Backyard Winter Nature in New Jersey: New Snow.

First snow in New Jersey this winter that didn’t disappear within a day. The day before it was 65°F (18°C). Ultimately, we got about 6 inches (15 cm) of a heavy wet snow. It was enough that I needed to shovel part of my driveway. The solar panels are covered with snow. We will see how long it takes to melt off so I am producing electricity again.
