During the summer prairie grasses and small bushes grow higher than six feet.  The heavy winter snow buries the grasses and bushes increasing visibility.

Not enough to ski on, or snowshoe on, or snowmobile on and it will probably be gone tomorrow, but I woke to a Wintery world today.

Winter in Wisconsin

Snowshoeing 018

It is official.  We have never had a winter like this one.

According to Channel3000.com “The National Weather Service said an accumulation of 1.8 inches of snowfall overnight put Madison’s total at 77.3 inches.

That breaks the old mark of 76.1 inches set during the winter of 1978 and 1979.”

The mail box in front of my house is completely buried with snow.  The post is about four feet high and all you can see is the door to the mailbox sticking out of the side of the snowbank.  The kids love it!  Commuters are sick of driving in it.  A snowplow driver who has been battling snow all winter said, “I hope it stops soon, I’ll tell you that. I’m getting real tired of it,”

Except for the kids, most people around here are looking forward to warmer weather.  I think I’ll head out this weekend and do some more snowshoeing.
