Three Day Snow Blizzard still Howling

Hello Everyone, I thought I would share some photos of Our World the last few days. The blustery weather never seems to go away. But despite the frightful weather our lovely winter birds still come to visit the bird feeder. They are a Joy to see. Here is a photo I took from the sun room this AM of a Lovely Cardinal, so beautiful in its shades of winter red. Oh, How I love watching the Cardinal all year long. I truly wonder how they survive our dreadful cold and snowy Western Michigan Winters.
This photos show our neighbor's doors going out onto her deck. There is probably 4 feet of snow piled up. Can you believe, and this all came in the last 3 days.

My poor lovely Autumn Joy Sedums are buried in the snow. My Sweetie blew open a wee path to the front door on Sunday afternoon and now the path is already snowed in again.
This photo was taken at the height of the blizzard Sunday afternoon. You can hardly see where the driveway is or our neighbors house across the street. I reckon you can not even see the road in front of our fence. This is only December and we still have 3 more months of winter. Oh, how I dream of the warmth of the sunny south. vbg There is no going outside today so I will head to "My Sewing Room" and start working on a # 812 Arlyn Embroidery Envelope from Crab-Apple Hill and use some of my lovely wools to create it. I really love their patterns.
Happy Holidays to you all. Hugs Judy

What wonderful photos of the snow Judy. And the blizzard made it all come in so quickly. We only see snow like this up in the Alpine areas. I have some crosscountry skiis that would come in handy with this thick fresh snow of yours. Love cross country skiiing, but have to drive for hours to find enough snow over here. Wise girl staying inside.
Merry Christmas.

Hi Judy, we had the same winter weather here just a few days ago but now we have had rain and the snow is all gone. But I have to say ... what a beautiful and colorful bird you have sitting there, all Christmas red. I feed the the snow bunting every day when there is snow, they always let me know when they're hungry by flying around me singing,following me from the cow shed to my house. Merry Christmas to you ... stay warm :-)
