More Snow

Snow-covered driveway

The driveway

Flooding last week, snow this weekend. I get the feeling that we’ve had enough precipitation this winter. While we only received about a foot of snow (compared to the ~2.5′ before Christmas), it was enough to keep us holed up for a day. Fret not, I imagine the stuff will be gone by next weekend. I captured a few images and posted them for your viewing pleasure.

Rivanna Flooding

Rivanna flooding

This morning we woke up to a bit of a mess at the bottom of the hill. After the Christmas week snow melted and we received quite a bit of rain over the last few days and the ground is saturated. (Unfortunately the moisture is making it difficult for us to take soil samples of candidate planting grounds!) An overnight storm was more than the Rivanna River could handle and it flooded into the bottom lands on the the farm.

I had a chance to take a few photos of the running water for our first blog photo album. Enjoy!
