All I can say this week is, wow - there is a lot of snow. Two more storms this week, and even after a day of rain and two days in mid 40's, the snow pack is still incredibly deep. There was too much time spent clearing it away to do much trekking around in the woods, but here's one picture that gives the idea.
This marsh has bushes that are probably two to three feet high in the summer, and they are completely covered. Only the tallest saplings show now. Here's the same marsh, from almost the same location in the late summer.
And that was when the water was high - at this point the water level is a good 12 inches lower.
Another couple of weeks like this and we'll have to shovel just to look out the windows!
