My pc (where I'm at) is next to a window and the sun just came out briefly. So down went the window. This tree is about 300 yards away. It's not snow, it's ice. Prettier than what my point and shoot lets on.

Cool photo Pacanis!

It is icky and sticky at the mo here. This morning, it kept on starting to rain and then not really following through, just like a 3-yr old child that isn't getting it's way and then stops when it thinks you are gonna cave, just to start again when it realises you aren't! All you are left with is everyone out of sorts! If my four other cats would come in and join me and the other two, I could stick the a/c on! But I have dragged enough cats in from under the bourganvillea this week to not want to try and do it again however humid!

I second that! We've seen some of that here, two, and it's a spectacular sight when the sun comes out. The trees look like blown glass with studded with diamonds. You really did a good job of capturing that look.

We've had some snow, and are supposed to get a little more, but it look's like it's really going to get intense down where Katie and Buck are. I think they're in for like 10" of blowing snow.

Well, March is definitely coming in like a lion. We were supposed to have had a heavy-duty snowstorm come in during the night last night, preceded by rain. That didn't happen. Lots of high winds during the night. No snow. No rain. Poor school children were sorely disappointed this morning.

However, the storm came in slower, without rain, and it began to snow in earnest about 2 this afternoon, coupled with high winds. It's been snowing and blowing ever since. If it keeps up like this, we'll get a bunch of the white stuff. With the wind it's COLD! Snow is swirling and the tree limbs are waving back and forth almost violently. Kinda scary, really!

We'll see how things play out during the night tonight.

Buck and I are snuggled in our big family room with the wood stove going, so we'll be comfy.

It's a lion outside alright. I think the lion is coming later and later into March. This snow is really sticking. And that ice pulled down a lot of tree limbs before it melted off and got replaced with snow At least the power was unaffected.
I think I'm going to get a little woodburner for next year. If only for ambiance. They make things so much cozier when it's snowin' and blowin'.
