Winter Wonderland

I was able to get some great shots this morning of yesterday's snowfall. I went out around 8am, while the sun was still coming up. It's cloudy now, so I'm glad I went out and caught those blue skies!! =]

A view looking down from our 3rd floor "porch."

Here's my feet in our driveway...this sort of gives you an idea of how much new snow we got! I didn't wear my snow pants when I went out...(or my gloves, for some idiotic reason) and it doesn't look so bad here, but it gets worse later!

This is my favorite tree.

During the summer I hang my hammock chair from the lower branch on the left and just swing there and read or enjoy the sun. =]

Another shot of my tree. =]

One of our living room windows with sooo many icicles! About this time I had decided to go back inside because my hands were sooo cold! But...I decided I'd go down to the pond and see what I could get down there.

So I trudged across the back lawn...little did I know (this is where it gets worse) that there would be deep spots that were up past my knees!! Hahaha...guess I learned my lesson...

As I got closer I was able to follow the snowmobile trail down, and if you look closely you can see the someone else did too!

Isn't this just lovely?

I love the last photo of the pine tree. Very pretty. You could frame that.
