And the Winter Goes On and On and On

If you are living in the United States you are either tired of the winter or tired of hearing about the winter. Being a New Englander I am in the former group.

Everywhere you go in BlogSpace you see photos of incredible amounts of snow and ice. I haven't been taking many photos this year because after a while all winter photos begin to look alike. Nevertheless here are a few of my favorites from the Winter of 2011.

This drop made me think of some earrings I used to have.



I think this is some form of beech not only because of its shape but because it held on.


Hard to remember all the grapes that were on this vine last year.


Usually after an ice storm the ice is gone the next day. Not this year.


Here's Lucy just before she figured out that she could run on top of the snow. You can see how deep it is. This is actually snow fall amounts not drifts, well over her head. She's pretty funny to watch run in the snow. All you can see is that little black head bounding along.


Here's proof I live with a crazy man. He insisted on shoveling off the roof of the garage which obviously has a pitched not flat roof and unlikely to collapse. I kept looking out the window expecting to see a body fly by but I have to admit he has good balance.


Is it spring yet?

Love you dog standing on the pile of snow, lots of snow that is! I love the ice pictures, it is always a beautiful site to see but so damaging. I am sure you are ready for Spring to arrive.

Maybe I should post winter in FL pictures for you, but it might make it worse for you.
I have so many friends from Dallas to RI and everywhere in between that are tired of winter.
Lucy is just too cute...love the picture.

Tell Grizzly Adams he's not a cub anymore and to get the heck off the roof! What a nut!

Hahahahahahaha! I think that's all you can do with that. Married to one just like him. I just sigh.

Greetings from Michigan. That pic of the icicle is dazzling but my favorite is sweet Lucy -- what a wonderful black and white contrast!
