The morning after


t’s all over now. Well, at least for about two or three days. According to the official reading from Dulles Airport, the recent blizzard dumped 32.4 inches of snow on the Central Shenandoah Valley. That’s a lot of snow.

But the snow ended last evening shortly after dark. And this morning we woke to a beautiful winter wonderland and hours of shoveling. But don’t worry—this afternoon I received an alert from my weather source. Another large snow storm is expected to begin Tuesday morning. They are forecasting that it will drop at least 5 inches and possibly more than a foot over the course of that storm. I don’t know what has happened, but apparently the global climate change, formerly known as global warming, has brought arctic temperatures and precipitation to Virginia. Who woulda thunk?

But while we wait for that storm to arrive, this is what we woke up to today:

This was the view from our bedroom window this morning
The house across the street
Great texture
Our front walk
The view directly across the street from our front door
Our house – and lots off snow
