We've been having some winter weather here in New Jersey this week! Storm #1 was snow, and it came through on Monday:
Storm #2 involved some additional snow, but a lot of sleet and freezing rain. It came through Tuesday night and Wednesday:
My poor little baby pine tree got dumped on in the Monday storm.
But with the extra snow plus the ice, it looks like it's drowning. Its little cardboard-and-foil star, which I should have waded out there and collected long ago, is seriously askew.
I have some more pictures of the yard in both storms. What the heck, it's not like I've been able to go anywhere! (I did make a break for the grocery store at lunchtime Tuesday. It was ugly, but would have been uglier after work.) Grab some hot cocoa and join me below the glowing orange heating coil, and we'll feel glad to be indoors.
Snow from the Monday storm:
Ice from the Wednesday storm:
Did I make you chilly? Sorry! What's your weather been like?
