Breaking Records . . .

it happened again
another snow storm
several inches of heavy wet snow
beautiful in the morning
a scene stealer a few hours later
the rain appeared  


muskegon broke a snowfall record
for the month of february
a record set in 1981 was broken
with a total of fifty four inches as of today
the month isn't over yet
  snow showers are predicted
just wanted you to know
this looks like me too
just as much as the look you saw yesterday
a warm hat, scarf, boots, torn sweats
and my old faithful
ireland fleece
out the door
snickers and i go
for our walk
just keeping it real

I am impatiently waiting for a two day blizzard. A no one goes anywhere for 2 days blizzard.

babs said...

Oh my....such a contrast in looks from yesterday! You guys got a ton! It can all melt now before next week when we get back!

Pamela Gordon said...

It looks so pretty Lynn. And that's what it will look like here by Friday. You have had a lot of snow this month as we have. I don't know the totals yet for our province but with 3 blizzards and other snowfalls and a big one tomorrow it will add up. You look great! We have to dress for the weather and the purpose of dog walking. :)

Love the snow gear. I looked the same way after work trying to clear off the driveway and ice rink. I wish I had taken pictures before work. I think we had 8 inches this morning of beautiful new snow. It certainly has been quite a Michigan winter.

Heather said...

Beautiful photos... there is nothing more beautiful than fresh fallen snow! And your "outdoor" look is still much better than mine, LOL! Cheers~

Elaine said...

What a beautiful series of photographs. You looked very elegant yesterday - but oh the joy of dog-walking in old and comfortable clothes!

Lynne, you look cute with all your snow gear on. Does Snickers have snow gear too? All I can say is I am glad the 50 inches of snow is not here. Enjoy and have a happy day!

snow here, unexpected, at least to me. I though sleet but am happy with snow. it'll be an hour before I go out further than the porch. have to clear out the stove ashes and lay another fire first, devotions, coffee...morning stuff. dogs can wet on their own -lol-.

Jill said...

Amazing amount of snow! You look adorable all ready for your walk.

Hi Lynne, Loved your post yesterday, and seeing your sweet Suzy. So glad she is healing and getting some extra TLC from Mom and MIL. You made me smile with your dog walking outfit....That's me everyday! I plan on cleaning up for our meeting in March. ;-). Snow...I'm still lovin' it. Your photos are beautiful, a winter wonderland. Be safe my friend! Love, Penny

Missy George said...

Love the snow outfit!

Stay warm my friend.

Have a great week and I hope that March will be a good month for you.

Gorgeous snow photos! Thank you for sharing.

PlantPostings said...

I love it--keeping it real! I've looked like that most of this snowy winter, too. It only makes sense to dress in smart layers during a cold, snowy winter. Your snowy photos of the woods are fantastic!

Hey, what a nice

Just teasing, well it is that's a lot of snow.

Winter always wants to give it one last big kick.


Carol said...

Beautiful! We just got back from Florida so I missed any snow here. Not too sad about that!

We received some snow here this week, but not as much as you. It's nearly gone now. A high of 50 degrees expected today. But we're entering our snow months in the mountains, so more expected this month and next. I love your Ireland photos (you know I would). Those hydrangeas are amazing. Wow!
