Brr!! It's Cold Out There!!!

Yesterday morning I decided to brave the cold for a bit and get some pictures of the snow drifts. It only took a couple min to realize why they say that -15 degree windshield is dangerous!! My hands started hurting within minutes. Also the cats weren't happy about waiting those few extra minutes to get their food!!! But I got a few pictures anyway, fed the cats and the (office) bunny and got back in quick!!

As I said, earlier on Tuesday, we had a nice even coat of snow, around 8 inches. It was really pretty and smooth and it covered over the dead winter landscape. Then the wind started. We pretty much live in the wide open, for miles there isn't much to stop the wind from building and building. So when it gets windy here, we get the full force of it. We went from the ground fully cover in snow to this...


 
 Bare spots and drifts. Still, the way the wind chisels patterns on the top has it's own beauty too...


 I'm not a cold weather person, but if we have to have this cold, miserable weather, then I'm glad we got some snow this time as well. But now I'm ready for it to all be gone and spring to arrive!! Here's to hoping that silly groundhog was WRONG about having 6 more weeks of winter!!

If only I could bottle up our sunshine and heat and send your way. Whilst you are freezing we are cooking in Australia!!

Sunshine on its way!!
