It’s Snowing !


The snow started at about  9 am this morning and has been snowing ever since and they say it is to continue through out the day and night .

The winds are calm and the temps are mild  -7 °C  or 19°F they say it feels like -14°C  or 7 °F  but not to Miggs and I it was great. We went for a nice walk as it was snowing  ,it was soo pretty and peaceful .

Then we came home after an hour , I filled my birdie feeders , we played in the yard for a bit and  then I took photos  .


                                  Treeing yet another Squirrel  Miggs ?


                                 Mr Blue jay debating when to attack the peanut bowl.

                                    Whilst the other birds peck at the ground for fallen seeds !


There were 4 male Cardinal's flapping around here but do you think I could get a close shot of any of them NOT a chance they are so skittish !


I just looked out the window and the snow has picked up and is now thicker . Guess I better go get Miggs in all though that’s like pulling teeth as she loves it out there !

snowing here, but only the fine stuff. At least it's warmer. Great shots of the birdies.

So pretty. We had a very light dusting of snow here today. At least it is warm enough to snow now!

No snow for us... just rain. But after our week of 20 degree weather (Fahrenheit not Celsius) I'm happy to be back in our normal/mild weather!

Hi Elaine, we got a dusting of that snow last night, only about an inch and we will most likely be outdoors for awhile today. I also filled the feeders yesterday while it was snowing and had so many little birds grateful. It was very entertaining to watch them while we stayed indoors warm and enjoying a cup of coffee. Have a great weekend!

I especially love the last shot with all the flakes...

You get so many different colored birds, very fortunate.

Love that splash of red and blue in the photos. Miggs certainly loves being outside.
A big Colorado Low storm system moving into Ontario for Monday. Stay safe and warm.
