It started here around 6:00 a.m. and ended before noon. We got around 4 inches here and the wind is blowing it out of the trees and covering what tracks Sadie has made. this morning.
The beauty is hampered only by the wind and cold which is around 29*.
Four inches on the milk house roof and before the wind started blowing it away.
The trees at the top of the mountain are snowless but all of the lower trees on the mountain are covered with ice and snow. It makes a pretty spectacular scene. The flag blowing from the front porch gives some idea of how hard the wind is blowing.

The small birds are trying hard to find food.
The doves have decided to stay off the ground until the small birds knock sunflower seeds out of the feeder.

I made one trip to the duck house and then to the chicken house to take them warm water and feed and it was so hard to walk in the snow! It seemed much deeper than four inches, but my boots are eight inches tall, and the snow didn’t quite make it to the top. The sun is shining bright now so between the wind and the sun I don’t think it will stay with us long. Our weathermen are predicting more by the end of the week.

We lost power for about a minute and it makes me appreciate our utility and highway workers more every day. They’re out there keeping us warm and safe!!

Stay warm my friends!!!
