~ 16+ inches

........And the white stuff continues to beautify the northeast ~ the best part of this storm, it had to warm up 50 degrees to snow from the early morning temperatures three days ago.
"Froto" playing in the deep snow. Not sure if he realizes he's a sheep and not a rabbit :)

I plow a swath or two for the cows to get to the feeder

It's getting deeper ~ before long it will be over the fence! The snow has been falling off the trees all day long. Not a good omen. According to the old timers snow falling off means there is more coming. Chances are - their right.


No visitors at this bird feeder -

The bird tree has been a haven to the chickadees and the junco's. The branches are so heavy with snow that the little birds have been darting in and out, playing chase. I so enjoy watching them from my window seat. They have eaten a good portion of the bread dough ornaments.

Its much prettier at your house than mine:) Seriously I am done with it and moving into the tolerating stage right now and moving into complaining mode by the first of Feb. Lake Erie is frozen now so that will help with Lake Effect but the snow has fallen off the trees here too:(

I hate to say I'm glad you have the snow and not us :), but I know you like it.

On the wide mouth 1/2 gallon jars - the health food stores here sell them for the people who are lacto-fermenting and making sauerkraut in them. You might check at health food stores or an organic co-op if you have one near. We heard the other day, that Portland, Maine is going to be the new foodie place, I guess Portland, Oregon is getting old hat! :)

I love seeing that tree decorated with the bread dough ornaments. That is such a great idea.

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
