Guess y'all are waiting out the blizzard too
Great to see, Lili. Must be great fun for you folks who don't get snow too often. We had a bit of snow this year too (we don't usually get more than a slight dusting). We had 8 to 10 inches in one storm this year, which is the most we've seen in 20 years.
Ain't global warming great?
Thank you, David
Yes, supposedly the most snow we've seen in 30+ years
I fear trying to drive tomorrow
If you don't see snow that often can just hear that bird saying "What the hells happening here".
Lovely pic too.
Nice work Lili. Snow must be a shocker for you ! Hope your drive went ok.
Wednesday I was in Bern.left hotel at 08:35
Had to dig the car out then start driving. Navigators give instructions to turn left even if one is driving downhill on icy roads!!! Drove about 200kms through snow
. In frankfurt it started snowing again in the late afternoon.Thursday took a plane,3 hours delay due to de icing and runway clearing.

You all have a ton of it--12.5 inches I heard awhile ago. We had 8 inches just before Christmas--a foot about a week ago or so. We don't get too much snow here in the NC foothills north of Charlotte, BUT--its snowing again. Dadgumit--it was to go SOUTH of Charlotte and give those Charlestonians and Savannah folks 3 inches--they will be thrilled because they never get snow. In the South in US everything just stops for snow of any consequence--airports in Atlanta closing down, other places. I love snow--I came from Pennsylvania years ago here (though i can easily see it in our mts. 45 min. away)--but enough is enough folks. My jonquils are erupting from the ground and camellias are waiting to bloom LOL>
Very nice photos Lili! I know for many people it's a joy to experience snow when you don't get it very often, especially if you don't have to be out driving on slippery roads.
What kind of bird is that in the second photo? Some of the feathers seem to have a bluish-black color.
Lots of snow up here in Alaska of course. Here's a photo I took a few days ago from my front door. My front deck is buried under there somewhere.
Haven't seen this much snow since I lived in VA.
Fort Worth, 2am, walking the dogs.
I ws off both today and yesterday, so my drive was ok.
Lovely shot too
Speaking of Zen I DID drive across town to the archery range to pick up some supplies and practice with my bow.
Been a while, I needed both the practice and the excercise...it was safe tho messy drive.
Snow is so beautiful...till it melts
snow portraits. 2 am. fort worth, texas.
Good Morning All
Here are a few DNG'S of the 11 inches I got here in Hurst (Suburb of Dallas and Ft Worth). The trees took the brunt of it with limbs and branches down everywhere. Also, some roofs collapsed. Many places got more than a foot of very wet snow. Not too many traffic problems due to the temperature only a few degrees below freezing. This was our largest snowfall in a 24 hour period on record but nothing compared to the recent snowfalls in the east coast states. The storms that cause the most serious problems in this area are ice storms when the roads get covered with sheet ice and become flat out undriveable.

From my F200EXR, cropped a tad and saturation boosted otherwise untouched; remarkable DR
This was my first attempt a posting files on GetDpi and I used DNG files which were about 70 meg. I received a message that indicated I exceeded my max size by quite a few megabytes so I deleted all six of the DNG's and replaced with JPEG's and that seems to do it.
