The Snow Kept Coming!

We are one hundred miles north of Spokane, Washington and I know that if someone there reads this post they will scoff. They had 62" of snow in December, and we had less than half of that. But it was still very beautiful!! Usually when we get snow it starts to melt down in a few days, so it rarely lasts very long on the trees. But this time we had fluffy snow piling up for 3 full weeks. It was a true winter wonderland.

I put this ruler in the snow on our deck. It was fully covered after the next snowfall. What made it so interesting was to check how much snow had accumulated right after it finished snowing, then look at the ruler 24 and 48 hours later. The snow would settle as much as 2", without any melting temperatures!

It started to melt about 4 days ago, but here are some pics I took a few hours before it started to melt.
