You have more snow than we do!

Wow! Take it from a Canadian, that counts as "real" snow and quite a bit of it :) The animals must be most confused!

You can also take it from a native Upstate New Yorker.

How are the trees holding up? We've had four episodes of snow that sticks here in Boulder Creek in the past decade, so it's fairly rare, and the trees aren't ready to handle it well. We have numerous fallen trees/snapped limbs/power failures when it snows, and I imagine the same thing is happening in your winter wonderland.

It was just a spectacularly beautiful transformation ... but, Catherine, by the time you commented, i bet we once again had less snow that you did!

The trees did carry an enormous load of it. You can see in the photo of our lane (which i forgot to size down!) that the flakes, big, poufy and wet, got caught where there was thick tree cover and never got to the ground at all. The speed of the melt had a lot to do with the lack of damage. More photos when i get to changing the camera batteries and loading them on.

Amazing! My parents sent me pictures of their snowfall in Atlanta. Mom said the line at Kroger was out the door! (Love that last shot, by the way!)
