My second day of work is over and I came home and shoveled the snow off our driveway and sidewalk. Since I devoured several handfuls of peanuts as a snack, I decided I would shovel the driveway of the lady that lives across the street from us, too. It ‘s only fair since I was in her backyard taking pictures of her snowy ravine. Yes, we have a ravine in our backyard, but hers is filled with more snow-covered trees.
Since midnight, we’ve officially picked up 4.1″ of snow in the Quad Cities in Moline, Illinois. And, with this snow, we’re now above average for the winter and well above the dismal snowfall totals from last winter at this time! (This picture that I took for the snow “graphic” looks like deer antlers!)
What’s incredible is that 14.1″ (more than a foot of snow) fell since last Tuesday!!!
Here are a few other totals across eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois:
6.0″ Independence (IA); 5.5″ Sterling (IL); 5.5″ Muscatine (IA); 5.4″ Fort Madison (IA); 5.0″ Galena (IL); 5.0″ Tipton (IA); 5.0″ Cedar Rapids (IA); 5.0″ Wapello (IA); 5.0″ Washington (IA); 4.8″ Illinois City (IL); 4.6″ Dubuque (IA); 4.5″ Freeport (IL); 4.5″ Iowa City (IA); 4.1″ Davenport (IA); 4.1″ Moline (IL); 4.0″ Burlington (IA); and 3.8″ Disco (IL). I added the last one because it sounds fun.
Enjoy these winter photos that I took this morning.
