A Winter Wonderland!!

Where do I start, last night, we got snow!
And not just a dusting, we got a foot, one foot of snow.
Excitement overload.
When I went to bed, it had just changed over from rain to snow.
I kept thinking, how am I going to sleep...I was so excited.
 
The hubs and I got up at 4 a.m., he has snow clean-up responsibilities,
I have picture taking responsibilities.
 
It was still dark so I waited patiently by the window.
The snow was still falling, everything looked gorgeous.
 
Enough jibber-jabber, let me show you how beautiful
everything looked.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I took hundreds of bird pictures, these three are my favorites!
 
 
 
 
So how about you guys, did you get much snow?
Are you excited when you know it's coming?
I love a good storm, hot coco and comfort food.
Last night, I made meatloaf and whipped potatoes,
my very most favorite comfort food of all time!
 
I hope you are all having a fun filled day!!

Perfection! Love the sky in your shots...and the birds, of course! We haven't gone outside yet! You can feel the weight of the snow on those branches. And the close ups are beautiful.

So many beautiful shots! At least you got out. Most people would stay in bed or on the couch.

A foot of snow.

How am I going to think over here in order to get my imagination right?

Your photos are beautiful I can feel the cold and the peace.
Those Cardinals are amazing in the whiteness.

Oh, WOW! That IS lovely! I am seriously very envious.

Yes, I love it when a big storm hits and all you can do is hunker in and enjoy. I love it when the world is shut down for the afternoon or a day...and you just have to enjoy it. :)

Have fun for me, will ya?

Your snow shots are beautiful, Debbie. The birds are so pretty against the snow.
We are expecting snow here tomorrow. Our snowstorm is named Orko.

It certainly is beautiful Debbie, especially the pictures of the birds. Their colors come to life against the backdrop of snow. Enjoy!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Fun to see the snow and birds in snow photos, Debbie. We do miss the ones we used to get in NJ. Our favorite after the snow place to be was Double Trouble State Park. Only rain here in VA. And your plans for hot cocoa and meatloaf dinner were perfect comfort foods on a snowy day.

Sharon M said...

We got about eight inches here. Your pictures are gorgeous as usual.

S. Etole said...

Those cardinals are so colorful in the snow. All so beautiful. Enjoyed your Sunday series, too.

LeAnn said...

I love snow storms except if I have to be out in it for very long. We had another snow storm yesterday and it is really beautiful outside. I love your pictures and especially the bird one. You take such awesome pictures.
Thanks and blessings to you!
