That’s right. Bring it on, baby.

snow in front

I have a month’s worth of gro­ceries, a snow shovel and plenty of work and projects to keep me busy.  It’s a good thing too because we’re not going any­where any­time soon.  Do you see our dri­ve­way? No, I don’t either.

What I thought was eight inches of snow is prob­a­bly more like 12 or 14. And it’s still com­ing down. I just returned from a lit­tle mercy mis­sion to clear the bird feed­ers and sprin­kle around some whole peanuts and black oil sun­flower seed. The birds prac­ti­cally landed on my shoul­ders they were so happy to see me.

The chick­ens are just fine in their insu­lated and heated coop. But they were con­fused when I opened their win­dow to the world and there were no col­ors out there—just white. I fig­ure they’ll get tired of look­ing out in a while and I’ll go back and close the window.

For lit­tle dogs, Sarah and Sophie adore the snow. They hop around like bunnies—well, at least until they get bogged down.  So this morning’s exer­cise was some aer­o­bic snow shov­el­ing for a small potty path.

The East Coast is get­ting pounded. If you’re in our part of the world I hope you’re safe, warm and have plenty of inter­est­ing things to keep you busy today.

    Looks the same here except it has stopped snow­ing. We aren’t going to get above freez­ing either which means our roads aren’t going to clear. Beau­ti­ful pho­tos with every­thing so snow laden.

    I love the way the snow high­lights the branches. It’s good you can stay home and just enjoy it. I’m imag­in­ing you like Snow White or Cin­derella with the birds twit­ter­ing around you.

    Robin, it looks so beau­ti­ful and so very, very cold! Harry and Ben are very for­tu­nate to be snowed in with such a good cook. I imag­ine you get very cre­ative in weather like this.

    Do you heat your coop with a lamp or some other source? Our girls are per­plexed, espe­cially since it went down to zero. I want to move them in the house!

    I don’t miss get­ting stranded by snow­storms. That’s one nice thing about mov­ing to town with a very short dri­ve­way. I used to lose my white Pomeran­ian in the snow all the time too

    Hope you’re shov­elled out by now, Robin. Oddly, we haven’t had any pre­cip­i­ta­tion here today, though the east coast of Nova Sco­tia is get­ting belted. Our turn will come. Have fun with it…

    Thank God for the var­ied means of learn­ing that snow is on the way so one can pre­pare for it. I’m very happy that you didn’t lose power. That def­i­nitely adds a level of anx­i­ety that I wouldn’t wish on any­one. I know you’ll enjoy the beauty and change of pace that a big snow­storm brings.
