Saturday on the mountain top it was nearly 70 degrees. In late November.
Sunday morning we woke up to this.
Yup....bizarre weather, for sure!
It snowed lightly pretty much all day Sunday, with incredibly blustery winds. All in all, I think we got about a foot of snow.
It was a great day to be indoors by the fire, for sure.
Fortunately, I had done what absolutely had to be done outdoors on Saturday, so I could look out at this incredible winter storm from the warmth of my cozy house.
I puttered around doing inside chores and cleaning the house, happy to be warm and safe indoors.
Looks like my poor horsey neigh-bor was trying to shield himself from the fierce winds by hanging out behind his little barn.
I always feel sorry for the horses when we have storms. No doubt, they could go into their little barn for shelter at any time....they seem to enjoy roaming around in the snow and rain.
If you look up at the top of the window you can see the massive icicles hanging off the roof.
What? It's November....not even Thanksgiving yet! These are like January icicles!
Sitting at the vanity in my master bathroom, my view is so serene. Truly a winter wonderland. It brings me great peace to gaze out at the back lawn and the woods beyond...it settles my mind in the mornings as I'm getting ready for work.
I filled all the feeders on Saturday to keep my poor birdies happy - but take a look at the hanging birdbath - not much sippin' going on there now!
My daughter shoveled a path for me to the flat feeder so I could toss some seed and peanuts on there for the larger birds.
I'm guessing the bears are hibernating by now as there's been no sign of them lately. Whew!
I did, however, see a young buck (white tailed deer) as I was pulling into my driveway the other evening.
I sure hope he has escaped all the gunshots I've been hearing lately in the woods all around the house.
Meanwhile, the snow is swirling around outside my window again, and the wind is howling like mad.
What's going on in your neck of the woods?
