April showers

The old saying is April showers bring May flowers.  Well, that is not true here in Colorado.  This weekend we have had about two feet of snow so far.  With the hubby away today the snow is not getting removed from the driveway.  I can't tell where the driveway is.

The snow isn't as bad on the back deck since I did get it cleared yesterday afternoon but here is what it looks like now.

I can't even walk into the backyard.

With all the snow today I will have to get some projects done inside.  For the past few weeks I have been working on cleaning up the yard and some painting on the outside of the house.  Today I think I might tackle the powder room.

My goal is to paint the walls, frame around the mirror and the cabinet.  I also might work on some painting in the kitchen.  I probably should go out and remove some snow but I don't know how to work our new snowblower yet.  I think I would rather stay inside.


  1. Oh Jody! How awful to have so much snow this late in April! Even up here in Canada, at least in our area, I can't remember ever getting that much at this far into spring. And this year, we've had the earliest spring ever with such warm weather - sorry! Good for you coming up with some indoor projects - I'm sure your BR will look great when finished.

    1. I did manage to get the bathroom painted but I still need to finish the frame around the mirror and the vanity. I had to go out and do some shoveling. We normally don't get this much snow this late. When I went to shovel the lower deck the snow was about 6 inches above my knee. We had a blizzard last month that didn't produce this much snow.
