The morning after the blizzard 12.27.2010
Well, it snowed all during the night and it is still snowing this morning. The TV announcers state this will be the last snowstorm of 2010. The winds howled during the night and since we live nearer the coast we got a mix of heavy rain/wet snow, instead of light fluffy snow. Our lights flickered on and off, but we didn't lose our power.
Here are a few photos that I took this morning while I was out filling my bird feeders. It is still dark and stormy out, but the storm is winding down. I feel bad for the robin's that are in the backyard. I don't know what they are finding to eat, as they aren't seed eaters. Maybe they are finding berries in the swamp area in the woods.

It surely is a winter wonderland outside. With a yardstick this morning, I measured 11 inches of snow. 2010 is going out with a bang. I'm not going anywhere, and maybe I will work on some art projects this afternoon. Even kitty doesn't want to venture outside. He is curled up in a ball on the floor near my bed in front of the heater vent taking a nap.

not so pretty now.
