Dawn Breaks -- Plow Arrives

Dawn Breaks -- Plow Arrives

The major storm that devastated the Northeast gently dropped six fluffy inches of snow (now gone) on Yardley, Pennsylvania.
I was outside shoveling walkways as the sun rose the day after the night of the snowfall.
Right on cue (sunrise) the landscaper who plows our long, winding, uphill driveway arrived.

It's a beautiful scene, Michelle - although your idea of beautiful at that very moment may have been the sight of that snowplow!

Such a lovely scene....Yes, the snowplow has a certain timely beauty itself!

I just love the photos of your driveway after a fresh blanket of snow, Michelle! It is so very picturesque - like in a winter wonderland! You are fortunate (although it may not always feel that way!) to live in such a beautiful, natural setting. Fortunate, too, that the storm sparred you the worst.

Nice timing to get the plow through the trees. No snow on the Tex/Mex border.

You sure do have a beautiful yard, Michelle! I love all the trees and especially with the blanket of snow. It's a beautiful pic!

Beautiful winter scene! We are lucky to have our across the road neighbor plow our drive. He has to plow 1 1/2 miles down his own road to get to the highway, then on to our house. That was his road that I posted yesterday.

Beautiful scene and curves, Michelle!! Never had much snow when I lived back east but sometimes ice...impossible to plow so we were pretty much trapped on those days...

Beautiful Michelle but I imagine the novelty wears off when it happens so often.

I really like these "peeking through the woods" captures, Michelle. Ingenious approach to everyday scenes.
