Snow Day

The snow started yesterday afternoon.  Our house is snug and cozy but outside there is a Winter Wonderland of snow.

The spotlights are more or less buried and the ornaments on the tree in front of the house have tall hats of snow.

The wind was blowing through the night and I am sure our driveway will be full of drifts.

There wasn't much accumulation early in the evening on Saturday.  The trees on the deck are just wire frames with lights and this is how they normally look.

The snow kept falling all night.  I have heard the plows go by several times already.

The lights on the trees look so pretty when they glow through the snow.

I used this photo at the top of this post.  I edited it just a bit more by cloning out the distracting lights showing through the railing at the left side and then added some word art.

This is the view from the second floor of our house.  At the top of the photo you can see some of the lights on the fence at the back of the yard.

The lights were on at our neighbor's house in the wee hours - getting ready to run the plow.

I added a snowy overlay to the photo - do you like the way it looks or is it too much?

The snow is so pretty - but I am not looking forward to clearing the driveway!

  2. Just beautiful Diane!! I haven't seen snow since I was a child. Love, love your pictures.

  3. Beautiful photos! We actually had/have snow but haven't looked at my photos yet. Of course, nothing will be as beautiful as yours. I prefer the photo at the top with the dark trees in the background. Too much on the last one. Stay safe!

  4. Although the overlay is pretty, it is a bit much. I really like the first photo the best. Thanks for sharing the snow pictures with us. It's still pretty warm here - will be in the 70s tomorrow. Wishing you a happy new year!

  5. What beautiful photos. Love your decorated deck when it snows.

  6. Beautiful. That picture of your tree on the back porch is alway so pretty.
