Oh My ! What A Mixed Bag Of Weather


That’s what the talk of the news is these days  our weather and what a mess it has been . Snow storms  and bitter cold to rain and warm temps to flooding and now severely high winds with damaging  gusts up to 89 km/h with  possible thunderstorms then  rain sleet and snow , WOW ! crazy stuff !  This old farm house is just a creaking and a cracking away as the winds are just a roaring out there as I type here , trees are bending right over hydro wires are being tossed about to and fro  clouds are traveling at great speeds and the sun is taking a peek every now and then   !  But this morning it was pretty and calm with a peek of a sun rise in the east with light clouds around but  dark clouds to the west !

Because of the clouds in the east the west at the back of our house the sun was spot shining on the trees as there were big dark clouds to the west coming  in !

                                        Some of our trees don’t get completely bare and keep some leaves on .

Not to many birdies at the feeders today as the winds keep them away . I can imagine how exhausted  they get flying in and against the winds ! So they sit in the Cedar hedges hanging on riding out the winds till all is calm again then they all come out and it is a feeding frenzy at the feeders and they  are covered with birdies as is the ground below them !

Well hanging on to my hats today and goodness no umbrella's out there or I will end up like Mary Poppins !

                                                                               Flyinggggg awayyyyyy !!!!                     

                                    Until next time when the winds are calmer hopefully soon ,  be safe and have a good day ! !

Lots of squirrels here coming by way of the ground not their usual route through the trees.
Windy is an understatement up to 100km. gusts forecast for here overnight! Yikes!
Stay safe and warm...

The wind is howling around right now,just shut all the blinds and curtains maybe to make it go away ... I don't think so. The snow is all gone and we have had a few rain showers on and off all day. I'm working on a crochet doll blanket for dolly bunk beds for our granddaughter for Christmas.

Yeah. Talk about wind. But it was warm here today -- broke records. I walked about without a coat. That doesn't often happen in late November.

Nice to see the snow go for a few days though.

Very dramatic skies. We got some of the same weather. The winds really picked up later in the afternoon. I wonder what they'll be like when I go.

Such pretty views, even the dark skies coming in. We have had rain, sleet and snow today. And LOTS of wind!

You are not kidding, what a mixed bag of weather you're having -- You're only missing snow, and you had that already. Mother Nature is really crazy, and I know crazy, and I also know what good pictures are, and again, yours are great and fit the post perfectly! :-)

My goodness, you are having the full gamut of weather at the moment, let's hope that it doesn't suddenly turn unseasonally warm!! xx
