A Bit Of Snow

Just a bit of snow so far. But, snow squalls are predicted for this afternoon,
with a 5-6 inch accumulation of the white stuff!
 
EDIT - We woke up to 14 inches of snow this morning (Sunday)
Female House Finch


Grey Squirrel (Patches)

Ela said...

Wow ! She is beautiful and so cute !

Muffie said...

Just one request, Karen... please keep the snow up there. I'm not ready for it yet! We still have trees with their leaves. Cute squirrel, but I still don't like them.

Sylvia K said...

Such beautiful captures for the day, Karen, as always! A delightful bird and I love Patches!! Looks like my little squirrel friend!! Hope you're feeling well and that you have a lovely weekend!

Cute photos of the bird and squirrel. Wish our mountains would get some snow - I want to go skiing!

Our photos said...

Beautiful are the photos of the squirrel and the bird in the snow.

Patches! What a great name for this one. Poor little house finch--wonder how small birds like that can withstand the snow. They survive though! Great shots!

TexWisGirl said...

patches made me grin! eat up, little ones!

raf said...

Excellent images of all your feathered and furry friends!
We just received some of the that arctic front cold from up your way overnight. 8 degrees this morn, but only an inch of snow so we're counting our blessings :)

Beautiful photos, Patches looked as though he was posing just for you, and how do the little birds survive through all the snow? Guess, like you, they hunker down in some warm sheltered spot Greetings from Jean

Anni said...

...and here I am, supposedly here to see your bird photo. But, in all honestly the squirrel caught my heart today. Sweet. Both images.

Robyn said...

Lovely pictures, Karen! I love the colors and facial expressions.

The temps have cooled and the wind has been steady. We has a high in the low 20's yesterday and woke up to 7*.

Indrani said...

Awww... both look cute.

Neat photos! I love snow when it falls somewhere else. :-)

Icy BC said...

That bird is so pretty, and we are having a bit of flying snow too!

RedPat said...

Patches makes the snow look friendly and nice but I'm not ready for it yet. ;-)

Elephant's Child said...

I can't get my head around five to six inches of snow. But would much, much rather snow than heat.
Have a great weekend.

Cool, well done!

Mersad said...

Amazing shots. But what draws me in the most, are the little specs of snow in the background. FULL of atmosphere. Great!

Fourteen inches? Wow. Your squirrel looks like he will make it through the winter just fine though...I think he stocked up!
