"Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful......

And the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!

That is what we have been singing all day. We have been under a ''blizzard'' warning since 5 am. It has been coming down hard since about 7 am, and the wind was in excess of 35mph. We spent the day watching TV as there was nothing on today except coverage of the road conditions, weather, anything and everything dealing with the conditions outside. Of course I had to get out the camera and start getting pictures......I was either lazy or smart :) and decided to stay indoors to get them. However, the wind was so fierce that the windows were snowed and iced over. But they themselves made pretty pictures.

You see the snow coming down looking our at the barn. It was snowing harder than the picture appears, especially out in the open. It came down horizontal all day. The news said we got around 8 inches.  That is a lot of snow to blow around, I'm sure drifts are big.

I don't think we will be swinging or rocking on the front porch anytime soon. But it sure is pretty.

The birds were feeding very heavily. I know they need to eat to stay warm. It was something watching them trying to hang on when the wind would hit around 40 mph.

This little Snowbird was smart, he was sitting in the bush eating the seed that had blown out.

But what tugged at my heart strings the most was this little dove. She lit on the window sill and was looking at me. I know they have problems with the cold. I wish I could have opened the window and let her in.

            Maybe tomorrow I will venture out and see what I can see "outside".....maybe.                                                
                            So from a snowy Indiana we send hugs and best wishes.
