Clear Skies (Finally)

The snow ended early sometime during the overnight hourspenguins in snow (3) on Monday. Grenville got up early today – all excited to go out and “play” in the snow with his buddy, John (Deere).

He also beat me in posting the first day-after storm photos. The penguins in the front yard were snowed in and the frog were buried someplace.

Here’s a few scenes from the back yard.

Really nice collection of photos, as usual. I am glad that Granville is still excited about getting out in the white stuff! I am staying home today and building some shop stuff, chisel sharpening jigs for lathe tools and maybe running some ethernet cable to the living room. All 'out of the snow' activities.

There is some beauty in this stuff, but when you aren't used to it, it can be defeating.

Hey Ron, I like 'playing in the snow' cause i know i don't have to if i don't want to. Makes all the difference in the world. :-)

Thanks Mona.

Hi Andie (deodate) welcome and thanks for the visit and the compliment. The snow is still here!

Yes it was (and still is) AC - can we send some your way?

Christer, we like our house as well - thanks! And, your holiday greeting arrived today - lovely photo - thanks!

Thanks Ron for the visit - Grenville has been having way too much fun in the snow with John D.

Steve, being NJ natives we are somewhat used to even more snow than this; however, in our former locations the roads were at least plowed which is not the case here, especially on back roads.

Nice winter photos! I especially like the buried penguins. They look very much at home in it, and have probably been a little homesick for the white stuff.

Elaine, the penguins looked a bit chiled beneath all that snow, but this weekend it will get into the 50s so they will thaw out a bit.
