As I mentioned yesterday, we had a bit of a blizzard here. It snowed all day, dawn to dusk and then some, and most of it came in horizontally. The total in my neighborhood was 9-10 inches. The neighbors I mentioned who were out shoveling and snowblowing yesterday were working in very unpleasant conditions.
I got out with the shovel at about 10 am this morning and cleared the front walk, steps, sidewalk, and about 3/4 (width) of the doublewide driveway. Four hours later, everything I shoveled is bone dry and the back deck, which I didn’t touch, is being cleared by the sun.
“Snow eater” is a term used here for a warm wind, a chinook. But there is absolutely no wind today. Today the sun is the snow eater, as you can see.
It continues to amaze me how fast a major snowstorm here just evaporates — literally.
Oh, and the neighbors who did their shoveling yesterday while it was still snowing? Their driveways and walks are clear and dry too.
