Aftermath of a 36-hour snowstorm

This is the biggest snowfall in one go that we've had this winter, and as there was already a fair bit on the ground, it's getting pretty deep in places. It was windy with it, so the snow is in drifts and has formed some attractive contours around the trees:

This was how our driveway was looking first thing this morning:

...before Mike got to work with the tractor and snow-blower attachment:

Snowblower to the rescue!

The front path and steps had to be done with a shovel and it was quite a good workout (though I realise now that I was doing it all wrong).

The new composter is looking a bit buried, too:
