Blizzard! 2015

Just when I was starting to think we weren't having winter this year.  
Well,  it seems to have shown up all at once!
It's been snowing, and blowing and snowing since last night.... and it still is! 
Almost 3:30 on Tuesday now, and it's still going!
Feet of snow! (and huge drifts!)
WOW!
I'm loving it, and loving that *knock on wood*, the power has stayed on!  
Gets less fun quick without proper electricity!
So, you enjoy the scenery, and I'm gonna gulp down my cup of tea and get ready for the next round of shoveling.  Had to dig out the rabbit's cages twice already!  Not to mention some places for the ponies to stand... and us to walk.. and I don't really know where my car is exactly...  ???
But I love it ~ and I am SO glad I'm not on a tropical island someplace, missing this!  
No, seriously ~ I'd be upset!
 













No need to comment on my pants.  They make me happy.  :))))

  2. It now feels like a typical Maine winter...Oh the wind, the snow, gusts of wind 50-60 mph and 24 inches of snow, and it continues to fall... more snow forecast for the end of the week...I have to say this... your jammy pants put a smile on my face. Thank you!!! Stay Safe...

    1. The wind has been crazy!! I can't figure out how much snow we have?? The drifts are up to my waist, but along one side the house it's blown down to bare ground! (the wind tunnel effect?)
      You stay safe and cozy as well! :)))))))))))))

  5. Wow, cool pictures Mel. Poor Tonto, the snow is up to his belly ... brrrr.
    Well, I can't help myself but I must comment on your pants. It's the first thing you see when you look at this photo. Love it. Polka dot pants and then wrapped in a stripey blanket. ;-)))
    By the way, the photo at the top of your page (reflection of clouds) is awesome.
    Enjoy the snow! ;-)

      At least if I fall down in the snow in that outfit, someone can find me! :)))))))
      P.S. Tonto's belly is fine, it's quite fuzzy!

    1. Don't worry, I'm plenty warm! I have thermal underpinnings under my spotty pants! And if I get chilly, I hug a fuzzy animal! Ponies are quite warm! :))))

  13. I came to visit from Whimsy Willow and had fun getting to know you from your "About Me" page and this post. I also love winter - since I live at high altitude in CO, I'd be very depressed if I didn't. Hope the shoveling is almost finished.

  18. Wayhey! Whatalottasnow! Its so great to see so much...from the comfort of my warm sofa! We've had very little here in the midlands - so getting my fix in cyberland!
    Fab to see you (and your snazzy pants - I <3 ) and your weather hardy animals enjoying the seasonal snow.
    Hope your electrics still connected!

    1. Yes, electric connection remained intact! *phewww* Blizzards are no fun when you can't go inside and be warmer than you are outside! It was a nice "fluffy" snow this time! (still gets heavy after the first few hundred shovel fulls though! ha ha)

  20. Nice to meet you on your Onion Patch Farm, I am here via Whimsy Willow Farm. I love that snow blizzards, especially on pictures. Here in The Netherlands we have that kind of weather just only once in five years, we had yesterday our first snow of this winter, only a thin layer. Love watching your animals in the snow, I will come back again, another great blog.
