** A dilettante's journey in gardening
You've received quite a bit of snow! Hope all are safe and warm. It is beautiful, though.
It seems to be snowing quite a lot. Is this year's weather more extreme than previous years?
One of the reason I love yard art is even during blizzard conditions, they just work their little hearts out. Look at them almost buried in the snow but still lookin' good.
I can't decide if it's an "OMG" or "Beautiful". Your Wordless Wednesday has me speechless!
Shirley - from the safe & warm confines of our home, it was an amazing storm to watch (there was even 'Thunder Snow').One - the Midwest has actually been low on snow, until this storm; it was officially the 3rd biggest storm in record-able history.LifesHwy - aren't they the best?!! (That's one of my favorite photos!)Tufa Girl - even veteran Chicagoans were speechless! There have only been 3 Blizzards like it in the past +40 yrs. Of course all the kids were doing the "HAPPY DANCE" when they got back-to-back "Snow Days"!! ;D
Wow - so much snow!! Hope you're staying warm and cozy. I agree with Tufa Girl...I'm almost speechless!
Wow! We had a a small ice storm with some snow showers yesterday. Ultimately nothing stuck, but the streets were very slippery. Your snow is mind boggling!
That is an incredible amount of snow. Stay warm...
Cat - we "are snug as a bug in a rug!" (who knows where that saying came from?!!) :) I am getting cabin fever though -- getting the 'itch' to plan and plant in the garden!Deb - I have to be honest, we Chicagoans have become lulled into much milder winters. Snow like this is so rare anymore - an 8-12" snowfall is considered 'big' these days!Janet - I just keep telling myself that the snow melt will be fabulous for giving the trees and bushes a nice "longggg" drink of water this spring!
Okay. I'll quit whining about our few inches of ice and snow in Texas. You win. Wow! I can't believe that door shot! The shadows on the snow is so beautiful! I got out and took some shadow shots yesterday too. Thanks for checking out my Yart Art Game pic :-) Your comment cracked me up!
Toni - believe me, we were really whiny when we had that snow and even native Chicagoans got stuck on Lake Shore Drive in downtown Chicago! (not a proud IL moment) ;o)
Love your pics Blondie and I'm soooo glad to NOT live in Chicagoland any longer! We did have 2" of snow here yesterday - had to sweep the walkway 3 times!! Most of it melted today - call for the 60s the next 2 weekends. Come on down!!
"Eunice" - you know how I feel about that having to "sweep" the snow off your sidewalk! (It isn't a real snow if you can use a broom!!) You know that 'invite' is a dangerous offer! :D
