Day 115 - Stayed Close to Home

This morning around 8 a.m. it started to snow.  By 9:30 it was coming down pretty well and the forecast was calling for a couple of inches of snow before it all turned to rain this afternoon.  It is now 11:45, and it is still snowing a little, but sleet is mixed in.

I know that I have been wanting it to snow, so that I can go out and get those great shots of lone trees in white fields, but to tell the truth, because I live by myself and have no one to go with me for a drive out on rural roads in the snow, I err on the side of caution and stick close to home.  For me, the best kind of snow would be the kind that starts at night, and by morning, the roads are clear and then I can get out in it.

So for today, I walked for 45 minutes in my neighbhorhood.  I layered up and headed out.  Walking in the snow (about 2 inches deep) was easy, and because in this area we may get even more, according to the latest updates, perhaps tomorrow I will get those snow shots I want.

When I got home I shoveled the steps and the walk and filled the bird feeders.  I hung the new snowman bird seed feeder that my daughter gave me for Christmas near the dining room window, hoping to attract a few to the front of the house.

It's time for hot cocoa and a good book.
