We had our first snowstorm of the year. We have about four inches of snow so far and it’s down to 20ºF (-6.7ºC) as I write. It’s supposed to get into the single digits by morning.

Fantabulous snow shots, Tim!
We are still waiting for our snow… unfortunately it’s now rain which is supposed to turn to snow over night – Gonna be an ugly drive into work for many, I fear.
Thanks, Dale. That sounds like a mess. I won’t leave at my usual 6:30 tomorrow morning. People go nuts on the roads when it snows.
Believe it or not, here too
They shut down the labs at 1 and sent everyone home. been watching the snow accumulate over here for a while. Sophia was all parrot cuddly before she went to bed.
I went home at 3 when it started snowing hard. The kitties have been going out in the catio and coming in all wet. Thanks, Tristan.
Great photographs as always Tim. That is a pretty lady in the blizzard she is posing so lovely too. I really loved that Resa has a tree and it is magnificent. I love the shape of it too. The bird shots are beautiful too. Looks really cold. Big hugs and love to you both, Joni
Resa’s tree is special, Holly’s is magic and Marina’s is incognito. Thanks, Joni.
Gorgeous pics, Tim. Reminds me of the snow we had a month ago. We were covered in it for about a week, before temps got high enough to melt it off.
Beautiful photos. I love the one of Laurie. Stay warm!
We’re trying. Thanks, Michele.
Wow Timothy, I would never have guessed it from yesterday but it delivered and Laurie look like a snow Goddess. Our trees look so happy. so happy to see this!!! Enjoy the snow and can’t wait to see your snowmen!
No snow men in the making. Thanks, Cindy.
Those poor cranes, Timothy. Stunning pictures and the contrast of these pictures to your earlier ones from the summer time is incredible. Nature is an amazing thing.
They seem to deal with it though. Thanks, Roberta.
I’m not fond of snow, but your photos showcase its beauty. I’m one of those who like to see it for one day, then it all be gone.
Right now, we’re getting freezing rain that will transition to snow overnight. Maybe as much as six inches. I’m just hoping the freezing rain doesn’t last long before turning over to snow, or the power may go out.
I like it to go away quickly to which it usually does out here. I hope you don’t lose power. Thanks, KT.
As of this morning, we haven’t gotten as much ice and snow as predicted. And so far, still have power. I think we are in the clear, though, it’s going to snow off and on all day. But like for you, it won’t hang around for long.
What a marvelous shot of Laurie, Timothy. At first I thought it was a sketch. Super photo development.
Those tiny birds feeding on the seeds are such brave ones. In all their tininest they brave these winters.
I was happy we leave the grasses until spring so the little birds had easier meals. Many people mow everything to the ground. Thanks, abvr.
Oh that is so thoughtful yes. We have problems with overgrowth, so it must be mowed down because of the snakes and also some are very dangerous. Nonetheless there is sufficient grass left.
You are welcome Timothy
No snakes in winter, and the snakes we get in the valley are basically harmless. We don’t have many venomous snakes compared to your part of the world.
. Oh yes good for you!
great great pictures, I’m jelous
Beautiful captures, couldn’t tell which of the sceneries I like most. Also like the way, you added the purple aspects, coming ususally from your colourful skies, this time by the help of Laurie. 🙂
Thanks, Heidi. Laurie was the color interest.
These are beautiful. I love them all and love seeing everyone’s tree, the little glints of gold on the cranes and Laurie looking like a wonderful explorer.
You are welcome.
Hope everyone keeps enjoying the snow and you’re all warm enough. Great shots.
We are warm enough. Thanks, Couriers.
So far still no snow in this part of the world and I’m not complaining. But I remember that we had 30 days of snow in March a few years ago. Meanwhile I’m still counting the days for spring…
Stay safe and warm, my friends!
Spring is on it’s way one chocolate and espresso at a time. Thanks, Herman.
