A blizzard hit us in southeastern Massachusetts last night through today. It was my birthday yesterday so some of my birthday plans got curtailed. Andy was going to take me to the Newport mansions to see the decorations and holiday carolers, but the snow prevented us from going. We had dinner at a nice restaurant nearby and then watched my new favorite movie "Julie and Julia."
Last night the snow was really coming down and the wind was whipping around like crazy. Ellie poked her nose out for a sniff.
She didn't want to go outside, but Mother Nature was calling so she donned her bright orange coat and we shoveled a little path for her.
The snow at night was beautiful to see.
You can really see the blizzard conditions in this photo. This was just the start of the storm so the snow wasn't that high yet.
The next morning we awoke to this....
The view outside my kitchen window.
The first thing I did when got up and outside was to fill the bird feeders (notice I wasn't even dressed yet... I still have on my black velour pajama bottoms).
The birds enjoying the feast.
Morning doves huddled in a tree.

When the storm was finally over we ended up with almost 2 feet of snow. Now the fun begins.... digging out! We'll definitely have a white Christmas.
