View from theTable

Today I woke up to snow.
I was expecting it, but not like this. 
A lot of our snow storms in this area tend to be in high wind.
That makes for a lot of high drifts but not so much left on the ground.
Yesterday and last night were windy so I expected more of that,
but, to my surprise the wind stopped in the night.
I miss the calm lightly falling snow that can be so peaceful.
Thankfully I had it all to myself this morning while I shoveled a path to the bus stop.
I knew it wasn't done snowing but I shoveled anyway for my kids and the few others that cross our path
and past the neighbors to the street.
When I finished there was another half inch on the ground.
It's snowing harder now, faster and bigger clumps.
already there is another 2 inches plus accumulated.
I measured it with my trusty ruler. 
The snow on the little table on the back porch is already past 7 inches.
But for a little while I had the pre-light soft and serene snow,
perfect, and all to myself.

Update:  What a Difference a (half) Day Makes.

the above picture was taken about 7:30 - 8:00 am.
I measured the snow on top of the little table at over 9 in.  
The picture below was taken at 1:30 pm.

My post for today was on this same topic because I also feel like we rarely have snow on the ground! But I can't believe the picture of your stool this morning and then later in the day. I guess we should be happy it's melting???
