Snow, More Snow, and a Snow Bunny

A little more than a week ago and a few days after the official start of Spring, we had one of the largest March snowfalls on record in the St. Louis area.

The day before, the temperatures reached nearly 60 degrees.

But, early in the morning, the snow started to fall.

 Once it started falling, it came quickly.

There was lightning and thunder.  Thunder snow!

It was a wet, heavy snow.  Perfect for building snowmen and snow forts.  And tearing down tree limbs.

Hard and heavy to shovel.

We shoveled several times over the two-day period that it lasted.  Over six hours of shoveling snow the first day.  Followed the next day by another couple of hours of shoveling snow.

The snow lasted all day, into the night, and into the next day, too.

Last year at this time, we were already cutting grass and putting in flowers and the garden.

This heavy snowstorm was not considered a blizzard because there were no winds.  Thank goodness for that!

All of this occurred during the week that we were trying to move out of this house.  I can tell you one thing, we will not miss shoveling large driveways nor will we miss cutting a ½-acre yard.

But, we will miss our garden.  This baby bunny survived the snow storm  and was sitting in the garden bed next to a large snow drift waiting for something to eat.
