Let It Snow , Let It Snow !


Well old man winter has arrived here in south western Ontario . Yesterday we had high winds and blowing snow squalls  and cold BRR ! 

I took some photos yesterday of it snowing !

Fall 2013 November (6 of 6)-3

We could barely see the valley from our windows for the amount of blowing snow !

                               Sparkling snow on the untouched road under the street light !

Then as we woke this morning it has snowed a lot more so of course I had to hang out the door in my jammies to get photos of the pretty winter wonder land .

                             The morning  sun has been popping out as snow gently falls still .

                 The birdies were happily feeding at the feeders . The temps are mild and refreshing !

         Miggs is waiting to go out . When she does this is what she looks like after only a few seconds of being released  into the snow !

Always has to have her face deep in the snow licking it as she runes and walks along  crazy dog !

I just love how the snow enhances everything that once was brown and boring looking !

It is to snow on and off today  ,  the sun is peeking out so everything is so much brighter and crisp looking .

This little Junco is taking a rest on our old tree maybe warming his toes as he waits for the feeders to be cleared of the other birdies !

        The valley is so pretty after the first heavy snow fall  as it sticks to everything and makes for a new canvas for me to photograph  !

Happy Sunday to you! I think you sent your storm down to us. You have a wonderful way of framing your photos; of course your landscape is beautiful too. It hasn't snowed since Friday but is so damp and cold out. I think we are getting more snow this week. Hope you have a fantastic afternoon, evening and week.
Hugs, Noreen

It all looks so very beautiful, but I'm pretty sure that brrrr doesn't even begin to explain how cold it is!!! xx

There's something magical about the first snowfall, and your photos are why, you've captured it perfectly!!

PS: I apologize that I didn't let you know sooner, how much I really appreciated your comments on our girl Annie last week--You've no idea what a help they were, and how much your experience and perspective have helped me to put and keep things in perspective. Thank-you for that!! Take care!!

Lovely wintery photos! We had some snow on Saturday but it melted as quickly as it arrived. I imagine it'll be coming along soon enough. There's no escaping it in Canada!
