I was out and about last night until around seven in the evening. By the time I returned home the snow was coming down pretty hard and the road visibility was getting rather poor. At that point we maybe had 3 or 4 inches of snow but it was coming down hard and covering the roads about as fast as they were plowed.
It sounds like we had about 15” of new snow last night and by looking out the door I would guess that to be pretty close. It’s nice and wet and heavy but that’s about to change. Much colder temps are on the way and the winds are about to kick it up a few notches to 30 - 40 mph.
Breakfast with the boys was still on this morning but relocated to the Apple Tree Restaurant. I opted out on the breakfast today figuring it might be tough to get out of the driveway. With a storm like this it’s not unusual to have four foot drifts in our driveway.
This is some really sticky snow. The evergreen trees are just loaded. BTW my buddy Rod Melotte was in the showroom on Monday taking photos. Rod is an outstanding photographer/artist. You can check out his work at Favorite Links to your left - Melotte Photo Imagery. Check out his photos of the Wisconsin State Capital. Stunning.
We are lucky to have an attractive yard just about any time of year. It looks pretty with a coat of fresh snow too.
The shops and the barns are pretty loaded up with snow. With the high winds coming in today it doesn’t pay to get too excited about plowing. I’ll probably let it blow around a bit first.
Here we have a new arrival. It’s an original Portland Cutter built by Owosso Carriage & Sleigh in Owosso MI. The original paint and mohair upholstery are in excellent condition for its age. We have cleaned and detailed the sleigh and it’s all ready for display or use. A nice rare and unique item for $1,595.
Have a great Wednesday!
