We got more snow than they predicted. Glad I don't live near the coast - they got pounded by the storm!

The wind and cold........

That crinkly sound is the wind against the plastic sheeting. I went out to chang their water and give them a warm snack.

Couldn't do anything ouside, so Hubby and I took down the tree and most of the decorations. We just left the wreaths up - didn't want to open the door to get them down!

Snow blowing off the garage roof:

Though I was going to lose my pinwheels!
