waaaaahhhhhhh ..... !

We've been getting away with something....having such great weather this far into our winter.... .... but, today.... we're getting a blizzard to make up for that. Well, officially there are 4 components that make it a 'legal' blizzard; one element is missing ....the temperature. It's not quite -20C ...yet. Give it a few hours... and the wind is not supposed to quit...guess it will be a full blown blizzard soon even if it feels and looks like one already ...


















This is the kitchen window... snow blew from the north... swirled off the roof down around the patio and stuck to windows and door... stuck and blocking my view now.. no more nosy neighbour, me...hahahha... they can't see me and I can't see them. Oh, and ...these are not black and white photos...this is the colour of my world today.
Snow started this morning and has been coming down all day..... scratch that..it has been going straight sideways all day. Heavy drifting... blowing it all off the roof onto the roads and sidewalks..


















I looked out the garage door to see if there was something to snap a pic of... snow was piled up against the door already... and blew in when I did.


















I only stuck my head out. After all I had been out earlier...shoveling... I knew what was out there.... just wanted to show you some photos....

Okay, you win. I won't even make peep of a complaint about our day and night of constant rain we're having. Poor Vee. It's time to tell Mr. Vee that you need to spend the winters with me.

I want some snow too! I love snow ... no not the cold and wind. We have a grey sky here today and some drizzling. You made me laugh ... nosy neighbour you say? I don´t think so ... but if so ... that´s good, performing your neighbourhood watch duties. Stay warm! Hugs ....

Aww, you got it yesterday and we're getting it today! Ours is coming up from the south and of course, it won't be as "picturesque" as yours cause we're considerably warmer down here. It's just barely covering the ground right now.

Oh dear Vee, sorry about the blizzard ~ that snow looks so cold, but pretty.
Stay warm and I hope that you have a good weekend.

Hugs

OK I think I better get into bed and snuggle up now. Looking at all that snow is making me feel cold.

How are you this week BumbleVee, are you dug out or stuck in your yard like so many of your neighbours? (I know, I haven't read any of your more recent posts yet... I go through them in order so I'll get there eventually... lol)
