This is what the roads and houses looked like this morning. The lower right shows the plowed road surface. The next step up is where the sidewalk is, covered by around six to ten inches of snow. Above that is the yard where no shoveling has been done since all this snow started some three weeks ago. Even though the old snow had settled, there's now what looks like two feet or so. And there's about that much on top of the roofs that haven't been cleared prior to this latest snow.
We're also done with the single digit temps and are now in the 20's and 30's. It no longer feels like walking out into a freezer. In fact, it feels almost tropical. Our bananas and pineapples are doing quite well :).
Here are a few more sights from this morning. As was implied earlier with the snow coming again today, the clouds rolled in a little while after I captured these images.
Narrows towards Frederick Sound
Another little thing that I've noticed that is different from the lower 48 is that people leave their vehicles running, unattended. I suppose someone can take those out for a joyride, but there's not too many places for them to run and hide. There's one way to get a vehicle off the island, and that's by ferry. The ferry officials do check to make sure vehicles going on are allowed to go.
