Spring Snowstorm


It started snow around 3:30 this afternoon. We were driving home from Flash's obedience lesson followed by a little shopping. By the time we got in the house and put things away, big flakes were coming down. I filled a couple of bird feeders and came inside to dry off.

I took these pictures from the living room using a zoom lens. At 5:00, I spotted Sonny across the lake, feeding the geese in spite of the snow. They count on him and so do the feral cats. We've seen them all watching for him.

That is some serious snow!

The seasons on both ends of the world seems a little slow to realise the proper season.

I'm a little tired of these spring snow storms, but you can't deny they are beautiful! You got some great shots of this one. Love how it's a vertical blanket of white.

It started snowing here early this morning. Fortunately we haven't gotten as much as you have. Your photos are marvelous.

I love that first photo with the stark black lines of the bench and the tree branches against all the white of the snow. Great shot!

Wow! We got the same storm, but it wasn't as bad here.
