The Winter of 2015 has been abnormally cold, and the silly 4″ we received overnight brought us to 100 inches, almost all of which fell in the last four weeks. The temperature reached a balmy 40 degrees today, the nicest we’ve seen for a while. What better way to enjoy it than taking in the view from the roof!

The thermometer reached 40 degrees, and softened the snow enough that I was able to rake a lot more off the roof
The snowpack on the roof softened with the heat, but the snow piles below it are now solid enough to walk on.
Meanwhile, Deb tackled the snow on the rear deck, and then took in a bit of sun in our backyard snow fort.

As the sun began to sink behind the snow walls and the treeline, Deb headed on up to the roof to catch the last rays

While she was on the roof, Deb took this photo of our circular driveway and the 10' snow mound in the middle.
From the roof, Deb took this photo of our circular driveway, the clearing of which has become my purpose in life this winter. (I’m quite proud of the snow mound in the middle–you can just make out the top of the 8′ lightpost to the left of the tree.) It was a wonderful day in New England! The temperature is predicted to drop to -5 degrees by Tuesday morning.
