    The basement windows are below grade and there are window wells. To keep water out or the window well I have plastic covers over them. To protect the plastic wells which cost about $20 a piece, every time it snows very much I put a piece of plywood over them so the snow from the roof does not land on them and break them. If there is a big snow like this the snow can actually break through the plastic and then knock out the window panes and wind up in the basement. Then one has a lot of work to do.

    Much like other places including Idaho, there are a lot of invasive plants here that do not belong. The question will be how the native plants and the invasive plants survive the prolonged snow cover and come springtime whether the natives will be able to reestablish some lost ground.

    We had a good crop of acorns this year and there are a lot of squirrels but there were not so many fawns as usual because of a poor crop of acorns last year. I expect we will see a big winter kill of animals and birds which is rare for us.

    Bob, that snow looks like a "heart attack" to me, so be careful, or is that why you are supervising your daughter? Now you know the answer to your query................of course only the invasive plants will survive. That's Murphy's law! Take care, and be careful
