I saw these along side the road before the snows came in Port Orchard earlier this month. I had seen soem on a friend's blog and mentioned that I hadn't run across any. I spoke too soon! I liked that they seemed to be different kinds. . . in shape anyway. . .

This is the icy pond near the Walmart store where I braved the slippery roads and went to buy food we didn't have to cook.
If you CLICK on to enlarge this one, you will see the ice better. Sand trucks had helped to melt some of the snow but if froze again with temperatures in the teens.
This was only one large branch I saw along the road. Reports of many trees falling and crashing into house roofs was horrible. I am glad we were safe and only had to complain about being cold.

This is Sammi's dog house that he outgrew. . .the depth of the snowfall shows here on the roof. The oldest grandson swept the balcony patio before I could take a photo there. This is the second day of snow, the day we lost our electricity before I cleared the driveway.
This is Sammi, enjoying the snow and some of his footprints.

My son and his family live out in the country. All these photos are taken from their yard last Monday because there are no sidewalks and the roads had ice on them under the snow, I couldn't walk around and take photos elsewhere. They have a long driveway tho and a hilly yard. I will have some photos the next two days of our snow. It snowed a little on three different days: Sunday, Monday and Thursday. It was pretty coming down but too light to roll into a snowman which youngest grandson tried to make and I could not do it either. I enjoyed shoveling their long driveway tho. . . Monday night and Tuesday, we had a 22 hour power outage. No fun being in the dark with just candles or sleeping in front of the fireplace with all the grandkids to try to get some warmth but we all survived. Glad to be home again now.
We had a power outage for 22 hours and then the computers didn't work for getting online for two days. I am back home in Vancouver now and will start blogging again Saturday. We had three snowfalls in Port Orchard which accumulated about three inches of snow but it was dry snow and partially melted or blew away in the storms we had. Not good for building snowmen. . . sigh Lots of downed trees and many people were without electricity even when ours was restored. Anyway, I survived and am back home and you will see me blogging again soon.

Having problems with uploading photos so come back later -- maybe even tomorrow to see more. Meanwhile, I'll be out there playing in the snow.

I thought these puffy clouds looked neat. . .
so I took a few photos to remember them, along with the blue skies that we haven't seen for a long time.
These birds were flying around, circling in the air but landed before I could get my camera focused.
This one is being unsociable. roosting on its own light pole.

I found the pale leaves on the ground with raindrops just as beautiful as the ones left on the tree. How about you?
