Sunshine after the Storm

I was able to walk out of my yard today, but not without great difficulty. The poor trees are all bent over, and the manzanita bushes are blocking my gate leading out of the yard. Plus the snow goes up way higher than my boots, and that makes walking very awkward! I did go to my street though, and got this wonderful shot of my neighbor houses across the road.

Is that my van in there? What a lot of shoveling to get that out. I did a lot of it today. I've got another day to get it out. I'm hoping to drive it out on Saturday.

I can never get enough of the gorgeous blue skies behind the glistening white snow.

I'm just amazed at the amount of snow up on the tops of the trees. My photos don't seem to do it justice.

Yes, it is a Winter Wonderland for sure!!

I so do love the freshly fallen snow, a world with a dampening blanket.

Winter weather can a *beautiful* challange - for us two-leggeds, for the four-leggeds, for the crawlers, simmers and winged-ones ... and for the rooted ones as well. :)

Lovely pics.
