paintings as well as three more. I wonder which will be your favorite? I hope you enjoy the video.
