We had our first snowfall of the winter over the weekend.  While it snowed most of Saturday the temperature was too cold for much of it to stick.  It did, however, render the bird bath inoperable.

It was the snow on the bamboo in our back yard that attracted SWMBO's attention.

Even with all that moisture from the sky, the air apparently was so dry as to make the snow look like a dusting of sugar.

For today's Gratuitous Critter photo I am indebted to the BRD, who sent me over a clutch of bird photos.  This one seems to fit my snowy pictures.

"Aren't we a cool couple?"


  1. Just a dusting. Better than nothing. Do you have snow tires or all season?

  2. The snow shots on the bamboo are lovely. But it is still four lettered word.

  3. We had a dusting of snow here in Portland on Saturday but it didn't stick, a good thing because I had so many errands to run and I drive like a moron in the snow.

  4. Ooh the bamboo is very artistic! Those birds remind me of that "Sisters" routine that Vera-Ellen & Rosemary Clooney do in White Christmas :)

  5. Lucky you! We're supposed to have a "snowier" than normal winter, but nothing yet.

    Those are some cool looking birds!


  6. Clean snow and it matters a lot... I like the third picture a lot.
