Winter Storm Olympia

This past weekend the National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings that stretched from central Kentucky to western Virginia. On Sunday morning The Weather Channel named the storm Winter Storm Olympia. Winter Storm Olympia has affected (or will affect) a large swath of the United States from Wisconsin and Missouri to Virginia, North Carolina and northeastward into New York and parts of New England.

At 5:10 am yesterday morning the National Weather Service in State College PA issued a winter storm warning for snow for where I live, in Warren PA.  The warning became effective at 7:00 pm that evening until 6:00 pm on this evening.  We already had a few inches of snow on the ground. An additional 6-10 inches of snow was anticipated.

For the remainder of this blog post I will share a few photographs that I took at our house around 10:00 am this morning.  I have no idea how much snow is on the ground.  The photographs, though, will give you a general idea of the depth.  There is a lot of snow on the ground, and the snow is still falling!

Look how much snow is on top of our bird feeder.  There is a small hill separating our yard from our neighbor’s yard.  Look at how much snow is on top of our neighbor’s patio furniture!

If I (or Bob) had thought to place a snow shovel on our front porch yesterday, I would have attempted to clear the snow from our sidewalk and at least part of our driveway. As it is, I do not have a pair of boots high enough to walk from our back door to the garage to get the shovel!

Our neighbor’s foundation plants are topped high with snow.

I took a couple photographs, while standing on our front porch on a small square with little or no snow.

 We have had a very mild 2015-2016 Winter season, so I will not complain about Winter Storm Olympia.  Our school district has a snow day today, its first this Winter season…not bad for NW Pennsylvania, not bad at all.

    We NEVER get this much snow…. I would love to be somewhere just to see that —and to watch it come down. My joy is watching it fall from the sky… So beautiful.

    Hugs,

    It certainly looks beautiful Linda. We had this kind of snow a couple of weeks ago but our latest is only two or three inches. Three ten year olds knocked on our door yesterday to ask if they could shovel our drive and pathway. They did a real good job. We were happy to pay them. It has been about ten years since any kids knocked on our door to shovel snow. The cycle is turning 🙂
