Lots of snow

Took a snowshoe this morning in about 4' of untrammeled snow. Good work out, and quickly the 8 degree outdoor temps felt like 60 degrees! My first step into the snow, sans snow shoes, put me in up to my hips. The dog pushed on ahead of me for about 2 minutes before realizing how much easier it was to travel in my snowshoe tracks. Return trip was much easier! My sugar shack is enrobed in snow - I've got a bit of work to do before sugaring season starts.
