Snow Covered Coop – Wordless Wednesday

Last Thursday night we had our first snowfall of the season. When we woke up on Saturday morning, updated to add: WOW! do I even know what day comes after Thursday? I meant on FRIDAY morning when we woke up,  it was to a sparkly, fluffy, muddy, gorgeous day. Funny how snow can make everything look so gorgeous, yet be such a pain in the rear! I guess it has to be pretty so we can live with the trouble it gives us all winter.

The view out my back door when I let Ginger out to go potty wasn’t so bad ;)

nov  2011 first snowfall

  1. Oh my goodness! Brrr! We still have the air conditioning on during the day.

    • And here I’ve been huddled next to the heater… well it’s been nice the past few days but they keep saying things like “artic blast” on the future forecast – ugh

  2. Wow – what a pretty picture! I would love to come visit!

  3. We had our first snow this past week too. It may be pretty, but it did not make me happy, lol.

  4. I love how pretty snow is (especially the first one) but living in it is totally overrated!! ;)

  5. It’s really, really pretty!

  6. Wow, it’s beautiful! I don’t mind snow as long as I don’t have to drive in it. But give me a mug of cocoa and a chair by the window and I’d love to look out at that all day.

  7. Pretty. The temps are up in the 70’s here.

  8. So beautiful! It’s 73 degrees here today and rain, rain, raining.

  9. To cold to soon :).

  10. Sooo pretty!!

  11. I just got all excited seeing that snow. I can’t wait for our first … it’s always my favorite.

  12. It can look pretty the first time… but I still go ewww!
    we had our first snow fall but none stayed (Yippee 4 me) I will be buried in the yuck soon enough. So what did Ginger & the chicks think of the snow?

    • Ginger doesn’t mind to much as long as she isn’t left out there in the scary wide open-ness all by her lonesome for too long :) The chicks – in fact all of the chickens stayed in the coop for most of the day — wimps!

  13. It looks so pretty! But I still hate snow.

  14. I cannot believe you have snow already

  15. That photo is beautiful. As much as I complain about the snow(ugh it will be back tomorrow) it is really gorgeous:)

  16. BEAUTIFUL!!!! I love this one for sure!

  17. Beautiful! I love snow – we’ve only had the one blizzard so far, but I can’t wait for the soft powder coming soon. WOnderful photo!

  18. Beautiful! We love snow!

  19. It looks so pretty – but I don’t want snow until after Thanksgiving.

  20. Gosh, THAT.IS.BEAUTIFUL! But it looks freezing cold too! I can not say that I look forward to snow actually. It is OK for a week or two, but after that it is enough, it can get the hell out of here and I want summer again :D!

  21. Oh my, that is beyond gorgeous. Fabulous shot! We were playing outside last week without jackets and y’all had snow- crazy!

  22. Gorgeous photo!

  23. My condolences, and i balked at the mere frost on my car this morning!

  24. We had snow in October near my birthday the 28th in NH. I had 5″ everything was covered but my mom in another town in NH had 31″ and it was a horrible mess. Then followed with 60-70 degree days – weather has been odd lately
