Different Snow

One of the things pointed out to me when we first moved to Montana was how I left the heat and humidity behind me.  And this just doesn't pertain to the summer.  It also applies to winter.  The snow here is 'dry'.  There isn't 'wet' snow, which is a good thing.  And this weekend we are expecting another 12 inches of snow.

One thing that has surprised me is that snow seems to 'evaporate'.  And a lack of icicles.  Most of the icicles I have seen are actually on the spruce trees.

And the snow twists into some really unusual shapes, like this 'wave' on top of the fencing in my backyard.

So now I own a snow shovel and YakTraks to keep from slipping.  I have to blaze a trail out to the alley and the trash cans with snow up to my knees.  And I have to shovel a path to the bird feeder in order to put out seed for the birds (and squirrels). 

At least, with the snow, I will be staying inside and working on my homework and taking 3 mid-term tests.  I think I can safely say I am ready for warmer weather.

  1. My car and I are moving south for the winter. The birds do it, I think they might be on to something.


Thanks for commenting. It means a lot.
