Here are a couple of pics of what the L household has now that the snow has stopped and the sun is shining (and we can see the river again!). The temperature is 16° with a slight wind, so it is still rather cold. But we let the dog out of the basement she has called home since Monday night. On the porch, it feels warmer because of the sunshine and lack of wind. She'll go back to the basement tonight, since it is supposed to drop to -10°.

The view from the garage. Since I had to walk through knee deep snow to get to the shovel, I am calling this the “Frog snow”, since to me it sounds like a frog’s croak is “kneedeep”.
