A Mid-March Winter Storm Named Stella

Here in the Northeast, we're digging out from under all the snow left by Winter Storm Stella.

Yesterday, we received about a foot of snow that began falling during the early morning hours. This particular snow was wet and heavy, and came with gusty winds and low visibility. Schools and shops were closed, commuter trains were suspended, and a travel ban was put into effect for the area's major roadways. This weather system was lighter than expected for much of the region, but it still left a beautiful thick coating of powdery, white fluff across my farm’s landscape - I just had to get out, plow the carriage roads, and enjoy the drive around the property.

Here are some photos…
