Winter Wonderland

We just got back from 2 weeks of travelling to Indiana, West Virginia, and Minnesota. We had a wonderful time. I'm eager to write about our visits with friends and family. I will get it up as soon as I can.

But first...we arrived home with one day to spare before a blizzard hit our neck of the woods. I guess it hit a lot of necks of the woods...like, the whole country almost.

We're snowed in right now. We got about 12 inches in all, but with the high winds we had all during the storm and yet today, we have places with drifts up to around 2 feet.

The wind blew so much that our entire porch is covered with a dusting of snow, right up to the door. And we have a 10 foot deep porch!

We trudged out in 33 degree temps, in snow almost up to my knees, under gorgeous blue skies to take some photos today.

Here's some of what surrounds us today.

This is looking our our living room window

We had a little visitor to our chair cushion on the porch.

We had lots of visitors, all over the porch

This is what awaited us as we ventured out away from the house

Because the temperatures were so warm yesterday during the storm, we got a lot of ice forming on the trees. They have been crackling and creaking all day with today's winds.


  1. Beautiful pictures Judi!! I was wondering how you faired during the big storm. Glad you made it home in time.
    Can't wait to hear all about you travels!

  2. So pretty and amazing. Thanks for sharing the snow.
