They are saying we have 10 winter storms coming in the next few weeks, starting tomorrow, snow and ice and cold. We went out and made sure the bees had enough food. With this darn cold weeks coming up they can starve so easy. Had to add some sugar to a three of the hives, all big and healthy, the others doing fine.

It's very cold here, so we don't even go out in the yard. I know that this weather will last at least a week, so we're figuring out what to do at home. It's not the first time. I look at pictures of snow and think about how beautiful it is.

I just found out we have another 6"-8" of snow forecasted for tonight. I'm not even sure where I'm going to put it all.

They got the forecast wrong. We have over 12" and it's still coming down. I truly have no idea what I'm going to do with it.
I remember snows like that back in Chicago when I was young. The drifts were so high along the driveway where we had been shoveling that you couldn't throw the snow high enough to get it on top. Heave a shovelful of snow & half would just come rolling back down again. It's crazy! You do actually run out of places to put it!

Yeah. It's already over 6 feet tall along my driveway from previous snowfalls. Really don't know what to do, but I have a feeling I'm going to be outside cleaning it up for no less than four hours. In these bitterly cold temps, too. 0°F right now. :cold:

Look at it this way, you will be able to have a snowball fight in July! Grew up in Ohio with some huge snowstorms in the 70s. Road crews cut tunnels in the drifts to drive thru.

Sure thing. There's plenty to share.

According to local news, Milwaukee has the most snow on the ground at once in 20 years. I wouldn't be surprised if that was true here, too. Other than the blizzard of 2011, I can't remember this much snow piled up everywhere. I walked through nearly waste-high snow to fill my bird feeders today. It's pretty crazy.

Lots of snow still here still but the sun is out making it look even more beautiful. As much snow as we got even w/all the warmer temps it seems to be taking awhile to leave us. Bye bye my lovely snow :(
