It sure does snow in Kansas!

This week I am visiting my Grandmother in Kansas. Monday night I arrived at the farm just as the first snow was falling, and by Tuesday morning I couldn’t have left if I wanted to. Here are some pictures of what things looked like the first couple of days I was here!

Back porch before the blizzard

Back porch after blizzard. Taken through screen because all of the windows were completely covered with either snow or frost!

Here is the Facebook photo album if interested.

It took a front loader to clear the driveway so I would be able to get out if I needed, although as of Friday night I had not even attempted it since we have plenty to eat in the house, and the electricity, heat and internet are all working. Grandma’s cat is not at all happy having to wade through snow to go to the bathroom! (Plus, I imagine it’s rather difficult to find any ground that isn’t frozen … probably has to go all the way to the barn, which in good weather is nothing but in snow deeper than the cat is high I noticed he didn’t even try (well, at least I didn’t see any cat tracks going out that way).
