Brrrr! It's a tad bit cold here in my little part of New England. When I got up a couple of hours ago, it was almost up to 2 degrees F. Now it is up to 3F degrees with a chill of -16 degrees. It's supposed to get up to about 14 F degrees later today, and then tonight will go down to around 6F below zero. Yup, just a tad bit cold!
By yesterday afternoon, we had at least six inches of snow. Joe went outside and cleared off my car and cleaned up the snow with the snow blower. A couple hours later, there was already a new blanket of snow covering everything.
This morning it is still snowing and we have already approximately another foot of snow. Thank goodness, this is a light fluffy snow. Even so, it is making it difficult for driving. Oh yes, there are still lots of "not so bright" folks who do not heed the warnings to stay off the roads, and they will be out there clogging up the roadways making it difficult for snow removal.
People are getting cranky because they don't like being cooped up in the house, and one of the hot water pipes is not working. Well that sounds about right. If it were nice out, every one would be out of the house and in very good moods, and the water pipes would be just fine.
I took lots of photos, through the door and the window of course. Mainly I focused on my little birds around the feeder. These tiny little souls are so much braver than me. Here are a few of the photos.
Here's a couple of shots showing what the second layer of snow was looking like here a few hours ago. I'll get more shots later when the snow has stopped.
Today is Photo Art Friday at PDPA, and the challenge was to make a photo art containing a word that we've chosen to guide us through the new year. Well, I missed that part about "a word chosen to guide us through the new year". However, the word that I did use could definitely make it easier to get through the year. I chose the word "song".
Now I think I will look for some mischief to get into around here today. Aside from washing a few dishes and maybe giving the vacuum a little exercise, I think I'll mostly spend the day doing lazy type stuff. Like reading a book, playing on the computer, etc. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
