Snowy Sunday

 It was snowing heavily this morning so I just had to take a few pictures.  It sure has whitened up the dirty landscape.

My backyard next to the garage





Neighbor's trees




Kids enjoying the snow




Temperature is about 30 degrees



It has quit snowing now and the birds sparrows have come out to eat.


It wasn't much of a snow storm compared to Nemo but they have named it Orko.  They are getting much more snow north of here.  But they have a blizzard warning out here because the winds are supposed to pick up.  We get a lot of wind here in western Minnesota.

I hope all the people in the North East are getting their power back and getting dug out from their snow storm.

Thanks for stopping!  I hope you are having a sunny Sunday!
Until next time.

Barb

Hi Barb. I enjoyed your snowy Sunday photos. It looks very pretty with the snow gently falling. It's a beautiful sunny day here in northern Alberta and we're going for a walk this afternoon in the woods. Enjoy the afternoon. Blessings, Pam

I've been watching The Weather Channel, keeping an eye, 1st on Nemo, then on Orko... we had some thunderstorms roll thru this morning from the southern part of Orko.

Lots of snow falling there, i just love to watch falling snow... too bad we don't get more =0

That really is a wintry scene, Barb! After all of the snow here, there is the expectation of a big melt in the next day or so. It's hard to tell what the weather will be like from one day to the next!

We've been following the snow storm with interest, having parents, children and friends in the east. Out here it's just another grey day.
I love the shot of the children in the snow flakes!

I wondered how much you were fairing with the storm. We are definitely getting it up north! I am glad I don't have to go anywhere today.

Barb I enjoyed your snowy photographs very much. Maybe one day you'll do a little video of the falling snow :) through your window

Great snowy photos, Barb. We were lucky, only about a foot or so of snow this time. I'm ready for spring!

We received a tiny bit of snow about an hour ago, but the winds have finally died down.

Stay warm Barb -- it looks pretty, but I know it's cold too! :)

Brrrr!! That is quite a lot of snow. We had a nice sunny day here for a change. Highs were mid 40s but I loved seeing the sun. MB

Hoping you stay warm, Barb. Snow is beautiful but it gets old after awhile.

Barb said...

Looks like it was falling fast while you were photographing. Trees in snow - so pretty!

Karen said...

Lovely winter scenes, Barb, like little postcards! So nice of you to feed the little birds, too. Hope you don't get hit too hard with that nasty wind. Bundle up and keep warm! xx

Hello Barb, your snow photos are great. Looks like it was really coming down heavy. I guess the sparrows needs to eat too. Stay warm and safe, have a happy day!
