Hazy Shade of Winter, Part III

Before I get to the pictures of today's snow, here's a picture of McKenna in her sweater (a gift from her cousin Mocha):



We started getting snow yesterday afternoon. By the time we woke up this morning, this is what things looked like:




The snow is higher than Kenna's chest, so she had some trouble getting around in the yard:



Here' s a view from the front of the house:



Half of the porch shoveled--I have about 8 to 9 inches of snow so far:




While I was shoveling, Kenna played in the snow:




Here she is admiring my nicely shoveled porch:






My car (I'm not even going to deal with shoveling this mess until later today):




The woods behind the house across the street with trees covered in snow:





Later, I went to the back yard to take pictures. Here are my stairs, which are more like a ramp right now:



A side view of the stairs:




Can you guess what this is? It is my little Weber grill--when I saw this, I started laughing. It looks so cute all covered in snow.



A view toward the south:




A view of the creek:



And a view of the top of the waterfall:





And, finally, a bonus video of Kenna playing in the snow:

Beautiful snow pictures. Especially the 2nd and 4th from the end.

And what a fetching sweater McKenna has on!

So pretty! I love the snow. We got tricked out of any - all rain. I particularly like the video of McKenna out in the elements. Dogs are so amusing when they leap through the snow.
