IT SNOWED

might be snowed in_edited-1_wm

Well, not since November have we had more snow than it takes to fill one shovel.  This past Friday night and all day Saturday some of us had as much as 12 inches with three foot drifts … in our driveways.  If you look at the lower part of the image you’ll see a three foot wall left after the neighbors driveway was cleared.

I’ve got more Pictures.  It will be some time before all this melts.  Meanwhile, we could have more snow any time. NUTS!

Looks like a Marshmellow Snow.  Early morning light!

A good morning for finding seeds in the snow. “We are expecting as much as nine inches by midnite tonight.”

Here’s some Snow for you

A Snowy November Day_edited-1_wm

I shot this a few days ago as a large storm was moving through Central to Northern Illinois.   We received about six inches in the Peoria area and further north near Chicago they got as much as 14 inches.

Last week our neighborhood was left with a  blanket of  snow.

Well, when it snows it sure changes your perspective, doesn’t it?

In January 2014 I posted this image and thought it would be a good way to finish out 2017 – many of you really enjoyed his peaceful posture and apparent disregard for the winter weather.

A Snowy Morning

About a week ago we received two or three inches of snow.  I grabbed my camera and was about to shoot the image when the car suddenly came into the shot.  Go figure?

Cardinals enjoying the first big snow of the season a couple years back

Everyone is hungry when the cold and snow settle in for the wintery season.  Some of you may have seen this image in the past and since there is no snow in some areas of the Midwest – and none predicted, at this time throughout the month of January, I thought I’d re-post it for those of you who had not had a chance to view a few of the Cardinals. That winter we had as many as 20 at a time feeding on our feeder’s.

I told you I would shoot an image this morning to show the additional snow received during the night.  As you see, at most, we received another inch – no more than that.  Our driveway has drifting which will require shoveling later.  The temperatue is about three (3) degrees and the wind will blow up to 30 miles per hour today causing more drifting.  No more snow is forcasted for a few days.

Oooops! Me and My Big Mouth

Be careful what you wish for – although I didn’t.  We now have two inches on the ground and the wind is blowing and it’s suppose to snow all night. It’ s now 5PM Saturday!

I’ll shoot the same shot tomorrow morning and see how we ended up.
