Mother Nature dropped at least a foot of snow upon us yesterday.
Everywhere you look, it’s a Winter Wonderland.

Hannah soon discovered that snow shoes were the easiest mode of transportation.
My Birch trees are sagging under the weight of the snow.

After plowing, Paul cleans up the dooryard with the tractor.
This was our first Maine Christmas without snow. This storm has more than made up for it!
