Oh, baby its a white world.....

The above was taken was taken at 12:58 a.m. yesterday morn...it is a handheld shot off my front porch. I like it a lot...and would love to have walked the neighborhood taking more, but it was snowing too hard to have the camera out in it.
These were taken over in Illinois...as we were driving down the road above we were thinking all kinds of titles for it but sadly I cannot remember any except something about Edge of the World and wondering if this is how Columbus felt.
You have to click this to get a better view...although you will still wonder why I posted it...it is just to show how hard it was to see. I have some I took before we were this close, and I fear you could not even see it.
These trees just a bit farther down the road, and this was actually probably not even the length of a football field away. I love the misty feel of it.
And this one was taken late yesterday evening after we got back to the house...at 3:53 pm. It snowed all day long...never hard...but the ground was warm and the snow melted all day long sidewalks and paved areas were warm, and the snow on them melted all day long....but last night I started hearing the crunch of tires as the snow and slush froze.

It is a cold, cold world out there this day...the birds are flocking to the feeders. I see my little Jenny Wren out there...she is a Carolina Wren. I always name them Jenny...I don't know where got that but I heard someone else or read someone else calling them Jenny. So I just give them that as a name. I am hoping she stays here through the summer.

It is so cold the cats are staying inside with barely a thought to going outside. If they do go, they don't stay long, they don't come to the door begging us to come outside either. They come in and are glad to stay inside for a good long while.

we had some snow yesterday too. but, it only amounted to about an inch. i'm hoping i'll get to see at least one BIG snow this season. i can't believe how hard it was snowing though. can't hardly see those trees. have a great day.

Oh how gorgeous, Rose... I love that kind of snow which clings to everything. We are having a few flurries today --but no accumulation. You know that I am disappointed since I love snow so much. It all went east of us... Oh Well....

Love your pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

I like those shots with the trees just barely visible through the snow. The ruts are too familiar to me.
The snow does make the birds appreciate the feeders and I evens saw one taking bath in my heated bird bath! I couldn't get my camera quickly to get that picture! :-)

Judy said...

Wow, the snow pictures look almost like what we saw the other day. Sadie loves it outside and can't get enough of the snow.

my goodness gracious, it IS a white world out there! there's no snow in the forecast around here, hardly ever is either. i don't like the freezing temps cuz i don't do cold & i don't like the high heat bills in the winter, but i do like the snow & how pretty it is

A piece of news said...

Those are chilly and beautifully stark. I think people imagine I am being snarky when I say this, but I'm not: last winter was brutal here in Iowa and I'm totally over it. I don't care how pretty it is, the longer it stays elsewhere the happier I will be. I love seeing it and I'm glad I got to.

wow...you really got some snow! We barely got a tiny dusting..which is Ok with me. I'm not ready for snow yet. Love the photos of the trees in the mist and snow.

Jacob said...

Okay, these photos are what I meant about whiteout conditions...wow. I remember driving in this weather but that was a long time ago...wouldn't want to do it now.

And what were you doing out in the cold at one o'clock in the morning...you know that makes you a "real" photographer! :-)

We're getting slammed by lake effect snowfall!

LOL, your pictures are beautiful! but they remind me why I am a California girl.

Neal said...

I really like the top picture also. I don't know how to feel about the rest ... those trees look awful lonely and cold. :)
