Survived the "Blizzard"

This is what a blizzard looks like.  Lots and lots of wind.   I wanted to get a picture of one of the little snownados that kept blowing around.  This is as close as I could get.  The two little bumps in the road are Bumble and Zippy.  Lots of large snow drifts around.  

The only place the wind was not blowing was on the narrow road that connects our driveway to the main road.  We were happy to walk there.  Bumble's coat and whiskers were covered in snow by the time we made it there.  

The horses went out to eat and then came straight back into the barn.  

Along the road.

Not wanting to go out.  

Oracle is always the first one to venture out.  

This was a day after the storm.  The snow is building up on the sides of the road and it is becoming difficult to get out.  Our tractor is still broken and our wonderful neighbor plowed our drive.  Thank you wonderful neighbor.  

Bumble was trying to take a shortcut through the snow drift and it did not work out.  She face planted once and then tried again.  That little round place in the snow is the imprint of her head.  

Bumble and Gus out for a stroll.  

This ice is coming off of our roof and is very interesting.  Also a little dangerous.  

We were having a nice breakfast and something outside caught our eye.  May and the rest of the gang had gotten out and were casually strolling around in the front yard.   I think they wanted in to come in the house!  Excuse me.....please clean up that mess that you left in the driveway.  

Here are May and Danza following Brian back to the barn.  

While the snow was falling, I decided to work on another painting.   It is a little blue, but I like it.  

One of these days, I am going to finish taking down the Christmas lights!  Oh I almost forgot.....we are getting more snow......


  1. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I'm not aware of the new faux bois installation by Carlos Cortes, but I'll look for it the next time I am there. Do you know where on the Riverwalk it is located? I will photograph it when I find it.

    I am familiar with the work of Dionicio Rodriguez throughout SA. (You've probably already seen the book on his work). I tried to take a workshop with Donald Tucker the year before last in CO but the timing did not work out. I have big faux bois plans for this place, and am excited to see some of your work--lovely!

    The snow pics are amazing, and Bumble makes me laugh! Stay warm!
