Just snapped these two shots. DS will be a happy camper. No way the school buses will be running tomorrow. :rolleyes2

View out my front door. We're going to have to get out there this morning and shake trees. My poor little cherry looks weighted down.

Out my dining room window.

Steph it looks gorgeous! :)

Yeah, it is pretty, isn't it?

This one is from my deck. Check out the table. I'd say that's a good 10 inches, maybe a foot.


Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to get my little doggie out to do his business. He's having none of it.

He will get cold paws in that :(

I wish I was there :)

If it snowed like that here, I'm sure the uk would grind to a complete halt as usual :rolleyes: It is gorgeous to look at though. Poor doggie, I feel for him as I don't think I'd want to go out in it either. Thanks for sharing such beautiful shots,

Great pics! :teeth:

You are guys are sweet to say those pics are good, but here are some better ones. It is freezing out there, but I did get out early yesterday and took some pics behind my house and on the trail that goes through the woods in our neighborhood. I saw some deer tracks, but didn't see the deer.

School was cancelled for today, but they did a good job on the roads yesterday and they're in good shape.

Doesn't it look like a set from Narnia. It was surreal walking through them. The tree limbs are all weighed down by the heavy snow, and they were hanging down in arches over the trail--made it look like some kind of ice cathedral. It as absolutely silent too.




These are color pictures--wild, ain't it?

Shirley, no snowman this time. They were too busy sledding and then they were exhausted--this is a good thing. :teeth:

Those are nice pictures, but all cameras are fooled by snow. Cameras think that most scenes average a neutral grey, so can't believe everything is white!

Try over-exposing by 1-2 stops if you can, so that the snow looks white. :)

Beautiful pictures!!! It has even made the news over here in the UK!!!
My DF is on call for gritting this week & he is praying its not heading our way :)

The pictures are stunning. I love the snow but we don't seem to get it that much over here now. I need to go skiing now :teeth:

I tried tweaking it a bit, but it didn't seem to make much difference. It just ended up looking even more black and white. :confused:

We've had a pretty mild winter over here in terms of snow...haven't had a blizzard for awhile at least. I think they've gotten a few large storms down in the Dakota's and Minnesota...but I guess there are just less "Colorado Low's" coming are way these days! Great photos! I like the colors....
