Winter Wonderland in Eastern Iowa


 
On February 1st winter came back after a very mild December and moderate January. The Feb 1 snow started as rain, then turned to wet snow and finally powdery snow backed by wind. In all I shoveled three times to seek the concrete driveway under a storm total of 11 inches. The photo above was between shovel one and two periods. Thanks to the Toro snow blower for doing the job. The weight of the snow sent branches curling over. Two weeks later some of that snow has melted and the limbs have rebounded. Spring is five weeks away and can't come soon enough.
