Early March Snows in Hague

That was all on March 1. The town grader came and scraped our street clean. But on Saturday, March 4th it started snowing again! We were in the city for the afternoon, and found the highway just passable yet on our return trip.

I failed to take photos on Sunday morning when I shoveled the little cement driveway, while Dad cleared a path through the garden to get another shovel for the car from the back shed. It was still snowing so we decided to stay home from church.

Too much snow on the neighbour's roof.
At noon the sun came out, and it looked like it was all over. We saw a neighbour across the street, go up on his roof to shovel the heavy wet snow off.

Monday the 6th was okay, as we went to Saskatoon, for another dental appointment for Dad. He had all his teeth out.

The next morning the radio was full of warnings to stay off the road. A misty rain was freezing and causing many accidents. It let up later in the day so we went to the fundraising concert in Saskatoon... I was committed; I had to go. But it all turned out okay.

Coming home we drove in a misty rain, but it turned to snow before we were half home. It continued to snow all that night.

There's a forklift on the other side of that ridge
Wednesday and Thursday the snow grader was scraping up the snows into high ridges in the center of the road, and then, gradually, a few streets each day, but working long hours, they scooped it up with a forklift and trucked it away.

Dad had already taken many scoops full of snow around the house to the garden, but now he pushed some out into the street so Jim could lift it into the trucks too with the forklift.

Today, March 9, the temperatures rose, the sun came out, and dripping was to be heard everywhere.

Let's go see the back yard.

here's our deep snow path through to the back shed
There's our deep snow path through the garden to the back shed. At least 2 to 3 feet deep!

Do you see the animal tracks going over the snow drift?
I'm guessing a cat.

Dad had dug out the smaller rain barrel this
morning
Dad had dug out the smaller rain barrel this morning. Shortly after I took this photo he went out again and set that white barrel under that downspout. It was +5 and even + 7 outside! The barrel was almost half full by evening when Dad and I poured it into large pails and brought it in. Lovely, pure, clean water!

Shovelling snow is fine exercise, but how much more is going to fall on us before spring? Oh-well, it's nothing as serious as the hurricanes in the southern USA.
