Molly's View From her window and Skywatch Friday........

Had our first real winter snow storm on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.  Looks like a winter wonderland until you had to go out and plow the driveway and brave the minus whatever temperatures!!!  Then it's a bloody freezing cold winter wonderland.  Roll on April!!!

These photos were taken around 4pm on Wednesday, and yes it was still freezing bloody cold!!!

How gorgeous! We had a lovely dump of snow, unfortunately on top of ice. sigh
And it is pretty.
We had no where to be and were not worried.
I took my time digging out. Hubby's back is out.
Today it was -20C. when we got up. The fire if going merrily!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Here in Texas most everybody -- not me -- thinks all that snow is wonderful. I just see it as cold and painful. Stay warm and safe!

Great Skywatch and Molly's Window post! It's very cold here, but I guess we were so desperate for snow here that we don't really care, we just bundle up! I know the ski hill operators are happy!

That's the perfect amount of snow! Not too much but just enough to make everything look like a winter wonderland. Love those wintery skies too...

It has been bloody cold - which is why I am still inside searching for summery pics from Australia!

You have an incredible view at your place.

You have some lovely views. It does look cold there and I would be happy if it did not snow all winter. But, we just had a light dusting today. Great photos, love the birdies too. Happy Skywatching and I wish you a very Happy New Year!

Hi Gill! I read a few days ago about the increase in the size of Molly's mammary tumors--I hope that she's okay...Paws crossed and good thoughts coming for both of you...I'm worried and staying tuned...

Nice sky shots, Gill. Snow does look lovely until you have to go out into it, I agree.
Hope you have a happy new year.

Molly certainly has a great view. I am glad that the lumps were benign. My granddaughter's dog is called Molly too.
