Snow and more Snow

This is what we woke up to this morning, about 7" of new snow!



Just about the whole Quad Cities is shut down. Now the winds are picking up with gusts up to 30 mph. So I'm stuck inside today and thought I would take some pics of my birds.



I have 2 window feeders on my sewing room window that I just love watching while I am on the computer or sewing. Then out on my deck I have a couple feeders along with my suet feeder. I'm hopeing to get some nice pics of the woodpeckers on the suet feeder.

What a lovely idea. I'm going to move some feeders by windows I'm near most. I put squirrel feeders near my kitchen window. Cuddle up and get the hot cocoa ready.

Oh those pictures of the birds are wonderful...I especially love the black capped chickadee!
What a nice view you have!

The first picture reminds me of the Christmas morning scene from A Christmas Story movie.

You will probably think I'm crazy but I wish we would get a storm like that! It's about 16* here and there is snow on the ground but not 7".lol just snow softly tumbling down. I figure if I have to stay in I'd rather have a storm.LOL
Have a wonderful day inside:)

Love the Photo's...We've had SNOW (Love that) but the Bitter Cold Spell has not been something I looked forward to...Watching the birds at the feeders in the Winter is the BEST TV entertainment...Sometimes even inspirational!!!Enjoy...

Hi Tammy,

All that snow is not much fun. Cold temps here too. It was finally above zero over the weekend thou. That was nice.

Love the birdie pictures. I bet they are so much fun to watch. I love birds.

Have a great week and stay warm.
Blessings,
