SNawesomeOW, 1.11.11 (continuing COLD)

CLICK EACH PIC FOR A LARGER VIEW...

OUR LAST 'REALLY BIG' SNOW WAS IN 1993...WE HAD A BLIZZARD AND HAD 3-FOOT DRIFTS...
MONDAY WE RECEIVED 5-6 INCHES WITH ALOT OF EXTRA ICE...SHUT THE CITY DOWN, FOR SURE.  THIS WAS MY FRONT PORCH...
THE LOCAL TEENS GOT INTO THE ACT WITH SOME SLEDS IN ONE OF THE NEIGHBOR'S YARDS...THEY HAVE A VERY LARGE HILL THAT RUNS DOWN BETWEEN THE HOUSES

I LOVED THE ICICLES THAT I FOUND OFF THE FRONT PORCH IRONWORK...ABOUT 18" OR SO...

DECIDED TO MEASURE THE BACK PORCH...THIS WAS THE 'LEAST' WE HAD...THE FRONT WAS DEEPER.

MY DECK WAS A FLUFFY SIGHT...

 I ESPECIALLY LOVED SEEING THE EVERGREENS COVERED IN SNOW...REMINDS ME OF DENVER
AND OUR RESIDENT WOODPECKER WAS BUSY HUNTING FOR FOOD...HE KEPT STAYING BEHIND THE TREE...UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WAS THE BEST SHOT I GOT.

TRIED MY HAND AT USING MY 'PANARAMIC VIEW' ON MY CAMERA...YOU ACTUALLY TAKE A SHOT AND PIECE IT WITH THE NEXT SHOT THEN IT JOINS THEM ALL TOGETHER...NOT TOO BAD

THIS LITTLE GUY WAS BUSY CLEANING HIMSELF ON ONE OF THE BRANCHES OF MY LARGE BUSH IN THE BACKYARD...I WAS ABOUT 40 YARDS FROM HIM AND HAD TO USE MY BIGGEST ZOOM...

I JUST LOVE SNOW...THE KIDS ARE OUT OF SCHOOL AGAIN TOMORROW...SO, THE NEXT THING WE'LL BE HEARING IS HOW DISAPPOINTED THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO MAKE UP ALL THE DAYS THEY'VE MISSED SO FAR.  OH, WELL...I'LL ENJOY THE WHITE STUFF UNTIL IT'S COM,PLETELY GONE.

We had anywhere from 4 1/2 inches to 8 inches in our county. Tomorrow (Wed.) will be our 3rd snow day this week; thankfully we go 15 minutes more every day so we have built in snow days. I don't know what's going to happen when they're gone!
