sNOw fun

Winter came...


it will be awhile before any
birds have a bath...



under there somewhere
is my Ford Edge...



the whole day was not spent
keeping cozy under a blanket...



I shoveled the sidewalk and driveway
twice...
(our driveway is about 30m or 100ft long...)



on the second round
I was thankful Kurtis got home to finish...



sometimes a person forgets to stop long enough
and watch the beauty of the snow falling down...




don't get me wrong...
winter still sucks the big one!

Brian said...

Oh my goodness! I hope you all just curl up and snooze though it!

God's Little People said...

Oh my goodness, that looks like the most beautiful "sucking" ever!! I hope there was some cozy time under the blanket after all the hard work (it's so darn heavy, isn't it!!). Good to see you had some help.
Hugs from - as ever - sunny Greece,
Joan + sun-worshipping kitties :-)

We have lots of snow drifts that are like beautiful sand dunes. Very pretty, but difficult to plow through - especially with a shovel. It's great exercise though!

Mary Ann said...

Good grief but that's a lot of snow!

Heather said...

Well, at least some people have finally caught up to us!! We Sasky girls are tough! Cheers!

Betsy Adams said...

Wow---I cannot imagine ever getting that much snow. We get a 'dab' here in winter --but nothing like you get.... I love snow--but cannot imagine trying to drive in it.

Hugs,
Betsy

It's beautiful, but deep. I've never seen snow that deep in my neck of the woods. Y'all stay safe, warm and snuggly. I wonder what Banjo thinks.

Christine said...

Waking up to that today. Drove through it last night coming back from a wedding, the two hour drive took four. One track on the highway, no one else on the road, at 1am. Glad to know we are sisters in the snow together! Now, where is my shovel?
Have a great rest of the weekend, and keep warm with Banjo. :) Christine

Anesha said...

Oh boy you do have a lot of snow!!! I think Banjo will get lots in all of that, better to stay indoors. :) Have a great week. Hugs Anesha

Ann said...

Oh my, I've got visions of the things to come but I won't tell you what our temperatures are right now. I'll be joining you buried in snow soon enough.

Cheri said...

So sorry you have winter already. we had a lovely couple of days in the 60s but snow is coming for us too.

Katnip Lounge said...

GAH!!

::runs and hides under the covers::

Is it Spring yet?

BeadedTail said...

It is beautiful but there seems to be too much of it too soon!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I'm torn between wanting snow and not having it. Check in when I'm snowbound like you and see how I feel! I do hope you've enjoyed your day, snow or not!!

unikorna said...

I am sorry but I loathe winter...I am a person who lives for nature, for green...so winter is my biggest enemy ...Lovely photos though :).

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Yes, you got more, I am sorry, you poor thing.

Can't believe there is a vehicle under there...but at least your Son helped you out.

Mr. Black said...

Oh.My.Gosh.

And I thought my birdbaths freezing the other day was bad.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay brrrrrrrrrrr to you. Hey don't you have a snow blower there?

It did look like nice, light, fluffy snow. I remember when.

Lin said...

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearerst Catherine,
Poor you... What can we do in order to help you?!
Did you clean the roof too? Strange that no snow is no there...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Linda R said...

That is some serious snow my friend.
It was windy and cold here today and now I feel bad for bitching about it.. I didn't have to shovel snow. And it was only in the mid 50's. So I will stop my complaining right now. I love you photos.

Hugs~

Betty Manousos said...

wow, that is a lot of snow!

please stay warm and heave a great week ahead!

SweetMarie said...

I just want a little snow. :)
You really do crack me up!
hugs,
Marie

Sabi Sunshine said...

WOW sonw day.... Thank God , we are not experiencing that right now... It still seems like summer here in Canada.

Tamago said...

Wow that is too much snow! The kitty is almost buried! Your photos are beautiful...lovely snow. But still too much snow! Stay warm!

Eileen said...

It's going to be a long winter, isn't it? Especially if the snow keeps coming.

I got away with no shoveling - my son said it took an hour and a half to do the driveway and sidewalk to the house...normally just a 20 minute job as neither are that large. YUK!

Good luck getting to work on Tuesday!

BumbleVee said...

We got it too Catherine..... but, only about 9 inches ...and I did shovel 3 times ....we have a lovely big corner lot ..hahahha.... every time I got to the end..I turned around and other inch or so had fallen....so I went in for tea and out again...trying to keep up instead of having to do it all at once ... not a good idea to wait to do that. As we know it could dump a huge amount....then we are in trouble.

Susan said...

Oh my, oh my!!!That is a lot of snow! I'm so sorry, really!

Pantherka said...

Wow, that's a lot of snow ...
From the window when one is warm and looks out beautifully when it snows.

missing moments said...

Only the first snow I love ... all the rest, I agree, winter sucks!

Becca said...

Oh dear! Snow would be great if you could just stay snuggled in with coco, your sweetie and your iPad until spring huh?

The Smiths said...

Great photos Catherine!

I love the thought of seeing so much snow, but would probably not want to go to work...

Stay warm!

Kay :)

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

That's a lot of snow! Thank goodness for Kurtis, the hero, to arrive home early and save the fair maiden from her snow dilemma. LOL Men are awesome!!

Kerri said...

It does look lovely ..... but I'm hoping it stays away from here for a LONG Time!

Katy Noelle said...

PHEEEEEWWW! Cat, you really got snow! WOW!
