Shoveling Leaves and Snow

Have you ever heard of shoveling leaves and snow at the same time?  Well I hadn't until Wednesday when we had our first snow and then the leaves fell.  Here is what it looks like.  The 1st photo is my first pass down the sidewalk.


This next one is my second pass with both leaves and snow in the shovel


The last one is when I finished and the leaves kept falling.  Notice how many are on the street at the top of the photo.


You can see more leaves and snow pictures in my previous post.

Thanks for stopping and have a nice weekend.
See you next time
Barb

Now that looks like a fun job! NOT. Shoveling wears me out!

Debbie said...

we experienced the same thing in early november last year. first super storm sandy and then just a few days later a freak snow storm. most of our leaves were still on the trees!!

crappy work, but it looks kinda pretty ;)

Grandma C said...

Sorry you have added work but it does make for some very pretty photos. :)

Woah, that's crazy! I've never seen photos like this before. Wow!

W. Latane Barton said...

Boy, that is weird. I have lots of leaves and they say we may get a little snow. Strange weather.

Lynn said...

you are right you are really shovelling more leaves than snow, brrrrrrr!!!!

Beth said...

I am sorry you had snow so early there. I am hoping for little or no snow here this winter. Ice is even worse.

Buttons said...

Oh It sure is pretty Barb:) Hug B

Our photos said...

Snow by you rain by us, nice photos!
Greetings, RW & SK

Terri Buster said...

The weather is sure nutty at your place..hope you had some help with the shoveling...that is hard work!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

The photos are so pretty, but I'm glad ours has melted...we have so many leaves to rake!

That must have been a messy job. I hope you put your feet up afterwards, Barb.

I think it looks rather pretty to see the leaves on top of the snow. I guess the leaves were waiting for the cold and snow to led go and fall. Have a great weekend Barb.

Carole M. said...

so you have a wheelbarrow? Where do you take the snow/leaves to? Obviously the snow will melt at some time...I'm curious?

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

So you are getting two jobs done at once. They are talking of some flying snow here by next Wed or so.

Ugh! A home owner's worst nightmare. We've had one snow a few weeks ago, but the leaves weren't down yet. Ours are just starting to fall and I can still get rid of them with the lawn mower, but soon that won't be the case and I'll have to get out the rakes.

That white stuff sure makes the leaves look yellower. Pain in the butt, though!

Brian King said...

I've never had to shovel leaves. I would think it would make shoveling the snow a bit more difficult. Makes for nice shots, though!

Karen Frost said...

Lots of work, but it sure looks pretty! Keep cozy! xo

Elaine said...

You need to have a discussion with that tree about the proper time to drop its leaves.

Nancy said...

I have to say the yellow and white is pretty together but it does look alittle strange....Be safe shoveling and I hope you have a great weekend...

Judy said...

That is totally crazy, we still haven't gotten any snow but I know it will be here soon. Makes for great photos :)

Amy Burzese said...

That sure is pretty, but strange looking at the same time. Be safe!

eileeninmd said...

The yellow leaves and snow are pretty images. Happy weekend, Barb!

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

TexWisGirl said...

it absolutely made me think of vanilla frosting with some sort of sprinkles on it - maybe butterscotch chips. :)

Kaya said...

Barb, I have never shoveled leaves and snow. It's not an easy job.

The pictures of leaves and snow are very beautiful. They are like a wonderful carpet covered with snow.

Warm hugs to you Barb!

Donna said...

Oh my goodness! We would never have that here in the South. I can't imagine leaves and snow at the same time.
Love the pics!!
Hugs,
Donna

Gold and silver snow - nice pictures!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Oh my, that doesn't quite seem fair. The gold leaves and snow together do make for some pretty photos, though.

Liz said...

That's very unusual! Snow in Autumn!!
I live in a sub-tropical climate but I did grow up in a much cooler climate.

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

gorgeous views. i love your little path. stay warm. ( :

ladyfi said...

Leaves and snow - what a lovely sight!

Swati Singh said...

Truly, lovely captures! leaves with the snow looking looking beautiful.



Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Matted up leaves and snow are no fun to shovel.

genie said...

Well, I guess that is a first....but the leaves are sososo pretty against the white snow. You did a fine job of shoveling. genie

MastHoliday said...

Sounds a fantastic spot! Love the photos..

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Barb, WOW I remember those days of snow and leaves when I grew up in Michigan. The color of those leaves against the white snow is pretty.
Your front yard is darling and I love the window boxes.
Just caught up on your past posts and like always, your pics are incredible.
Enjoy the rest of the week and stay warm.
Hugs

Ivy and Elephants said...

What an amazing sight! It does make for some pretty photos, but very unusual, right?!
We had a cool spell that dipped us into the low 70's. Yea!
The heat has been unbearable.
Hugs,
Patti

Carletta said...

I 'm thankful we mowed over most of our leaves before our snow fell.
I still like those golden leaves atop the snow. That part's pretty. I'm sure the shoveling wasn't much fun and the leaves will still be there when the snow is gone. Ugh...

Ailime said...

Olá Barb, absolutamente extraordinária essa combinação de neve e folhas que adorei! Aqui ainda está muito sol e a temperatura bastante amena. Um abraço e grata por me ter visitado. Ailime

Oh my, does this mean a cold winter to come? The mix of leaves and snow does make a beautiful scene.
