Snow My Gosh!

This past week the snowstorm that hit a few weeks ago has finally melted away, but I hear we’re in for another 6-14 inches tomorrow ahhh!  Just when you think the snow is done for the season…  People always say to me, “You grew up in Michigan, you should be used to snow”.  Well let me tell you, there is NO getting used to this fluffy stuff!  After months and months of warm weather and wearing dresses and flip flops, the cold just slaps you in the face day after day all winter!  The only two things I MAYBE like about the snow are:

1) Getting to wear cute boots, scarfs, earmuffs, hats, and gloves.
2) I GUESS it is sorta pretty and can make for good pictures?  Although taking pictures of snow ain’t easy as your camera tends to underexpose due to the brightness of it.

So just for you, I braved the cold a few weeks ago and captured some pictures of the snow around my house.  See how much I love y’all?  πŸ˜‰  And of course, Mr. Squirrel decided to make another appearance!

Hey you, Mr. Squirrel, trying to be sneaky…

You can’t see me, but I can see you, HA!

Mr. Squirrel is covered in snow, ain’t he adorable?  Linking this one up to Sweet Shot Tuesdays:

Sweet Shot Day

Acorn found!  So thankful he is still relieving of us of our acorn problem even with all that snow! πŸ™‚

Mr. Squirrel even cleans up after himself and hangs the eaten acorns on branches! πŸ˜‰

So much fluffy snow covered everything!

And mini icicles were seen all over.

I’m loving the contrast of the snow against the brick!

How is the winter weather in your neck of the woods?

    Love the pictures! Unfortunately over here our weather has been bipolar. No snow since december and it’s mighty depressing. I wish it would snow another 6- 8 inches here I LOVE taking Sae out in it.

    love your snow shots…I’m in RI and our snow is still lingering…with more on the horizon tomorrow! yikes! I grew up in Indiana and I truly don’t think I’ll ever get used to the white stuff…I just like to avoid that icy stuff πŸ˜‰ be safe and cozy! xoxo {av}

    My favorite picture is of the mini icicles! Mr. Squirrel is also adorable of course (: It rained here in LA yesterday and I hear it’s going to get a bit chillier. You are lucky you visited when it was nice and warm!

    The storm is already hitting us over here in Tulsa! We are supposed to get about a foot of snow on top of ice and some blizzard winds up to 40 mph, yikes!

    Adorable pictures of the squirrel πŸ™‚

    Stay warm and safe!

    It’s funny, we’ve had snow almost weekly, and I’ve yet to venture out and take pictures. Just not feeling it this year. Too much of the white stuff at this point :o/

    So many pretty pictures! And the squirrel is hilarious! Not much snow around here since we got 9 inches a few weeks ago, but it’s still cold…

  18. February 1, 2011 / 8:38 am

    Really great photos! I love watching squirrels and other animals forage around in the winter weather (my family always threw apples out by the woods to help them). And I can’t believe there’s been so much snow. I guess this year is a good one to be in southern CA.

  19. February 1, 2011 / 9:03 am

    love, love, love the third pic of mr. squirrel! what lens did you use? you had to have been far away!

  20. February 1, 2011 / 9:04 am

  22. February 1, 2011 / 9:48 am

    Lol well the squirrel seems to be having fun in the snow.

  23. February 1, 2011 / 9:57 am

    That is too cute!!! fat little squirrel with snow all over his face!! I bet he is sick of snow too, We are having blizzard like weather here in wichita, I was having 100 times revelation of calling in and tell my boss that I’m not going to work because my car keeps stucking in the snow while I was driving, yet here I am being a good employee and stuff, I cant imagine later one how tall the snow will be πŸ™
    Spring please come, I’m begging you

  24. February 1, 2011 / 10:21 am

  32. February 1, 2011 / 12:46 pm

  38. February 1, 2011 / 3:02 pm

    at least you got some fluffy pretty snow! πŸ™‚ no fluffy snow for us in dallas. all we had was snowfall turned into hard ice and now it has turned into yucky wet icy remains on the road.

    stay warm, sandy!

  39. February 1, 2011 / 4:09 pm

    I’m done with it but you did manage to make it look pretty cute. πŸ˜‰

  40. February 1, 2011 / 4:09 pm

    hi, sandy! looks like you’re managing the snow pretty well– i’m from chicago, and we are expecting up to 20 inches of snow tonight. it’s been a little crazy! take care! xo

  41. February 1, 2011 / 4:11 pm

    Mr. Squirrel is my favorite πŸ™‚
    I can’t believe the blizzard Chicago is expecting tonight, I’m not sure if I should be excited or terrified!!

  42. February 1, 2011 / 4:19 pm

    Lovely snow photos! It’s crazy out there, right? I cant’ believe it but Chicago public schools actually shut down tomorrow. That hasn’t happened in over 10 years. I never thought I’d see the day!

  43. February 1, 2011 / 6:06 pm

    I’ve lived in Chicago my whole life and I hate the snow. People who get used to it are crazy! πŸ™‚

  44. February 1, 2011 / 6:16 pm

    I don’t know how you people do it up north! Think you need to come back down here for a visit πŸ™‚ Be safe and warm!!

  45. February 1, 2011 / 8:40 pm

    Aww. I feel kind of bad for all the critters in this weather! I hope you didn’t have to do any driving in this weather!!

    I love your neat pictures of the Snow! I live in the South,so when and if we do get it,we go pretty crazy around here!

  47. February 1, 2011 / 10:22 pm

    i actually don’t mind the snow… just as long as i don’t have to drive in it!!!!

  48. February 1, 2011 / 11:36 pm

    Wow, that’s a lot of snow! The winter accessories would have to be my favorite thing about snow too!

  49. February 2, 2011 / 3:20 am

    ha! the squirrel is too cute!! winter is here kind of anticlimactic, it hasn’t been too snowy down here (the mountains are another story, ahah)

  50. February 2, 2011 / 6:48 am

    I have to admit — I don’t miss the Michigan snow! Winter has finally hit our corner of Texas with freezing rain/sleeet/snow. It’s 14 degrees out there right now! Which is fine by me because the schools are closed and I’m getting my second snow day in a row πŸ™‚
