Snow Again

Posted by admin on Feb 6, 2010 in Musings |

Once again I’m snowed in and sore from shoveling so much snow. You’d think that would leave lots of time for posting, but not so much. I did remove some spam from the comments, but unfortunately it also removed the real comments and I don’t know how to get them back. I’ve changed settings so that comments have to be approved before posting. Sorry for the hassle, but seems a necessary evil.

¬†Despite being snowed in and rather housebound, I have been out to take photos of the white stuff. This snow was very wet and mixed with sleet and freezing rain part of the time. It made it stick to leaves and tree trunks quite well, but a bear to shovel. Shadow is not happy with all this white, cold stuff. He goes out and frequently turns around to come back in. He did try to help dig out … for about 4 seconds. The probability of precipitation is rising daily for Tuesday, but this should just be a small one. Here are a few photos from around the house.

The “blue” photos are from a different camera and evidently¬†I need to figure out the settings on that one. In the first picture, there is a dark spot on the tree in the foreground. That’s a pileated woodpecker that flew in as I was taking pictures out back. What I would have given for a zoom lens. They are hard to photograph, as they rarely come close to the house. What a gift to have one fly in just as I was outside with camera.

It seems like every time we’ve gotten snow so far it’s been when I had the day off anyway. Still is awesome to have a decent amount of snow for once… seems like ages since we had much in the way of a white winter.

Aww, Shadow in the snow! I love cats in snow shots.

That is so cool about the Pileated woodpecker – those things are huuuuge, no?

Requiring approval for comments is SO a necessary evil. Totally understand that one.

Have fun down there in all that snow! We didn’t get a bit up here.

Gah! I hate snow. Last weekend we got stuck on the I40 on the way to Asheville during that snow storm. Now another this weekend! At least I was home and not out and about when it fell. Thanks to the milder daily temps the streets were drivable late yesterday. My dogs hate the snow and and try to pull all four feet up at once when on it. :)
