First Snowfall of the Winter

Today was our first real snow of the season. Predictions sounded a bit worrisome, because 5 to 8 inches of snow can cause traffic problems and power outages. While there were some of both, I was not affected very much. Our power only flickered, and although I did go out this afternoon, the traffic was not unbearable. Temperatures were above freezing so snow on the roads melted fairly quickly.

I had put out extra bird food yesterday so the little creatures showed up today to reward me by posing for pictures.

  5. For all that I am a fan of things with feathers - I really like that snowy lake shot.

  8. I love your snowy scenes, though I suspect they are best viewed through a window of a warm house.

  13. Cute woodpecker shot. My feeder is right outside my kitchen window, so I saw one woodpecker last year but couldn't get a good shot.
