Snow Day

Since one of my blogger friend, Redlan, enjoys seeing photos of snow and since it snowed all night last night, this morning I went outside and took more pictures of our backyard.
Pictured here is our apple tree. You'll notice a tree house that is now falling apart. When our kids were little, they used to enjoy going up there.


... view at a different angle.


I love how the snow outlined the tree branches in this photo. This is an ash tree.


See what we have to go through every time we get snow? Uncover our cars! We don't have a garage so we park them on our driveway, exposed to weather conditions.


This is how much snow we have after the guy plowed our driveway...about 4 ft. tall which is not too bad, other times it's taller than this.


This is the same angle as the one I posted below, can you tell the difference?

Hi! I'm Grace said...

OH yeah, Nance, this morning we have a lot of snow, too, that it makes all around looks gray and white. I did not take any picture because the cold is unbearable for me.
Have a blessed sunday. :)

Brrrrrrr...I can't live in a very cold place, Nance. Just by looking at your pictures makes me cold already. I have experienced snow in Chicago and St. Louis sometime in the 70's and I was so eager to get back home here in sunny California. They look very nice, thought. A true winter wonderland.

:-D

Hi Nance, yeah I'm back but no post yet just roaming around here. Dami ko na-miss na post mo pero binasa ko lahat and the pastries makes my tummy growlll hehe, kakagutom. I wanted to make enseymada but I don't have recipe too.
Love the pictures of snow...esp you did it in black and white. Glad that we were in manila when the snow storm strikes here the day after we left for Manila,muntik na kami di matuloy. Miss you. :)

Sriram said...

Photo Cache said...

I love looking at snowy pictures too, probably bec in this part of california we never get it. if we do its only a slight dusting and often in the higher elevations.

Nice shots.

Blue Rose said...

Nance said...

Hi Vk
yan ang temp namin this week, 1-2 digits below zero ... lamigggggg!
Oo, masarap ang sausages dyan. punta din kami sa Switzerland noon at masarap nga ang mga chocos nila.

gandang araw din sa 'yo.


Grace,
i really don't mind the cold much, bcause you can always bundle up... it's when the roads get too bad to drive... very stressful.

Nance said...

Brrrr... nga talaga Mari but you know what? you get used to it, your body will acclimate, it used to bother me a lot too, but not anymore.

Keep warm, my friend! :)

ev said...

Para silang yung mga pics na nakikita ko lang sa mga posters o postcards and yet you're experiencing it. Though I see joy in looking at it still I cannot imagine myself dealing with snow. It's cold here in the Phils. for a week now..and i feel like i don't wanna go out..nagfe-freeze ako.hehe! Now how much more with snow.yayy!

take care nance!

Lisa @celebrate CREATIVITY said...

Beautiful photos. Wow, that's a lot of shoveling-lol.

Stay warm.

REDLAN said...

nagcomment ako dito, hindi siguro nagsuccess ang pagpost ko. salamat sa special mention @ Nance. Am sure kapag nakatingi ka sa apple tree, mapicture mo ang kids mo nun, and it makes you smile.

ang kaibahan ng pics ay sobrang snow ang latter.

Happy weekend Nance!

ghee said...

I used to say the same thing about pictures of snow on cards. i used to wonder how snow feels like, now i have my share with snow! :0

Lisa,
That's a lot of snow indeed. We used to build a snow fort, it was fun.
