From Inside My Windows


It snowed on and off yesterday at times and  it all started at dawn , through out the day  some snow was falling gentle with big flakes , then big flakes and lots of it the kind that you cant see across the road through, at other times it was fast and hard with sleet , then little flakes and slow  just a jumble of sorts . So First thing Miggs did  when she went out in the morning was this .

                                                                                    Then she did this !

                                                                                       Funny dog !

                                              The birds were feasting up their own storm as it was snowing !

The birdies were having a great time pecking chirping  , then suddenly flying up all together  in a cascade of feathers into the Cedars behind them at the slightest movement or sound  then all together back down to feast  this went on for hours lol !

                                        Come on guys no need to fight over the feeders I have plenty for every one !

JANUARY 2015 (13 of 16)

      Didn’t see to many squirrels in the snow storm at this  feeder which is for them to help keep them off of the hanging  feeders but the birdies sure did enjoy it lol !

This morning we woke to high winds blowing snow , drifting and biting cold  with the odd peek of sun through the harsh dark clouds we have hovering over the valley ! Miggs was not impressed this morning that her grass paths were all filled in this morning !

Early in the morning at dusk  photos have a blue hue to them this is what we call the blue time of the day when taking photos lol not quite bright yet not dark but blue it is how the snow reflects the combination of  the light and dark  and how the camera captures it !

Any who I took a few more photos of the blue morning  as the wind was howling and snow blowing every where !

JANUARY 2015 (2 of 4)-2

          The street light helped take some of the blue hue away and it added the look of warmer tones to the snow and photo !  I didn’t see or hear the school bus go by I guess the buses might of been cancelled !

                                    Some of this is indoor reflection and snow blowing off of the pergola lol .

The sun is shining through cracks in the clouds now and the snow is flying around in the winds  , the winds have been gusting up to 41 km/h  or 25 mph  and temps are -8°C Feels like –17 or 16°F  Feels like 1 . I am usually for some of the day  each day on the outside of the windows not this morning , I think  Miggs and I will just stay in and cozy on the inside of the windows  in hopes the wind dies down the sun shines more and we can go for our walk in the afternoon and again be on the outside of the windows lol  .

                                               So that is what it is from my windows , what’s it like from your windows ?

                                                                                      Until next time

Morning, love dogs frolicking in the snow, way to go Miggs. Such pretty pictures of the birds, here not to many now. Have a great weekend, Blessings Francine.

Hi Elaine - it's much the same here. Blowing snow and drifting across the roads is making travel difficult. I love your squirrel feeder. I think I will get the retired-guy to make me one like that for my bandits. I don't see a lot of them at the feeders but there is a little red guy and the odd black or grey one show up. I feel bad for them all today and am not out there to maintain the feeders. I'm hoping there is still some food for them. I'll be going out tomorrow and fill them all to the brim. That Miggs is a funny one. Our old dog does not play in the snow anymore. Sad to see the changes as they age. Enjoy your walk today. I think I'll do the same. Deb

Miggs knows the value of a good snow roll!

We started getting snow in the afternoon, and it kept going on through the evening and into the night. It's a little less heavy today, but the winds are blowing.

Love your dog rolling in the snow, that's what they like just fun. Brrr it's cold out there and so much snow, best thing to look from the windows to the birds, I see there are also some of those gorgeous Cardinals.

Dogs just love to roll in the snow. So fun to watch them. Our dog use to lie down and push himself down the snowbank. Silly boy. It's just starting to snow here lightly and it will be snowing until later tomorrow afternoon. 20-25cm coming. Yikes! Have a great weekend.
