Very Little Color

100_2829 Looking out with all the ice, sleet and now snow the countryside coloring is mostly white...some darker shades appear - but for the most part it is white.

I thought I would share some of these wintery sights with you.100_2793100_2819100_2795 100_2823You can see all the ice/snow in these pictures. In the last one of the porch railing there are icicles on both sides of the railing...seems strange to see it on both sides.100_2810Now this is one flash of color that is pretty against all the white.

I am thankful that my wonderful husband is no longer driving big trucks for a living and can be home with me (and the cats) to enjoy - or perhaps the word is endure - this weather.100_2801
Four months from now we will be planting garden items - flowers and veggies - doesn't that sound like fun. Until then stay warm, dry and full of chocolate.

Beautiful photos. I bet that poor little Cardinal had trouble 'hanging on' with the ice on the branches!

I heard a rumor today that Monday and Wednesday we are supposed to get more snow too. Drats!

wow! You all got lots of snow and ice. It is snowing up a storm here but it is 34 degrees. That cardinal is a beautiful pop of color. I read you made brownies--I did too! It is a chocolate kind of day.

Yes, you have a lot of it. We have a little but being out in it was very scary. I am planning on staying in tomorrow all day long. Your pictures are gorgeous. Thank goodness for sweet husbands.

We're getting it too. Probably 7 inches since 5 pm. I hope I can get some nice photos too. Love the one w/ the cardinal.

It all looks so pretty, from indoors. I'm so glad you sound prepared for snow and don't need to go out in it.
