Yes, It's Cold...But I Still LOVE It!

We've got upwards of 10 inches this morning!
I went out and got these shots...a little chilly...23 degrees with the windchill 8!

we've got 35mph winds!

I had to throw out some fresh birdseed. I even sat out there for at least 10 min. (seemed much longer!) waiting for Mr. Cardinal to come! Mr. Junco stopped by.

Had to take this one through the window!

Hope you're warm and toasty where you are. Think I'll stay INside the rest of the day.

Thanks for stopping!

Stunning photographs of your snowfall, Dawn! I don't envy you though, as I prefer seeing photos rather than experiencing the snowfall myself :)

Stay Warm!

Ahhhhhhhh! I was hoping for these. I've said it before, and I'm sure you'll give me more gorgeous cause to say it again: You are SUCH an incredible photographer! Thanks for the snow fix. I'll send you a bit of the summer winter we seem to be having lately, if ya want some. ;o)

What beautiful photos Dawn! I love the snow photos - I've never had any luck with snow - I think I just don't understand the whiteness of it and how to adjust the camera. Your birds are also stunning - I love "Mr. Cardinal" from inside - such a shy one!

Hey Dawn!

I just sent you a message, hit edit. I spelled something wrong. And, my message is not here.
Please let me know if you received it. If not, I'll try to re-write it and send it to you tomorrow!
