The Next Day
There was slush sticking to and covering everything. The snow immediately stuck to that slush and made every surface big and small as white as I've ever seen. While I was out there the wind was whipping up so strong that I could feel it right through my coat.
The wind was coming down from the north, and when I faced that way I had to shield my face. You can see above that Isabella is turning her head to avoid the wind and snow. This was one day that she wasn't interested in playing in the snow. She just wanted to go back inside.
When I decided it was time to go back inside, I looked over and saw Isabella hiding by the side of the house to shield herself from the wind. She was having a rough time so she was happy to get to go back inside. She came running when she saw me head for the door, and we both quickly ran back in.
The wind was still blowing hard, and the snow was weighing down everything, including the power lines. My power went out three times before everything settled down. Oh, and a big branch fell off the tree right above my house. I went out later and dragged it off the side of the house.
I planned on showing you blue skies and more birds, but this snowstorm is much more interesting right now. the other stuff can wait until after I show you why winter can be a very beautiful sight. You're gonna love it.