Oh, my goodness! Fantastic shots, my friend and paradise is now complete with that gorgeous photo of Laurie in the snow! She colors up the place, not with her outfit but her lovely smile!
…and all the trees…. sigh!
Thanks for the lovely comment, Marina.. Did you notice how incognito your tree is among surrounded by Rebecca’s black bamboo?
Yes I did! Well… it wasn’t name Incognito for no reason! 😉
Enjoy the snow with Laurie and the kitties!!!
Nice to see that snow finally arrived, here in Belgium no snow and temperatures up to 10°C.
Herman mentioned you are snowless. Thanks, Rudi.
Snow or no, it doesn’t stop you from taking cracking pictures though!
Bill, in fort Thomas in KY said yesterday that he had 4inches of snow. It that far away from you, Tim?
Bill is 1,406 miles (2,263 Km) to the east via I-40 (Old Route 66). The storm covered a large portion of the US. Thanks, Inchcock.
Blimey, just had a look, Tim. I think that would have covered England several times!
The cranes in the snow is a cool shot. We are having an ice storm before the snow right now.
Ice storms suck. We experience one in Oklahoma City years ago. It was awful. Thanks, Teri.
I’ve been “fortunate” to be in one too many when I lived in Missouri.
Fabulous photos! I thought we were going to get snow, but the high winds blew all the clouds away. Bitter cold, though! The crane shots are especially beautiful, Timothy!
Wowza! How fun for all of you. The cranes in the one picture are saying… “What the heck?”
Thanks, Nancy. WTH is a nice way of putting it. I think they were saying WTF? It’s supposed to be dry down here!
Loving all the snow shots, Tim. We’re forecast to get 6 to 9 inches of the white stuff today.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. Enjoy your snow.
The snowy trees and winter scenes are beautiful, Tim. We had a little rain last night, but it is mostly cloudy and 34 here this morning. Forecast says we will get some sun today.
Thanks, Lavinia. It was 9 this morning. The sun is out and it’s up to 20.
Wonderful photos Tim and how fun that you have designated trees for your blogging friends! We’re having our first real snow here in Arkansas too. I’m trying to work up the gumption to go out in 16′ weather!
Thanks, Brad. Have fun in your snow and freezing temps. It was 9 this morning and it’s up to 20 at the moment under a cold sun.
Excellent photos! It is interesting for us who have winter and snow from November to April to see how much ‘fun’ it is for those who don’t have a similar climate!
The occasional snow is fun, but causes a lot of problems with driving. Thanks, Margy.
Absolutely beautiful, Timothy! Thank you for sending these beauties along!
You are welcome, Leya. Thanks for dropping by.
Awesome!!! All the trees look so pretty in the snow, Laurie too! ❄⛄🌨
So far we are 4 inches ahead of you (temps down to 17 with windchill of -4). Really like the Sandhills in the snow. Wonder if one of those points to its wings and says “Hey guys (and gals), you know we could just go somewhere warm” ha!
The cranes think they are already where it’s warm! We are up to 21 after a low of 9. It’s supposed to be colder tonight. Thanks, Brian.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful ~ the wonders of winter you capture well!
How much and how cold? We had 7 inches Tuesday night into Wednesday. Temps last night -6 F. Today, 17F. Tonight, -3F. The warm-up begins in earnest over the weekend.
You live in the cold northers. Thanks, David.
Beautiful! We love snow!
Stealing trees. This looks good for the next AGMs in trouble post!!!
I thought you would like the trees. Thanks, Resa.
It really is amazing to see all the life that sticks around even though our wildest storms; you really captured it well, Tim! Great job
Very beautiful! We’ve had some hail, but other than that a mild start to our year. Is snow typically short lived for you?
Brrrr….. love those pictures… Winter is a favourite time… I enjoy snow, especially since retirement and I no longer have to drive in it to work lol.. Keep Warm… 🙂
Snows not bad if you don’t have to drive in it. Thanks, Sue.
Fabulous shots Tim … the pic of Laurie is a stunner!
