First Snowstorm: Part One
As predicted, we did get our first snow already.
And, instead of an inch or two, we got hit with a blizzard and over a foot of snow!
It happened on Nov. 9th, and a lot of it has melted already (such is life in the U.P.!)
I did manage to get out there and capture some winter wonderland shots for you!
This is my front yard, under the apple trees:
Looking out my side window at my house:
The birdhouse, full of snow!!:
Looking off my deck towards our lake. As you may have noticed, you can't SEE the lake! (LOL):
For you regular readers:
Remember last spring/summer, when I shared my garden moose with you?
Well, here he is again!: (He is a brave guy!):
We still had some apples in our apple trees!:
"Are you KIDDING me??? And I chose to stay north this year!! Gheesh!":
"But, I do look pretty handsome in white! Who SAYS you can't wear white after Labor Day?":
"Will it EVER stop?":
Tune in next time to find out..........................
