Finally, I ventured down to the forest, figuring any branches swaying would be down by now. This is the path down to the frog pond. I shook off the snow, and pulled the branch ends out of frozen clumps of snow. If I don't do that now, the branches will stay that way, bent. (Not my first rodeo!) A total 28 cm we had.

Snow Fall at Crumbly Acres – Part 5
This isn't our first storm: Ice Storm Clean-up Part 4 <= this was from February 2016. The pine at the far end of the meadow is the one above.
Okay, back to the forest. You can see the left side of the evergreen, branches drooping where the snow hit and stuck.
I came across a tree with its bark chewed. Do you know which critter did this?!
I figure it has to be the smaller one, the baby porcupine, I spotted in October.
The two pines, at either end of the meadow, suffered from the storm. This is the other end.
Then, there are the bushes.

Bombogenesis... it is coming. It is a Colorado Low moving in. We have been warned:
