January 13, 2019 we were expecting snow in our area. The city salted the roads several days back and I was hoping to get several inches of snow. We lost our power last night and it came back early morning. I went back to sleep and woke up again to find that we didn't have… Continue reading Ice
This is one of the coldest winters and we had our first snowfall for 2018 yesterday. We got more than expected and didn't have to go to work so I'm out and about photographing the snow. The chicken and ducks are cold and they have to be well-fed to keep their bodies warm, they also… Continue reading Snow
It snowed overnight and due to the warm weather, it melted by noon time. I went out to photograph while it was still snowing early this morning. No flowers were harmed by the snow. As for the animals, I'm glad the snow laid on top of the net. The chickens and ducks were dried this… Continue reading Snow in North Carolina
Perhaps it might be 6 more weeks of winter up North, but certainly not in North Carolina. Regardless of the groundhog's forecasting being right or wrong, it's still very interesting to watch and I'm rooting for early Spring. It's a lot warmer during the day here but still very cold at night. I guess the winter… Continue reading Certainly Early Spring Here
I'm happy with one or two snowfalls per year and this year we had an early snow in early-January. Max loved the snow also, and not afraid of the cold at all. He certainly can move a lot faster than Bo I don't have a lot going on in the garden, and the duck pond… Continue reading North Carolina Winter
I hope this is the last we see of the winter, I’m looking forward to the warmer days. We had a wintry mixed on Monday and this morning we had a sheet of ice covering everything. It was warm today in comparison to yesterday so the icicle didn't stay very long. I’m glad I was… Continue reading Ice
It's certainly very confusing to see the cherry blossom tree blooming in Autumn, but it's not my first time seeing it. If I'm confused imagine the cherry blossoms blooming in the Fall instead of Spring.
We all have different reasons why we like snow. Lee loves it because she doesn't have school, Max loves to eat snow, and as for me it's an opportunity to photograph snow.
Perhaps it's appropriate to call February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall in February. I didn't think we would get any snow this year, and welcoming any snow precipitation heading this way. The snow started late yesterday, and dropped a few inches overnight. Our neighborhood looks peaceful, most businesses… Continue reading February Snow
Bo finally get to use his DIY snow plow. I was skeptical when I saw it at first, he mounted the plow to his lawnmower. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21jPxJLgCD8 He was thrilled that it worked so well. Panning shots I think it did a great job, we had almost a foot of snow.
It has been a while since we had this much snow in North Carolina. It started yesterday afternoon, and within 1 hour of snowing we were sent home due to the treacherous road condition. The road was real bad, even though I have a four wheel drive small SUV I still had slight problem. I… Continue reading More Snow
It snowed on Tuesday January 28th, and it's our first snow since February 2012. This was Lee first time using her snowboard that she received as a Christmas gift in 2011. As I'm listing these dates, I can't believe it is 2014 already, time has flew by. I never knew the snow could be this… Continue reading Snow
