Did I mention it was snowing?


Yesterday the rain began...


and the wind began to howl ...
and the temperature dropped.  

By evening we had...


a very ominous looking evening.

The wind howled all night and the snow piled into drifts and by morning we had...


A heavy, wet, snowy, winter wonderland!

Oops! Can't get out the back door.

Reach around and snap this picture. There is the mighty Kia to the right, the chicken coop to the left. (Us chickens ... I think not.)


 Luckily we can get out the front door cause you wouldn't like me when I start to feel claustrophobic! 

I love how the snow just sat there and let me take its picture. No screen, it is just stuck that way.



Out the front door. 

Oh no, too cold and windy! Back inside where it is nice and warm.

Love how this tree looks. 

Almost half the country has had some wicked weather. Hope everyone is safe and warm!

Gee...Valerie...I can't believe you have had SNOW already!!! That's quite a bit too! It's 71 degrees here this AM in SE PA. We are getting a storm front through with lots of rain today. It's just too early for snow. Geez!

OMGosh Valerie.. You really did get the worst of it. We've just had very strong winds and lots and lots of rain here in Minneapolis. Nothing compared to all that white stuff at your house. Eeekks!! Just seeing it make me dread the upcoming winter even more. Stay indoors where it snug and warm..

We hardly ever get much snow in Georgia, so I am really enjoying your photos. Hope you have lots of warm and cozy projects to work on inside!

What pretty pictures, but can't believe snow already. Please keep it there! We're having unseasonably warm weather (mid 70's) although expected to drop this weekend. What doily are you making? I just started another round ripple. Have a good weekend.

Oh my goodness,snow already!!! I love how the world looks when it first snows and now that I'm retired I like it even more but I hate the cold and I don't like battling the elements to where I'm trying to go.
