The 1st of February

I know it's the third of February, but it was still spitting snow on the first (not good picture-taking weather).

We had two small additional snowstorms this week for a total of about 5-6 inches. So that brings our 06-07 winter to somewhere between 50-55 inches of snow. This is about twice the average annual snowfall! Considering that Santa Fe has had below average snowfall for years (let's not quibble about what that does to the "average"), this has been an amazing winter.

The photo above shows a view down the street from my driveway.

The photo to the left shows the front yard. This is on the shady side of the house so there's still a lot of snow there--across the street the front yard snow is pretty much gone. And trees are still bare; I do expect to have buds to show you by March 1st!

The sharp-eyed among you will notice that the pile of snow in the last photo is in nearly the same location as the leaf oval (topic of a previous post).
