Snow Day

We drove into the big city on Tuesday to do some Christmas shopping, and this is the sky that followed us in on the trip.   I just had to grab my camera as we zipped along the road.  We were driving into the sunlit bright blue sky, but the dark clouds moved in from behind, and  by the time we were heading home again, the blue sky was nowhere to be seen.
Below is what we woke up to the next morning...a thick blanket of snow covering everything in sight.  I loved it.  The school buses were cancelled, so the kids stayed home, and we snuggled down in our cozy nest until the plows came and dug us out.  Total fun. 
Mother Nature is a great artist.
I purposefully left this wind chime out on the plant stand for just such a morning.   I knew some interesting snow sculptures might happen during a snowy night.
The trees and bushes look so pretty in their fluffy white dresses don't they?

No BBQ on the back deck today, so the chairs patiently wait for spring.
