We've Got Snow!

Friday we got 2 to 3 inches of snow.  Last night we got about that much more and today the wind in howling and we are having an old fashioned blizzard.  Yesterday morning was nice, no wind, mild tempts, but cloudy skies.  So I went out taking pictures and after 3 hours and 200 pictures later I returned home.  It was very relaxing after the stressful week I had last week.

This is just one of the pictures I took.  It is of the old building I showed you last summer with the wild sunflowers growing in front of it.  Now the sunflower heads are covered with snow.  You can see the picture from last summer here.



I'll be showing more of my snow pictures in the days ahead.
I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Linking to Weekly Top Shot #60.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time

Barb

Everything is so beautiful under a coat of snow... but, no snow here. We're under a tornado warning w/ temps in the upper 60s =0

I just love the snowy photos and do you need 'snow tyres' to get out in this weather or only when it's thick on the roads? Beautiful snapshot Barb' and I know how much good it does to our soul to be able to get out and work with our cameras like you did

It's gorgeous! I love snow :) It has been in the 70's here today but cold weather expected this week.
Hugs,

I really hope that you keep the snow there and we don't get any. :-) It looks so pretty but it can be so treacherous.

Hello, Barb

I was just catching up of some of your posts. I`m so sorry to hear that your mom has been having a tough time. It would be so hard on you as well. Please try to take care of yourself as you do what you can for your mom. It`s good that you have photography to relax you.

Thinking of you,
Karen

What a beautiful photograph Barb...it looks like a Christmas postcard. We (might) get some snow tonight...and I'll admit that I'm looking forward to it.
Blessings and stay warm!

Look forward to more of your snowy photos.

My children would love to see some snow here!

Brian King said...

That's beautiful with the snow! We're having rain and 60 degree weather.

Sounds like what I've been waiting for over here...but no snow in sight. In fact, we're pretty much still in a drought. In fact, I'm thinking b/c it's been so warm, I might have to go put a little water on my baby trees out there b/c we haven't even had any rain. Send us some snowy photos, Barb!!

Mari said...

It looks so pretty in the snow! We're getting a little snow here tonight.

Nita Davis said...

Very pretty! As much as I am enjoying the warmth of Virginia I do miss seeing the beauty of a winter snow. Enjoy the week and stay warm.

Debbie said...

Blizzards must be unpleasant but they certainly do make beautiful wonderlands! That is such a lovely image with all those silvery patterns.

Olga StarDec said...

So this means white Christmas! Great! I'm a little jealous here! :-)

Sharon M said...

What a great photo! I wish we had snow... and when I wish for snow, you know that's a big deal. All we've been getting is misty, rainy, foggy weather. Not very Christmas-like.

Tanya said...

Rosemary Aubut said...

Beautiful photo Barb in both seasons!

Jori said...

Riet said...

Wow, a blizzard, all that snow. We had a little snow last week but it was all gone in one day.I don't really mind.
