Snow Day

video

Help, I'm being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I'm going to have to learn to use video. One of my first lessons -- I can only post videos smaller than 100 MB! I was fairly pleased with my long video -- a tour of the front yard with Roxie, complete with snow crunching sound effects. The little one posted here is Roxie eating snow on her morning walk. Obviously, I've got a ways to go. I much prefer my comfort zone with still photos.

If you're looking out your window at snow, you're probably sick of looking at it. This post is mainly for my daughter Zoe who lives in Penzance, England. They don't get this much snow there.

The storm started out with freezing rain and sleet followed by snow -- about 6 inches worth. The next three pictures were taken at the beginning of the snow -- it had been snowing about 2 hours when I took them. The views from the windows were taken the next day.

Impressive, Elaine! Did Roxy ever tell you why she was eating snow?

Good job on the video! It's all very pretty isn't it, but such hard work living with it!

Beautiful pics, I sent you my e-mail address so you can pick my brain. What is left of it.

Beautiful pics! And looks like we are getting ready for round 2 of our winter storms (or is it 3?)here in Oklahoma. What a winter!
