FIRST SNOW OF 2017 IN HIGHLANDS, NC – 1/6 & 1/7

The snow started about 2pm on Friday, just a snow shower at first only for about a half hour.

The squirrel made sure to chow down before more snow came.

It started again about sundown. I tried to catch the falling snow, which didn’t work well.

Morning revealed the new scene and hungry birds. I put out extra seed and they (crows, doves, blue jays, buntings, sparrows, cardinals, chickadees, and finches) have been busy since.

I shoveled a path to the garage.

I’m not going to try to shovel the driveway.

The street was not plowed and probably will be one of the last to get done.

It looks like a lot of snow, but not enough to stop the Subaru (4 wheel drive). I got to the grocery store and back. To no surprise, there was no NYTimes. The delivery guy doesn’t like snow. Now, about Noon, the sky is clear and tonight they predict 6 degrees F (-15C), and no thawing until Tuesday. Winter has arrived.

  1. Ooh, I love your photos! They really capture the magic of snow! I should have tried for some last night. We have a similar scene at our birdfeeder. But no crows. We also have a Subaru (actually, two of them!) Glad you are leaving your driveway alone. We should have rain on Wednesday. :-).
