A Snowy Day Inside

I can't believe I didn't take any pictures of our snow.

Charley spent most of the day shoveling and I put seeds in the bird feeders. We had beautiful cardinals, blue jays, juncos, and tufted titmouses eating all day.

We had around 6" of snow with ice underneath. Schools were closed, and finally about an hour before my son David's college class was to begin, his professor called and said class was canceled.

Here are a couple of night time photos of what's currently outside. It is 32 degrees and what looks like a mixture of ice and rain is coming down.

This is where Charley piled up the snow when he shoveled the driveway.



It's a little dark, but I thought the snow on the picnic table looked kind of neat.




and look at this icy bird feeder!



So what did I do today?

I used this...




and this...



to make these...


Only 30 more to go!

When I got married they threw rice at the bride and groom. Now a days they throw bird seed!
But I think that's a good idea, especially this time of year.

  4. I know it's very cold and snowy up there, but it makes me homesick. I would love to see snow again.

  7. Love the snowy pics! I'm still hoping for a big snow here before winter is out. So far we've only got little skiffs.
