Winter 2014 #3

By handlerstudio  
Our yard, not today's storm (we are now getting phase two of today's snow storm), about 8-10 wet and heavy inches, followed by some rain, now supposed to get an additional 3-5. (How about you, Jenn, a bit west?). This was a snow about ten days ago. Other versions are shrubs in or garden, and a few photos of one of our cats, Rocky, a Maine Coon mix. He loves to go outside, but does not seem to be loving the winter or snow, as thick as his coat is. And, he keeps following me outside. Hard to get him to stand still long enough for a good snow portrait, as one of the photos shows.

And, nice to have a weather resistant camera.

I would much rather have this than what my friends in Britain seem to be getting.

We are in the middle of yet another storm front, yet more rain and gales. Think I'll swop with you for a change Peter. Your Rocky could be a long haired male version of my late Molly. Thanks for sharing Peter. Keep warm.

A truly wintery set of images, Peter.
Interesting to view the various weather from around the world and I guess you are correct, snow is preferable to rain and wet, although it turns into pretty much the same thing in the end..!

Give me snow! We've not even had any really cold weather this winter - just the interminable rain. Massive storm expected again this afternoon. Tongue

Beautiful Peter. Give me the snow anyday over all this rain and wind, least I can get out then.

Even though this country usually grinds to a halt with a slight dusting of snow it would be a welcome break from this constant wind and rain.

I am with the cat--- would not sit long in the wet snow--
We have blue sky today-- and the plow went by about 20 minutes ago, seriously bright out there due to everything being white.

I think your area gets warmer snow due to being much nearer the coast….

And in England, more rain than you can shake a damp brolly at. Assuming the wind didn't take it away or destroy it...

The wind is howling and the rain is beating on the window as I type, and we're not getting the worst of it in Staffordshire!
We've had no snow (well, a few flakes that soon melted earlier in the week) but a little snow is preferable to the deluge we're getting now, breaking all records.

I liked the detail in V1,2,3. Although I wondered how they would look with perhaps half a stop greater exposure
