stormy weather and the day after






We had quite the blizzard come through here on Sunday and so we spent a very quiet day at home.

Above is our back deck last evening after the storm had pretty well passed and before Murray cleaned the snow off.

There is a lawn chair with a container of greenery under that pile of snow in the corner.


The wind blew blobs of snow onto the bathroom window.


This morning we awoke to clearing skies and a pretty sunrise.



I think we got about a foot of snow but it's hard to tell with all the drifting we had.  Some drifts were about two feet deep.  There was that much on our back deck alone.


It is a winter wonderland.

Murray spent 2 hours snow blowing the driveway last night then this morning he had to scoop the 4 inches that fell over night.

It has been a beautiful sunny day but it's cold and the wind is blowing the fluffy snow into great drifts.  I think we'll be missing the trees we cut down this past summer as it looks like there is about 3 feet of snow in the backyard this afternoon.  The trees used to catch the snow from the field.  Uh oh.  :(

I just wanted to share these photos with you and I'll be back with a tea time post later.

Have a nice and cozy evening.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Holy cow! You got more snow than we get all winter! This reminds me of Michigan when I was a kid. The snow drifts would get so high we could cross country ski over barb wire fences.

  13. Pamela,
    Those snow photos are so beautiful. Every year I hope for a white Christmas and would love to one day spend it somewhere up in a mountain with our family.

  14. Reminds me of the Winters when I lived in New England..........so much snow and so very cold. The kids would come in from playing with icicles hanging from their nostrils, and their snow boots lost somewhere in the drifts - wouldn't find them until the Spring thaw!!!!!

    Stay safe and warm dear - at least it looks like Christmas in your neck of the woods!!

    Hugs - Mary

  19. That was so much snow, Pamela! We've switched back to unusually warm temperatures in the 60's and all our snow melted. It has been such changeable crazy weather everywhere!

    PS: Google Picasa put those twinkling special effects on some of the photos I uploaded to their web site. They called it "auto enhanced" I don't know how it was done, but I was so pleasantly surprised to see it!

  21. Pamela, that was quite the snowstorm! We've had a few inches here, too, but mostly very cold weather. It's early for us to be so frigid, I guess this is going to be a long winter. Considering the snow didn't completely melt until May tenth here last spring, it doesn't seem like we had much time without snow on the ground.

    Did you uncover your lovely decorations on the deck? It's sad when the snow covers up all your artistry!

  22. It is beautiful, but gosh, what a lot of snow. Your deck looks amazing all covered up like that. Strange about the way that blobs of snow blow onto things like your bathroom window isn't it. When we get snow we get strange blobs like that on the garden fence, almost like nature has been throwing snowballs around! I hope that you are still staying safe and warm. xx
