Another overnight dump of snow but at least for a few minutes this morning we saw a golden sunrise through the pine trees. By the time Pheebs and I had the Jeep's wheels rolling, skies had pretty much clouded over again.
| A BRIEF GOLDEN SUNRISE THROUGH THE PINES|
| IN FAHRENHEIT THAT IS ABOUT 12 DEGREES|
Roads were covered but it was only about half an inch of lite fluffy stuff and easy to drive through. Being Sunday morning there wasn't much traffic around but we did see one car that had gone off the road into the ditch. Probably happened in the night when it was snowing.
| PORTERS HILL LINE WAS LIGHTLY SNOW COVERED|
| OH-OH...LOOKS LIKE SOMEBODY HAD AN OOOPSY|
Our travels took us to Goderich for a swing down around the harbor and a few things at Walmart. Wasn't long and we were on our way home again.
| THERE'S A BIG LAKE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE UNDER ALL THAT ICE AND SNOW|
| CAN'T EVEN SEE THE WATER ANYMORE|
| I SEE AN ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN FACE|
| PHEEBS WASN'T HAVING ANY PART OF THAT ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN .....HE WAS ON THE TRAIL OF A MOUSE UNDER THE SNOW|Spent some time on the end of my snow shovel of course and finished removing the last of the deep snow on our Motorhome's roof. There is a thin layer of ice on the roof itself and that will just have to melt off in due time. If our 14-day weather forecast holds true that should be the week after this coming week where I see temps for 5 days in a row ranging from 32 to 36F:))
| I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE OUT AND ABOUT WITH A CAMERA THIS MORNING|
| A SUNDAY MORNING DOG WALKER OUT BRAVING THE ELEMENTS AS WELL|Late this afternoon glancing up from my computer I saw three Cardinals (1 female & 2 males) close together in a small tree. Knowing I only had seconds to get off a few shots of them before they all split I grabbed a nearby camera. The shots aren't the best but at least I got some images......
| COULD THERE BE A BIT OF A LOVE TRIANGLE GOING ON HERE|
Having just written the above paragraph late this afternoon I now see on tonight's weather news a heavy snowfall with accompanying winds is headed our way overnight and predicted to last into Tuesday. Snow and wind mean one thing....Winter Storm!!
| AND ALSO A QUICK SHOT OF SQUIRRELLY AT OUR CORN COB FEEDER|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Harry Truman was known for his blunt manner of speaking. When he made a speech at the Washington Garden Club, he kept referring to the "good manure" that needed to be used on the flowers. Some society women complained to his wife, Bess. "Couldn't you get the President to say 'fertilizer'?" they asked. Mrs. Truman replied, "Heavens, no! It took me twenty-five years to get him to say 'manure.'"
| LOOKS LIKE I GOT ALL THE DEEP SNOW OF SCOOTER'S ROOF JUST IN TIME FOR THE NEXT BIG LOAD OF SNOW:((|
AN elderly man lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and he went to the parish priest and asked if he would say a mass for his poor departed pet. The priest replied: "I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane." "I'll go right away Father," the man replied. "Do ya think $5000 is enough to donate to them for the service?"
"Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?" the priest exclaimed.
Such beuatiful cardinals. And the busy squirrel. At present it is 7 degrees F in central Texas and has snowed all day. Make you feel at home? Of course it will be short lived here, we'll get up to freezing Friday. With one more round of snow on Wednesday. Just so you know, don't plan on wintering in TX unless you're closer to the Gulf!ReplyDelete
Nothing is built for the temperatures we're having, and I live in an old house. OK so far. Faucets dripping. Power still on. Good to go. I'm old, and have seen 5, but not zero, which they are predicting. Sheesh.
The female cardinals are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Winter wonderland. See what you missed all those years by not being there 😁ReplyDelete
Love the cardinal photos! We don't see cardinals in Montana and only occasionally do I see one in AZ.ReplyDelete
Yay! Spring is coming...ReplyDelete
Your photos sure capture winter well. And those Cardinals are great! We hardly ever see even one. Love the last part of the groaner too.ReplyDelete
Your birds are overweight!! LOLReplyDelete
