Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

December Snow Storm

We were hit with a major snow storm that started on Friday night and lasted through Saturday night. To keep ahead of the snow Dan snow blowed the driveway twice. I shoveled the section next to the garage three times. We woke this morning to another 4-6 inches which we took care of this morning. We salted it and then took a walk down the driveway and up the lane to see if the newspaper was there. It wasn't but Saturday's mail was. Our neighbor said the mailwoman came in the midst of the storm being driven by someone else.

Here are some photos.

Entry to the lane


The lane looking down towards us.

Bottom section of our driveway. Dan couldn't get to the pavement here. It doesn't get much sun so we hope the salt will help.


Straight away section.

The house through the woods on top of the hill.

The curve and the hill.

The steep part of the driveway. Fortunately at this time of year the sun hits it in the morning and the snow will melt.

The house with piles from shoveling.


The pond. The bench is covered with snow.

The front door before it was shoveled out.
