SNOW DAYS, 2019

Sorry to get out of order, date-wise. Here’s some photos from Feb. 21-22, 2019, when we experienced our first substantial snow storm since we started living here full-time in 2010. Oldtimers say the last time it snowed like this was in 2008.

Next day (Feb. 22), looking south towards the Park: snow has finally started to melt. Almost all of the plants in our backyard vegetable garden were undamaged. Chard endures!
