For My Blogging Friends...

Who are ass-deep in snow...

Here's some more.

These were taken when we were still living in Bartlesville, north of Tulsa almost to Kansas. This was our 14" snow in December, 2006. We do get some snow dumped on us in Oklahoma, it just doesn't last as long.

This was on our back patio. The large chests held our Christmas lights. I had gotten them out to start decorating for the holidays. Needless to say I had to wait for three days to put them up.



I stuck a metal yardstick in the snow to see how deep it was... Deeper than Chloe and SueSue were tall. I had to shovel a couple of paths out into the yard so they could 'relieve' themselves.

They love the snow. They would jump in and bite it and romp and play like pups.








Icicles out our back door. I'm smiling. I like a good snow...



Once a year.








No birds home today... they all went south.

Our home had nice, deep eaves so there wasn't as much snow on the patio table, but there was enough to make a nice photo. Carol's son, Jeff, made this birdhouse for his mom when he was about 10. He's now 34.










This is a cold looking sun.

















I liked the frosty, cold look of this yard ornament.














Snow on the neighbor's pine tree.

















Ornamental grass I had planted the year before. I love how it looked on the seed heads.
















And, for the big finale.... I'm standing under the eaves on the back patio for this shot. The snow was coming off the roof, but it was so cold it had frozen this way the night before. I took this before I started knocking it down so it wouldn't fall on my girls and squash them.




Just wanted you Mainers to know I was thinking about you all.


It does look nicer at someone else's house, ehh.

I love winter and snow; I'm thinking we're being cheated because it doesn't seem to really snow around here anymore. Remember February, 1971? I'm not sure how much snow this part of the state got but we got 3 feet or better out by the panhandle.

I'm with you. Once is enough, then spring needs to appear!

for being such a pain in the ass it sure is beautiful isn't it? I love the icicles pic...never have seen anything like that in real life. Thanks for sharing Helen...

Snow, glorious snow. Wish I could live in it for just one winter. Everyone wants to go to Disneyland? I just want to live one winter in Skagway, Alaska. Yup!

Love the snow photos. Thanks

Great Pictures Helen. Really cool last one and I liked the bird house on the round table. I have never seen snow like that. Makes me cold just looking at it. :-)

Man,sure glad I was not living here then. I love the snow, but that looks like a LOT of the white stuff!!!

Gorgeous pictures! I really do like the snow, but this winter has been exhausting.

I love that you were thinking of us - and that you really understand what it's like!

I agree with Hallie...I still hate snow too!

These pix did make me feel just a little better about the 7 inches we got Thursday, and which I'm still gazing out upon today.

I have to say, that first picture reminds me of two snow-covered pug (or similar breed) butts. Seriously, I looked at it for the longest time, trying to figure out how you did that! I'll tell ya...my brain! EEEK.

I have the same lawn ornament. Gotta love the snow.

I loved all the snow shots!
