What's that white stuff falling from the sky?

It's been awhile since we've had a decent snowfall that hung around awhile so, Betty, your spruce tree was looking particularly happy early this afternoon with its white coat on.

Picnic anyone?

Love the patterns the snow creates on the spruce trees.

Pasture gate, wide open to let winter in.

For some reason I don't normally take pix of the house from the rear, but here's one taken from near the barn.

For those of you tired of listening to me whine about the winds, please note that the poor spruce tree in the back would like to join me. See how flat the right side appears? That's the direction the prevailing winds, with gusts up to 70-80 mph lately, come from. Poor tree.

You can't see it here but I wasn't thinking one day and put out a door mat/rug on the stumps to dry. It's still there. Guess it'll be dry around, oh, August?

Winter cafe for the birds?
This is an odd picture, I know, but it caught my eye. It's the underneath of the deck, with ridges of snow formed where it has seeped through the cracks between the boards.

Pinecone Snow Hat?

Back out front, the driveway is under all that white stuff somewhere. Yesterday, after a brief snow, the driveway was powdery white but the yard was still green, so guess Mother Nature came back to finish the job.

It's heading our way this weekend. That means it will be warmer. YAY!
