snow, snow, go away

I took this a couple of hours ago. It's snowed a lot this winter, not as much as south of here where they got 14 inches in one storm, and one of my friends wrecked her new car in an accident, but enough to be sick of it and wanting spring. The temperature has only gotten above freezing a couple of days this month, and once it rained and then froze on the roads the next day, there were a lot of accidents that day. The snow is pretty to look at, but it makes roads dangerous, slick and unpredictable. Even though it was still snowing when i took this, you can see the animal tracks in it, they want their seeds even when it's cold and snowing. ;)

I know i've slacked a lot about posting, but with cold and snowy on top of depression, it makes it hard to want to go out in the cold and look for things to photograph.

Christmas lights

This is my first attempt at getting a good picture of some of the Christmas lights in town, i took this last night, and it was very cold at 9F (-13C) so i may have rushed it a little. I drove around looking for the most interesting ones, but was having a hard time, the cold was distracting and i was starting to get a headache. So i cut it short. I hope to get out and get several of the displays. The colored lights make the grey of winter, with snow and no leaves on the trees, more interesting and bearable.

Cold plastic flamingo

Here is my glowing plastic flamingo in my back yard, getting chilly. It's been cold and snowing every other day for a while now, so the snow is piling up, and i never know what to take photos of in the snow, it being all white and all. Hopefully i'll get a bit more creative as i get used to it, at least as used to it as i can.

More snow

This squirrel seems to feel the same i do about it snowing again. We are supposed to get three to seven inches, which is about what we got last time, but this time hopefully without the freezing rain.

It's officially snowing now, with the snow several inches already, with this to continue another day or two. I like how snow looks, but not having to brave bad roads and bad drivers in this weather. Shoveling isn't too fun either, it can be heavier than it looks really.

Right now i'm feeling pretty envious of those in warmer climates, and i'm sure that feeling will last until spring starts to roll around. ;)
