Snowed Under!

Well, a slight exaggeration. But it sure feels like it, considering just how long this snow has been around - a good number of months now, with no thaw in sight. And we are hoping for a gentle, lengthy thaw, or many of us are going to end up with flooded basements!

Even the squirrels are desperate...too much snow to find their hoardings from the beginning of winter. They are now reduced to the seeds dropping from the bird feeders above. The reindeer looks like he is still smiling, but I think he is actually gritting his teeth. Unfortunately, his owners are unable to reach the electrical cord to bring him in. Our whole neighbourhood still looks like Christmas...decorations everywhere. The Christmas lights we spread across the bushes in front of the house are totally buried.

There is at least a foot and a half of snow around us all in this neighbourhood. Not counting the piles from shoveling.

Oh, the indignity of it all...
