The monks arose early as usual, but as they glanced out the windows this morning, the ground was white.  Snow has fallen at the Abbey.  It continued to come down into the early afternoon, making the country roads not too friendly to the traveler.

Br. Placid operated the snowplow this morning to clear the driveways and sidewalks, while other monks and friends picked up shovels to push the snow aside.

I had not been keeping up with the weather forecast, so I was not expecting the snow, but I took the opportunity to snap some pictures around the grounds.
