White Christmas


Since we celebrate Christmas in our house,
We Wish You a Merry Christmas!
Hope your Holidays/Solstice/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/New Year is all you want it to be.
OTW weather.
We have snow still ... again ... still.
I usually say that about rain here.

Posing

This little guy posed just outside the window,
so I obliged by taking his picture.

Busy birdfeeder before blizzard





The birdfeeder was very busy today, with many different birds.
All getting full before the blizzard arrives.
Very tiny sparrows to very large ravens who were too big to fit on the feeder -
not that they didn't keep trying. They would grab the edge of the ledge, constantly flapping their wings, trying to get to the seeds.
They did clean the seeds off the snow under the feeder.

Snowdrift

Interesting how the wind sculpted the snow around the car. We had cleared the driveway around the cars before the winds arrived.

Blowing wind, drifting snow

The winds in this storm blew all day, creating snow drifts and clearing lawns and roads - in places. Part of our lawn was clear, part was covered in a 2-3 foot drift. There was a drift along both sides of the cars that was almost as tall as the car - as you can see here, also in between the cars. The drift also covers several bushes. This picture was taken while a mild wind was blowing. The gusts created blizzard-like viewing, white pictures. We chose not to leave the house very much.

Before the wind...

..there was snow that had covered everything. (This was early in the storm.) By the time the winds had blown through, this bench was clear again. I'll post more pictures the next few days.

It's bloomin' cold...

This is really a picture of some of our pansies.

We have snow!


Snowfall and the bird feeder.
We made sure to fill it before the storm hit. It is supposed to be VERY cold the next few days.
