Minnesota Farmer

Snow covered branches

The gently falling snow has created snow covered branches.  I took a walk (wading through knee deep snow) out to take some pictures of snow on wood.

Sagging cedar

Some branches are sagging.

The branches on this spruce have nearly collapsed.

Snow on Mock Orange bush

Even the slender branches of bushes have developed a large load of snow.

Wood pile under snow

Knee deep snow has made the trip to the wood pile an adventure.  Over a foot of snow needs to be removed from the top of the pile before you can get at the wood.  Three feet of snow is hiding the face of the pile.

And while we fight piles of snow, the grocery stores have had so much demand they cannot keep the shelves full.

nearly empty bread shelves

My wife snapped this picture on the Sunday after Christmas.  One lady decided not to take the last package of buns only to have three others reach for that lone package of bread.  When the trucks cannot run the shelves get empty.  It shows you how close the stores are stocking their inventory of some items.
