With the snow from last Saturday's untimely storm mostly melted away, Ian & I were able to bring some wood down from the wood yard for stacking.
Last month I cut back a highly invasive Japanese Honeysuckle bush in order to make room for the wood.

The snow from last weekend continues to melt, making it seem more like spring than autumn.

A lot of the snow from last weekend's storm has melted. Still plenty remains. Soon it will be time to replace the sod strips dislodged by the plow.

Yesterday's cleanup following the October nor'easter is pictured here. The storm's impact here was primarily in the form of heavy snow amounts. To the south and east, many communities are without power due to downed trees and utility lines. With seasonal temperatures returning the snow should disappear in a matter of days.

A ferocious autumn nor'easter roared through New England late yesterday and overnight, leaving a record October snowfall in it's wake. I haven't measured officially, but the snow was knee-deep this morning, which is about 20 inches (50.8 cm) or roughly equal to Baldr's hackles.

Baldr was very happy to see Randy, the farrier, arrive today to trim Caspian's hooves. Dogs love hoof trimmings!

The view outside the front door this morning was white and wintry.

Lyle came with his excavator yesterday to dig the ditch for the waterline to the barn. In the afternoon, Ian & Lisa laid down the line. Later, Edmund came to drill a hole in the foundation to connect the line to the plumbing. Caspian watched all with great interest. I hope he's not expecting hot water!

Monday was off to a frosty start. Time to find the ice scraper.
