Still have Snow... and getting more Snow :-|


We still have tons of snow on the ground and more on the way tonight. Where we have shoveled is tall trenches and it gets just warm enough in the day for about a half inch to melt and run down into the trenches. Then it freezes overnight and we have a super slick ice walk way and driveway. 
This weekend it supposed to be in the upper forties or lower fifties so maybe it will melt away.  Will definitely have to get out there and make some drain opening in the snow drifts. 
The birds are going crazy at the feeders these days and we have as many on the ground below the feeders as we do at the feeders. Love watching all of the winter birds! 
This will be the last new photo for a bit unless I drag out my old camera. My son and his family are going to Disney World  this   Friday and I have loaned them my good camera for the trip. I can't wait to see all of the great photos they will be sharing with us.

  2. I saw on Rural Ramblers sidebar that you are from Missouri. Just wanted to stop by and say HI.
    We got about 5 inches of snow last night.
    I liked the heart shapes bunch of roses you did.

  4. That sounds dangerous. Be safe and warm. Glad you guys are getting a little warm up this weekend. I'm so ready for winter to be over and I know you are too.

  5. We may be 60 degrees next week, Carol! Hope you make it through more snow! Stay safe! The starlings are back at our feeders! They only stay for a brief time, hopefully! It has been a strange season! Hope it is over soon!
