It's Really Winter!

I have to say, I am loving this winter day more than I have any in the last two decades.  It actually looks and feels like winter in Michigan!  The last four or five years, especially, have been atypically warm.  It sure is nice to get a good accumulation of snow again.

Here are a couple of pictures to show what it looks like at this little place here today.  At least, in the minutes I took the pictures.  Because with the wind what it is, the snow is continually blowing and shifting.  We have had several white outs in the last two hours.

The teenager parking, complete with snowed-in vehicles.  DH can be seen in the background, plowing snow so I can get to the chicken coop without carrying the waterer through thigh-deep drifts.

A view on our deck.  Snow has blown up there (floor of this deck is about 10' off the ground, above the basement walkout) and is higher than the seats on the picnic table.

Meanwhile, all the schools are closed, as well as a large number of the local businesses.  Even DH did not have to go into work today.  I, however, did, as horses still need food and fresh water no matter what the weather conditions.
