30-Minute Blizzard



Okay, maybe our snowfall Saturday morning (2/16/13) wasn't actually a blizzard, but it was certainly more than the forecast flurries.  Daybreak was partly cloudy.  Then, more clouds moved in followed by this fairly heavy snowfall which only lasted for about thirty minutes.



The Goldfinches took advantage of  our bird feeder under the porch while the snow fell.

The snow stopped as abruptly as it started.  A little while later, the sky was clearing again.





By noon, sunshine was chasing the fallen snow into the deep shadows.

How smart of the birds to find shelter and food to wait out the snow. Hope you're keeping warm!

A quick storm like that means spring is not far away, don't you think? At least we can hope. Enjoyed your post.
