There are tire tracks in the driveway because our daughter had rescue squad duty overnight and had just arrived home.
I suited up after breakfast, to get outside and clear our steps and front walk. Dressed in layers ... three layers underneath this hoodie, with a fleece hat and the hood on my head.

This snow was light and puffy, unlike the heavy, icy snow that we usually get. It was easy to shovel, and the remnants swept away relatively cleanly with a broom.
With the main job finished, I used my phone camera to capture the scenery.
While I was out, I heard plows coming up the road. Not surprised to see that the work was being done by two large John Deere tractors ... this is a country road, after all.
Shortly after I finished the shoveling, my husband went out with our snow blower to clear the driveway. The light, puffy snow made quite a plume!
By mid-afternoon, the sun warmed the hard surfaces and any remaining snow melted and mostly evaporated, even though the air temperature remained well below freezing all day. We had no plans to leave home, but it was good to know that everything was clear and safe if we did need to get out.
A snow day is perfect for cooking something that has to simmer in a pot. Supper was chicken and dumplings, made with the remnants of the weekend's rotisserie chicken ...
... and I put the finishing touches on a new crocheted hat, inspired by THIS pattern. (The ribbed band isn't in the pattern ... I added that on my own.)
Next time it snows, I'll have a snazzy new hat to wear.
