Friday night and Saturday, we got about a foot of snow. The timing was pretty good on this one for several reasons. It didn't mess up my commute. Although it was snowing heavily by the time I went home Friday night, there was almost no traffic. Saturday, we stayed pretty close to home all day, and got to shovel out at our leisure. Mid week, it's expected to plunge into the deep freeze with lows south of -10°F. The thick blanket of snow will provide nice insulation for my garden. Today we went to the Fen for some winter photography.
The picture above demonstates one of the interesting fen features. The springs emerge at a constant 53°F year round. No matter how cold it gets, the areas right around the springs don't freeze.
By the time we left, we were getting peeks at the sun. Florida is in 2 weeks and 4 days!
