Red Bird in the Snow

If you follow this blog then you probably know that I am a bit of a snow lover. I live for it every winter and try to get a picture of a red bird in the snow every season. Several times a week I go outside and stand on the front porch to see if the mother nature is going to bring me a blanket of the beautiful white powder that is made up of flakes that are as different and unique as we are. Well, it happened last week, but I got more than I bargained for. There was an ice storm that hit first and knocked out power and caused damage around the area.  After several days of being iced in our homes, the power was restored thanks to all the hard work from the amazing local utility workers. But Mother Nature wasn’t done with winter yet.

Before the ice had a chance to melt, it snowed and we got about 4 inches of the beautiful white stuff that covered the ice and made things look pretty. After being stuck at home for several days the snow and ice melted enough on the roads (not really but we had to get supplies) that allowed us to go to the store to get food to prepare for the next storm that was heading our way Wednesday night. The local news channels predicted we would get 3″-6″ more inches through the night and they were right. We now have 12″ of snow and let me tell you something, it is one of the most beautiful snows I have ever seen.  So beautiful in fact I wanted to share some of the pictures I took over the last 2 weeks.

A Red Bird in the Snow and feeding my four legged friends

Here are some of my little friends that helped entertain me during the storms. They are so sweet. Red Bird in the Snow with www.thebearfootbaker.comI love this picture of the lodge. Imagine being in there with all of our cookie friends holding hot cocoa sitting by fireplace laughing so hard we forget about the 12″ of snow outside. Sounds like a perfect day to me!

Red Bird in the Snow with thebearfootbaker.comEvery time the lake freezes over I want to walk on it. I know, I know it is not smart, but I can’t help thinking about it.

Red Bird in the Snow by www.thebearfootbaker.comI want to move all of my things into this lake house just because of the view. It is always gorgeous, but today the snow makes it stunning.

A-Red-Bird-in-the-Snow-via-www.thebearfootbaker.comThe weather has made the last two weeks interesting and even though it was a bit challenging at times I have enjoyed every minute of it. Being alone with my hubby in a cabin in the woods, watching the snow fall, drinking hot chocolate by the heater to stay warm has been exciting. But one of the things I have enjoyed the most is feeding my little feathered friends. As a matter of fact, since I began typing this post this morning, it has begun to snow again and the birds outside eating as fast as they can. I hope the roads clear up soon so I can buy them more food.
