Snow is a falling!

Not sure if any of you are, or do, follow the weather in other places. If you do then you most likely know that Colorado is getting more than its fair share  of snow right now. As of right now I have close to 15 inches. (and its still falling!) Now this is not out of the question for Colorado. Granted we don't normally get record breaking snow fall in February.... it normally comes in March and April. (Yes we get snow for a long time... sometimes even into June.) I thought I would share with you my moments of snow.

This was about 10am and measured about 7 inches at the time.

This was around 3pm and measured a foot.

Tree got a bit buried.

We have a stone path that leads from the deck to the gate and also to the bottom deck. We shovel it because Lucy won't go down off the deck to pee unless she can do so without freezing. Other wise we get pee spots on the deck.

That's Lucy, our British Cocker Spaniel.

Ironically that is pointing in the direction of the wind, but the directions are wrong. The wind is so strong that moved the directional points. Its actually blowing east, as west is towards the Mountains.

The snow is about 2 inches above my calfs at this point... and yes I am in "Naugthy/Nice" pj pants.

The truck is my brothers' and its parked at the bottom of our rather steep drive way. My car is parked at the top of the street because it was snowing already when I got home from work last night at 8pm. I didn't want to park behind my brother, like I normally do, because my car is very bad in snow and likes to slide around. I wanted to avoid sliding into his truck.

Lucy licking snow, which she loves to do. This is the top of the drive way. Its at an incline already, but it can be hard to tell from pictures. I shoveled this drive way twice before I took this picture.

That is the snow pile that was made from around 10am. It gets piled up at the end of our street.

Tree got a little buried by the snow pile.

Those are the trees in our front yard, which is about a quarter acre. 

That's the decal wood design over the garage doors.

View from under the three cluster trees in the middle of the front yard.

Lucy running around like she is a puppy. Ears a flying.

She has this thing about shoving her head in the snow... not sure why, but she loves it. 

The bench sits close to the cluster of pine trees in the front yard. Its a lovely spot to sit and relax, just not right at this moment.

Time to go inside and sit by the fireplace with the cats and cozy up with my knitting.

Keep warm!
