Winter is upon us

It looks like winter is finally upon us. We got snow that actually stuck to the ground. It didn't last long but it was enough to remind me that there are some long cold winter days and nights ahead.
This is what I woke up to last Saturday morning. I know some of you have already gotten worse than this but this was bad enough for me, and I know worse is yet to come.
This is the road in front of my house. 

The birds play ground

Squirrely didn't seam to mind the snow so much

We got our first dusting today. I am excited to get more, last year we had over 11 inches by now.I went out and had a good walk enjoying the small flury.Love your squirrel shot, looks like you got a little more than here.

LDH said...

It is true... winter is fast approaching. Cute little squirrel.

Give Duke a warm hug from me :)

BeadedTail said...

What a cute little squirrel! Our snow is all gone but we have more than our share of rain. I can't wait until I see the sun again!

Sandee said...

I don't think I could live in snow country. I'm just too much a fair weather kind of gal.

Have a terrific day and stay warm. My best to Duke. :)

Ann said...

out on the prairie, our is all gone now but I hear more is on the way tonight

LDH consider Duke hugged :)

Beaded tail we've had quite a bit of rain the last couple of days, I'm not too crazy about that either :)

Sandee I'm beginning to wonder why I do...lol

Donna said...

YAH!!! Keep it there and don't send it our way!

Julie Harward said...

Good pictures..and winter is here too, so far, I am loving it! Christmas really carries me through it all. :D

Reeni said...

We haven't seen any of the white stuff yet! But I always love the first snow!

cats of wildcat woods said...

We have not gotten our first snow yet....Thanks for coming by our commentathon!

Grace said...

Love the squirrel photo - hate the snow!

tahtimbo said...

Those are nice snow pictures. I need to get some from around here. We are currently under a winter storm warning with between 2-4 inches here in the valley. Well, I guess I'll be doing some shoveling tomorrow.
Have a great evening :)

Kloggers/Polly said...

Oh Ann - Winter is also with you in November .... what a long, long Winter it looks like it will be. We shall all have to knit woolly hats and scarfs!!!! I don't know about you but I have my fingers firmly crossed in the hope that it will warm up high enough to melt it all and to once more feel a little warmer. At times, I have had up to three woollens on today!

Lin said...

Crud--we were getting flurries tonight too, although I don't think it will accumulate. Whew!

Anny said...

If you put Duke there... if will be quite hard to find him unless he barks :) wonderful pictures of the snow Ann! We are only having rain and more rain to end with lotta mud in the house.. *LOL*

DSS said...

If only all of this rain we are getting would turn to snow! Happy Winter :)

Ginny said...

What a nice variety of pictures depicting the first snowfall! Looks like you live on a well travelled road, and you also feed the birds in style! We are birdwatchers, and I love squirrels!

Zach said...

I already feel very cold by just seeing your photos... Chilling here!

Ann and Duke, thank you so much for your all out support! It's always great to have real friends here in the blogging world. :D

I love a first snow ~ we might get one this weekend. Mr Squirrelly looks like he's enjoying it! The phot of the bird's playground is awesome!

Jean said...

Here in GA we are having tornado warnings. I would rather have snow.:(

FishHawk said...

I had never heard of such a thing as "lake effect" until I started meandering about in your neck of the woods. Be assured that I got all too familiar with it before it was all over.

Philippa said...

We've got more snow here in England, too. I don't like it either.

Russ said...

The squirrels seem to like the snow. That is a great picture. We are going to get about two inches of rain over here. Glad it is not snow.

Catherine said...

Shouldn't sweet little squirrely be curled up sleeping in some hollow tree somewhere???
xo Catherine

Sandra said...

no snow here in south floria but we did get rain at 4 am and now it has dropped from 70 to 60 and going lower. a real bbbrrrr for us down here. 44 in the am but I don't think that is cold enough for snow.

Duni said...

The scene looks familiar. Urrgh.
Stay warm!!!

Shinade said...

I am very familiar with lake effect snow. it's one reason I don't ride with Walter anymore in the winter!

The pictures are pretty and I love the squirrel!!:-)

THE OLD GEEZER said...

Ann, you are more than welcome to send a little snow our way. The last time it snowed in Long Beach, California was 1949 :-)

~Ron

Marg said...

That squirrel looks like he has his meals under control. Glad the snow didn't last long. We haven't gotten any of that stuff yet.
Hope you have a great afternoon.

allotments4you said...

I wish we had so little snow...I'm beginning to forget what colour looks like!!

livintheblues said...

sheeessshhhh.. I better start packing my mittens

Ann said...

Donna are you sure? I'll gladly send you some :)

Julie I am not a fan of winter, I hate being cold and it's very cold out

Reeni it does have a bit of a magical feel to it but the magic fades fast for me...lol

cats of wildcat woods you can have ours :) I was happy to comment

Grace same here

tahtimbo yuck, shoveling, I hate that

kloggers I guess I better learn to knit and I agree that winter is much too long

Lin lucky you, I can take the flurries as long as they don't stick

Anny he needs his sweater so he doesn't get lost in it...lol

DSS I think I would rather have the rain, you don't have to shovel that

Ginny yes my street is pretty busy although it's not the main road. I love watching the birds and my husband is great at keeping them fed

Zach We are glad to have you as a friend also.

marie Mr Squirrelly has a blast out there and he's always trying to gobble up as much as he can before the birds get any

Jean I don't like the snow but I wouldn't want the tornadoes either, Stay safe

fishhawk lake effect stinks :)

philippa winter just seems like it last forever and summer always slips by far too fast.

russ we were getting rain but now it's all changed over to the white stuff

catherine I know I would be if I were him, he seems to be too busy gathering seeds and chowing down

sandra my sister used to live in florida and would talk about freezing when it was 50. I told her I would gladly trade her but she never wanted to take me up on the offer

Duni you try and stay warm too, hopefully we'll all thaw out early next year :)

shinade I don't blame you for not wanting to go out with Walter. It can be very treacherous

the old geezer I would gladly send you some, how much would you like?...lol

Marg it didn't last long that time but it's back again and we're supposedly in for quite a bit

allotments4you I'm glad we didn't get as much as you did. I saw your pictures WOW

livintheblues yep, it's that time of year again

Anne said...

Oh no, snow (I didn't even mean to rhyme). We haven't had any yet and I am not looking forward to it.

B Boys Mom said...

We have a little snow on the ground too. I don't like it! I love the green grass and sun of summer.

Ann said...

Anne the older I get the more I dislike it

b boys mom I'm right there with you. I just don't know why I live in this part of the country

Country Mouse Studio said...

I agree, the photos are great but the snow, not so much.

Ann said...

country mouse studio, I'm not a huge snow fan. It does look pretty in other people's towns though...lol
