Fun in the Snow

This weekend, Virginia and the DC area was hit with one of the biggest snow storms in years. For us, it was the biggest snow storm since we left Chicago in 1979. It started last night and has been coming down for 24 hours straight. This afternoon we decided to go out and take a walk and enjoy the beauty. We thought you might enjoy seeing some pics!

Our house and the woods behind (l), and the poor little Honda totally blanketed with snow (r).

It was really deep! Barb really had to work hard to plow her way through the deep drifts!

With a thick blanket covering the plants and ground, the birds were very active around our feeder today.

The red cardinals were so pretty set against the snow in our fir tree.

OK - that earlier picture was a hoax, Barb was on her knees. Did we fool you? Even standing, though it is pretty deep. We are up to 18" by nightfall.

Our walk was beautiful and quiet, as traffic was light and noise was muffled by the white blanket. Dan wanted to take the X-Terra out four-wheelin', but without snow tires we didn't want to take the chance.

There is no real good caption for this, but we just thought it was a cool shot.

The back yard (l), and our deck (r) where it drifted well over two feet deep.

"Help, I fell down and I can't get up!"

We have enjoyed every moment of it!!
