The Big Melt

We've had so much snow this Winter.
Here is the Boise area,
it has been "record levels" of snow.
Not only snow, but freezing temperatures that 
wouldn't let the snow to melt.

So for two and half months,
 starting back on Dec. 6th,
we've been buried under several feet of snow.

Until now!
Here are a series of pictures from
 our backyard snow melt.

Just when I thought the snow was going away,
it snowed two inches!

The picture below is interesting,
because it looks like fluffy mounds of snow.
I was actually standing on one of those
mounds, taking the picture.
Rock hard snow!

This was a few days ago.
Most of the snow is gone, in the major
part of our backyard.
The North side still has snow. 

I can't wait to start hanging up laundry on the line outside. Getting dirt under my fingernails from working in the garden.


"Do not be conformed by the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is God's will - His good, pleasing and perfect will."

Romans 12:2


  1. Wow! Your snow has melted a LOT more than ours! I was trying to reach a baby chick that got out of the coop, and couldn't get back in, and I was walking in snow close to my hips. I could hardly move. We have a lot of melting of snow yet to take place here! I am glad you can see your ground again, for sure, spring is not far off now! Any snow that comes won't last long with the lengthening days :)

  2. You had a lot of snow! We had just a tad and that's the way I like it. But snow is pretty to look at.

  3. Great snow pics. As a kid, I used to love standing on those rock hard snowdrifts that would come in the deep of snow blizzards.

    Nice to see the ground ... I like that you still hang clothes outside.

    Wishing you a beautiful week,

  4. The snow is so beautiful when it first falls! Then, I'm ready for it to melt away. LOL! You are going to really appreciate being able to dig in the dirt and hang clothes on the line. Stay warm, girl! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  5. This has been such a strange winter in D/FW. It can be 80 degrees one day and 40 degress the next. I love the snow. Have a Happy Valentine's Day! May love and joy always be yours.

  6. That still looks like lots of snow to me. But I am a Florida girl so you know that we don't know what snow is suppose to look like! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Dear Christine ... My, you have had your share of snow and more. Here in Kansas, we have had a mild winter so far. We have a week of temperatures in the 60's and 70's ahead for us. It surely isn't a typical winter here.

    Blessings & Hugs

  8. Hi! It's been a long time since I've been able to read blogs again and I"m glad yours is still here! Look at all that snow. Yikes! I must admit, since moving to the South I do miss snow but good gosh not that much!.. It does look so very pretty though :)

  9. We had some nice melting going on, and then it turned colder and now we have more snow on top of what was still left. It was nice while it lasted, though. xo
