More Snow Is Coming!

the backside of mr. cardinal as the snow falls.

We're perfectly centered in the path of the upcoming 
snow and ice storm that is forecasted for Saturday through
Monday!  As long as the power doesn't go off, I'm fine with
a little more winter weather!  It will give me some time to
get a few more things done on my Winter Fun To Do List!
I haven't baked bread or had a new flavor of hot 
chocolate yet!  I still need to do my snowflake post
and made suet! I put snow in the freezer weeks ago
but haven't made that snow ice cream!

 Three more weeks until the Spring Fun To Do List starts! 
 I better get busy with my winter fun! ha.

      What would I do with Pat and Orlin at my zoo?

      but Cassie wouldn't have to go.

      since everything is frozen big and small.

  4. I'm NOT looking forward to more snow! The only positive I've heard is that it should stop early enough on Sunday here so the roads to get to work on Monday shouldn't be too bad.

    1. That sounds about right for you because it's not supposed to end here until late Monday morning. I'm not expecting the boys to go to their school on Monday. Stay warm!

    3. haha...oh well, you probably wish you were in Lexington! That's closer to home! haha.
      Snow is supposed to start here in a couple of hours!

      Yes, so sad about Martha's mom....very sudden. But I'd rather have it sudden that drawn out....we've experienced both here. I've thought about her a lot today.

      Be safe...wherever you are! lol....

  11. I've heard we are set to have the same thing, Betsy. I'm fine, I just have one daughter that works weekends and I just hate knowing any of my children are on the road in bad weather.

    Never thought of putting the snow in the freezer for the ice cream! :)

    XO,

    1. yeah, it's always more fun when you're all tucked in safe at home!

      I haven't checked on that snow in the freezer yet. I may have to gather some fresh stuff. ha.

  12. Betsy, that picture is gorgeous! I had no idea what it was until I read it. Just saw the weather forecast and here in Kentucky we are in line for another winter storm, too. Btw, what lens do you use on your camera for your bird close ups (if you don't mind me asking). Thanks!

    1. Well, the mister didn't know what the photo was either! haha.

      I don't have any special lenses for my camera. It has a 26x wide zoom built in and that's what I use. My camera is on my sidebar...pretty good little camera..I like it a lot. I haven't graduated up to the ones with lenses yet. ha.

  13. I like your photo. You captured the effect of snow falling and blowing just perfect. Seeing the feathered creature from the back side adds a bit of mystery to the scene and makes it more interest.

  14. We are not looking forward to the new snow storm tonight and tomorrow into Monday. I thought it was spring time. We still do not have one plant of any kind that is coming up out of the ground.

    1. No, it's not spring just yet, Abe! :) It seems we often get a good storm sometime in March, doesn't it? Be safe!

    1. Winter has always been my favorite...and I'm getting a good one this year, that is for sure! And you're over there in Cali with blooming trees! haha. Are you being soaked by rain like most of the state?

  16. That is one brilliant photograph, my little doll! Amazing! It's uniqueness makes you take a second look.

    I won't send condolences about the weather since I know how much you love your snow! I hope it's magical and safe at the same time with your electric staying on. I wouldn't want you to have to brew coffee over a candle flame! (smiling)

    I'm curious about the snow flake post. You say it's annual but I haven't had the pleasure yet!

    1. Thanks, Vince :) Magical, safe and with power....sounds like the perfect snow storm. ha. And no...wouldn't want to make coffee over a candle....or dinner for that matter!

      You'll have to stay tuned for the snowflake post! It's one of my favorites and magical, too!
