Ugh....heavy wet snow and my plants don't get along. Eric was a dear and braved the elements with Lars to rescue the arborvitae and the rhododendron (which is normally the height of the house.)
He got most of the ice and snow off with a telescopic brush he uses for his boat and they sort of snapped back. I think he was more worried about them breaking and then losing privacy for the hot tub. I am pleased to report that the hot tub and a path to it has been shoveled out (Priorities!!!) and I did eventually dig a path from the front door. As of right now at 4 pm...there looks like a little lull in the radar but the snow is far from over.
