Looking out the window first thing in the morning.
Lots more snow .

And suddenly Island is in another emergency. School closed ferries canceled power outages….not the best way to start 2022

OH cleared the driveway around the house and piled the snow on the lawn.

Little bit of colour in the whiteness.

That looks horrible Klahanie :( I hate snow, it's cold and depressing, not to mention dangerous.
I hope your power is still on and that you have enough provisions in the house and are able to keep warm. It causes such difficulties for people when the power goes off.
I feel sorry for those little birds and all the wildlife really, having to cope with such harsh weather ...
Is it usual for you to get snow like this ?

ooh wow, that is one large dump of snow.
Like Hywel I hope you are nicely 'battened down' with plenty of fuel and food. As we know many plants will be more than comfortable under their blanket of snow ready to give us joy later in the year.

Crikey! That’s ‘snow’…the real white stuff isn’t it! It looks absolutely beautiful, despite causing much danger and stress.
I do hope you and OH are safe, Klahanie. As Eileen mentioned - I hope you’re stocked up well with supplies.
Sending my best wishes and please keep well and safe x

I enjoyed looking at your snow, :-). Glad that you are warm & well stocked up. As you say, all things pass &
Spring is on its way. Happy days to come.

Good that you're cosy on the inside looking out. Poor wildlife.. I hope it doesn't last too long for you.

I agree with Bloomer, Khlahanie! Much better on a post card , but not when you have to deal with it!
I hope it doesn't stay around too long and that everything will get back to normal!
Take care and stay warm!
