Day 2 of snow
…lots of snow,
non stop snow
the persistent snow
Gandalf under snow siege!

I’m off to play!
…wait mom, you forgot to add me running in the snow! Duh… humans….

Thank you! 🙂
Ahh, poor old Gandalf! Still he looks fab in white!
Okay, Hera running in the snow is the best!!! What a precious friend you have, Marina!
Yes, he does look …cool and I’m very happy he made it too, as too many trees didn’t. It’s so sad to see.
Hera, on the other hand, made the most of it.
Oh, precious, and then some!!
I like that you are throwing cake and cookies into the mix! xoxoxoxoxo The poundemic!
Poundemic!!!!! IKR… 3kilos more! 😱😱😱
Anyway, we gotta have some sweetness in our lives right?!!!!!!
Love it, and don’t dogs love snow 💜
Oh yes, they do! It’s really nice, while it’s soft and fluffy! 😉 xoxoxo
Yes until it melts and turns to gruggy slush 💜
…crunchy too!!! 😉
Wow! Lots of the wonderful white fluffy stuff! Even Gandalf looks a bit weather-beaten 🙂
He was, poor thing, but he’s back to his old self today. He withstood the beating, unlike many trees though that didn’t make it…
He’s a tough character 🙂
What a snowfall, Marina! You captured it beautifully with the star being Hera!!!
Always! She stars in all our moves! 😉
Thank you, my dearest Rebecca! xoxo
Hera looks to be having a blast! Snow is pretty, you have to admit 🙂
Oh, yes, she really enjoyed it. Two days of soft fluffy snow. I’m afraid tomorrow isn’t going to be that pleasant. Tonight it was already too crunchy and very slippery!!!!
So fun. Yeah, that is the downside. It was so cold today for us, too. After walking in the freezing rain yesterday, today was bitter.
Yes, here too! Bitter … brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Today is a slightly, little bit, itty-bitty bit better 😉
Here too… sun was out, which helps! 😉
Great fun frolicking in the white stuff 🐾
Hera likes the white stuff!!!!! 🐾❄️🐾❄️🐾
Oh me … surely that amount is usual, but Hera seems to be enjoying it! Stay warm and stay safe. Yamas!
….and it’s still snowing!!!!! Seems unlikely we’ll be able to go anywhere tomorrow too!
You too, my friend!
Welcome to Canada! I’m tempted to take some snow shots when I’m out in the car, esp at night. But they won’t let us do that while the vehicle is operating, which makes it impossible. Unless I park and shutdown but I find once I get going I don’t like to stop. I saw on news just now that you are advised to not go outside! Must be strange for you guys… 😇
Yes, we were also advised not to go out, but kids and dogwalkers were out all day! 😉
Not very strange though. We get snow every year, just not that much. It’s been 3-4 years since the last big snowfall that covered the city.
Indeed, driving and taking pics is not a wise idea. I did it in the rain as I loved the melting reflections of the lights on the windshield.
Snow though is more dangerous!❄️⛄️❄️
Yes. although I was on res backstreets in the middle of the night… with no traffic. Still, rules is rules so I am a good boy. If I stopped I’d probably get stuck in a snowbank!
Glad you have snow every year. It’s just one of those beautiful things in life. 🙂
Well, some rules are good to follow! 😉
I like snow, eventhough I can’t help thinking about anyone [including trees & plants] who is out there in the cold.
Don’t forget most trees and plants are made for it… perennials, that is. But I understand. I had a plant behind a curtain against the window and felt guilty so opened the curtain. A little colder in the house but much nicer for the plant! 🙂
I’ve lost many plants to frost throughout the years. I hope they’ll survive this one! 😉
Also we had many trees snap from the weight of the snow. They’re not used to so much snow.
Right… I guess you are somewhat in the middle , meteorologically speaking. I find it so interesting how different plants appear in different climates. I put some out a bit too early last spring and they were severely blighted. This guy in the window was one of them. But he came back last summer! So I need to be good to him now. He deserves it. 🙂
Oh, he definitely deserves it! 😉
Yes I felt so stupid for leaving him out. I’d seen the weather forcast but remembered almost too late. It just spent a few hours near or at ZERO and that was enough to yellow his leaves, almost finish him off. 🌿
At least he’s now safe!
I had to rush quite a few plants in our livingroom, but as the balconies are full of plants, we’d have to move out to get all of them inside [and still they wouldn’t fit!] So I had the cruel task of choosing the most sensitive and …small ones.
I know it’s a horrible decision to say “you’re not doing so well, you’re staying out this fall…” I have a real scraggly plant inside which doesn’t add much to the decor but it’s life…
Oh, it’s life alright! 😉
The snow is pretty. I’m sure Hera had a great time! I know our dogs love snow. I’m not sure where you are in Greece, but I think of it as a hot and dry country, though I also know it is mountainous. Do you get snow very often?
Within a few minutes of writing this, I was on AP web site and read an article with the title “In Athens, rare snow blankets Acropolis, halts vaccinations”. Maybe it answered my question 😉
😉 …and it’s still snowing!!!
I live in Athens [northern parts] and we get snow every year but it’s only every few years we get such an amount of snow [about 40-50cm], which is quite a lot in a city. We get all seasons …still. However our cold is supposed to be colder than other parts because it’s very dry. -2C at the moment. Hera loves it! 😉
I saw Hera running with pure joy!!
She had a lot of fun running on soft snow!
The snow and cold and ice and blustery days seem to be inspiring and uniting us like never before! Beautiful photos, Marina…we are all romping together! 🙂
A ha… yes we are! …and I just saw your Haiku #13, so I’m romping over! 😉
That’s a lot of snow. I see you puppy dog is really enjoying it. We got another 1 to 3 inches and it’s snowing lightly. Stay warm.
We’re currently about 16 inches. Hera has to walk like a kangaroo! We are literally snowbound… a more logical reason to stay indoors! 😉
There is snow everywhere! Exciting!!
Yes. There is snow covering almost everything in the northern hemisphere above 45º: https://www.eldoradoweather.com/snow-ice-cover.html
This is a brilliant website, Tim. Feels good to be part of the “winter team.”
It’s interesting to see snow and ice coverage from that perspective.
It really is!!!
So, they lied! It wasn’t Medea!!!! 😉 [Joking!]
Yes, northern hemisphere was white! Winter!
Oh, yes!!!!! Many hugs! xoxo
Have a great day!
And stay safe! With this weather, for sure, it’s better to stay at home. 😀 😀
