    Snow Bound in DC!

    Its coming evening of thesecond day of DC's major snow storm that may well top the record for this area since records have been kept. Here's a few taken with my Canon G9 and Oylmpus Pen EP-1 all in raw mode..

    Taken this morning (Feb-6) before starting the first of several shovelings of the driveway and walk

    An evergreen out front by the stairs









    and some pics out the back of the deck and feeder, by noon we had cleared it four times and put out seed 5 times and have probably 20-30 birds feeding plus the ground feeders under the deck on the patio they are a little fuzzy cause I was shooting thru glass that was spotted with snow and water drops







    the "holding tree" where birds would sit waiting for a turn at the feeders as they filled up

    Let's see some photos of those 28 inches.

    The most we've had in one shot is 18...wasn't enough to slow us down...us Wisconsinites are hearty.

    Having lots of snow plows and snow blowers helps. Big snow in those southern mid-Atlantic states with little equipment makes for big problems the northern states don't have. But from Kansas to Maine, I'll bet most states and cities have blown their snow removal budgets big-time. Expect few repairs and crappy roads for next year as they move money from road repairs to cover snow removal.

    enjoyed those bird pics RM. Looks like 'light' snow (weight). Enjoy the scene because, lucky you, it won't last. While we have snow down it was modest, frozen, chunky, pain in the ass stuff that's been around a few weeks. One more month and the weather becomes kinder. - Bob

    New England has escaped most of the storms so far this year, we got flurries in the Boston area from this latest mid-Atlantic hit. The ground is bare here.

    OK, here ya go....

    So I got out and about for a bit today after clearing off the last layer of snow from the cars and driveway. Jeanne sent me out for more bird seed, so I took the camera along, just the G9 since the others tend to fog up the lenses going from warm car to cold outside air.
    People were starting to get out but some folks really haven't a clue ...
    even the main roads still had areas of packed snow which had turned to ice overnight.... please people clear the TOP of your car too!!! Gezzzz

    but it WAS pretty out there.....
    went out to Rt. 1 stopped at the store then along the top of Neabsco Creek Wildlife Preserve and home.
    You can tell how heavy a snow it was from the way some trees are weighted down and some of the piles of snow from removal efforts were over my head.
