Nature Notes: Snowstorm 2010

blue jay on the fence
This is a lovely blue jay I photographed about one week before the storm. And this is the post I wrote last week about a calf, a swallow and the winds, but I never hit publish until Monday morning, right before going out to shovel.
rose hips
Here are rose hips during the early hours of the storm on Sunday afternoon.

I’m so grateful I live in a tiny little borough that plows its streets. Yay to everyone in Borough Hall or the Department of Public Works who ensures that this happens!

  • Wow..that is a lot of snow. I have been following it on TV having hubby’s family in NJ and it is a mess. I love the photo of the blue jay. I hope that most of the holiday travelers can get home soon. What a mess….Michelle

    • Vicki, I love snow! I finally have a reason to go outside. My daughter and I have talked about building a little sledding hill in the backyard (wish we had time to do so).

  • I had missed this post somehow. Snow is wonderful until it starts to melt. We have had lots of it too (not as much as you folks though) and more is expected next week.
    Thanks for sharing the pretty pictures.

  • What a great mini photo-story! You did get a great deal! I hope that snow that Ilana Davita mentions doesn’t make its way across the Channel to us…

    Shabbat Shalom!

  • What wonderful captures, thanks for sharing.

    I love the back of the blue jay, and love the rose hips photo. I love them all, actually, but you know what I mean. LOL

    We had snow here, yesterday, in SoCA.

Please write a comment! I love to hear from you.
