Slightly more snow than WMUR led us to believe — even with me automatically adding 2″ more to compensate for our higher, 660′, elevation.

Not heavy, but sticky. Hard to shovel. That said I spent 70 minutes shoveling. Entire drive is shoveled. Didn’t bother with the mailbox. No mail tomorrow. I will shovel it out Tuesday morning.

It is very pretty out here. All the trees have a coating of snow a couple inches deep. But, grey, miserable sky. No sun. WMUR is also wrong, so far, about the temperature getting up above 32ºF. At 11:30 am the thermometer in my bathroom with a wireless link to an outside sensor on the deck was reading 28ºF. I want the temp. to rise so the snow on the DirecTV dish will slide off. Yes, I can get out of there and brush it off with my snow shovel, but I would rather not because I haven’t put it together as yet, this year.

It was fun to be out shoveling. I can’t imagine not being able to or not wanting to shovel. I find shoveling very soothing and satisfying. Having the two dogs froliking around and Teischan playing in the snow adds to the general feeling of bonhomie.

We have a lot of turkeys (mainly feathered) around here. That one of the neighbors feeds them lavishly, year round, must, I think, be a factor. Doesn’t bother me. I kind of like having them around, as do the kids and especially Maya. Deanna is not keen on them because of their propensity to defecate willy nilly.

I think there are multiple gaggles and they are growing. This one we saw last Sunday evening was around 40 strong. They had just finished their Sunday dinner and were walking across the road.

It wasn’t snowing during my run up Prospect Mountain this morning: 9:40 to 10:30. It was cloudy, but quite nice. Not cold!

I had heard that it would start to snow around 10, albeit the ’10’ more towards the West, i.e., around Manchester.

It started snowing in Alton at 11 a.m. I could see it from the bathroom window while I was doing my ablutions for the day. It was snowing quite hard. It is still snowing though the accumulation is light.

I am going to wait till tomorrow morning to shovel. Wow. I haven’t shoveled in nearly 10 days, I think. It will be nice to do some shoveling.

It was snowing since yesterday and it was bitterly cold last night. But, as far as I can tell we didn’t get much, if any, howling winds. It was still snowing lightly when I woke up around 8:30 am this morning. Deanna and Teischan informed me that there was a LOT of snow. That we had expected. I watched CNN and CNBC while having my coffee. Things seemed dire in Boston, but we also knew that this was a southern and coastal storm. I had predicted, given our 660′ elevation, that we would get 14″. I was wrong. We got 7″ from what the tape measure said.

Did YOU know that this storm has a name? I learnt it from the U.K. press! Hercules

Yes, we had 19″ (or more) where the plow had pushed aside snow. Plus there was some drifting by the garage doors.

We, Devanee, Deanna & I, shoveled and pushed snow
for just over an hour.

That is all it took. We cleared a path for the SUV and I shoveled the mailbox out,
with a generous drive-in area for the postman. That is my trademark. Well shoveled mailbox.

So, it wasn’t bad. There was NO WIND. Calm. Nothing was stirring.
So, we are happy. Could have been much worse.
