Buried!



The snow started falling...


























The branches of the old dogwood trees are bent to the ground...







Will we ever get out?
...making some more hot chocolate for Santa Baby...

I don't think winter is ever going to end. I finally gave up and opened up my windows to get some of the winter air funk inside. I don't even care that it is 29 degrees out today.

Well, my optimist side says Spring will come! and my pessimist side looks out the window and more snow! We had so much rain last night, and then it turned cooler and started snowing this morning. We expect another foot here in the hills of Western Mass!

Your pictures are fabulous-I call them studies in black and white! Enjoy it! You can recall this time when it's 93 and humid! Sherry

Laura,
Your pictures are beautiful! We're not use to seeing snow like that. I'm sure after a while you get tired of it. It's like me with the rain here, a few showers is nice but after weeks of gloominess and rain, it's like enough already!!
I just wanted you to know I',m having my first blog giveaway and it ends on March 7th. I was inspired by you and your kindness and wanted so much to give back to everyone that has been so wonderful. I really love your blog and it has been such an inspiration. So please stop by and enter if you'd like.
Take care.
Sincerely,
Melinda

Well the pictures are so beautiful but I am sure you are so sick of the snow by now. Today is 65 and so sunny here. Wish I could send it your way.
but tomorrow we get the rain so I better get out and enjoy the sun.

Your photos are stunning. I love the sculptural look of dark branches topped with fluffy white. I'm enjoying snow vicariously these days - we've had none this year. As I'm sure the world watching the Olympics knows!
Stay cozy and warm!

White is beautiful (isn't it?)
Sorry you are getting so much snow there.
I am surprised Michigan hasn't gotten more....it has been missing us for some reason. Your pictures are breathtaking. This is the kind of weather for a pot of homemade soup and homebaked bread (and lots of butter).
I hope Mother Nature lets up on your part of the world soon.
Blessings to you.....

Praise the Lord, we escaped this one! We are excited that a path has been cleared to the gas grill and we are finally going to have steaks! Yay!!!!

Jacqueline said...

Dear, snowbound Laura,
What a lot of snow you have just had. Is it normally like this or are you having an unusual amount of snow ?
I do think that it looks sooooo pretty though.
I'm sure that Spring is on it's way, Laura. It's just been delayed a bit.
Snuggle up with Santa baby and drink your hot chocolates and maybe a little nip of something stronger.
Keep warm this weekend. XXXX

Oh, glad it's you and not me getting the snow. It is beautiful, though! Heard when it snows it is God giving you time off.
Just read a little more about you in Somerset Life. I, too, am a home economics major! Do they even offer that anymore? I went the school teacher route.
I am in trouble...tomorrow my youngest is celebrating her birthday (24!) and she wants to go to Anthropologie! The closest one is two hours away!

That's a lot of snow.......I say it's a movie day!!! It's just beautiful! And I love the quiet that the snow brings to the outside. It softens all the noise pollution.....makes everything so peaceful.

I loved reading all these comments. Your pics are great! I give them an Olympic perfect ten! My favorite snow sport-stomping through new snow taking pictures.

We are having a good storm here in the NE. You captured some really nice photos!

Les Cotrions said...

Homemade ink??? Why not? We could try!!!
Spring is a bit far from you!!! I dream sun but I must say that your iced photos are gorgeous!
Enjoy your chocolate and have a sweet week end!
Baci!

This has been and still is quite a winter for you guys. Wow. It's beautiful, the snowfall and the photos. I hope everyone is warm and safe during this 'end of the season storm', ah but we have March left. Maybe the worst has past?

Wow, am I the only one who doesn't mind winter? I think that weather looks perfect for a big cup of cocoa and a blanket wrapped around yourself, sitting in a cozy chair with a book. Oh wait a minute, that's exactly what I am doing right now, because it looks like that outside my window, lol.
Enjoy your weekend and stay warm!

I was cracking up at your Anthropologie post because you sound just like me ~

Beautiful photos Laura. It will be spring one day and then summer and we'll all be complaining about the heat... I am going to try to remind myself to enjoy it though (may need a reminder!). Have a great weekend and stay warm.

Chatelaine said...

Really lovely winter photos. You got so much more snow than we did in Eastern Mass. I fear we have a few storms left before Winter leaves.

Snow does make everything look so beautiful and it also makes for wonderful photos.
