My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 18

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive.


My World was hit by a snow storm with the snow reaching 18" to 36" in drifts.

The Sun has been out since but we are cold as shown by the ice on the treetops.
The world is really wintry right now.

The deer are mighty hungry and have dug down to the buried corn feed. You wonder how I know it's deer, look below.

Here are a couple in the yard right after the storm the next day.
Go and visit a lot of great worlds above.

These are exciting pictures of the real thing (especially for one like me who has no snow).
Deer in your own back yard!

Love that big fish picture too.

Wonderful winter shots. The blue sky and white snow is beautiful combination.

KaHolly said...

Yes, indeedy, the snow is beautiful. And that's the only nice thing about snow that I can think of to say! What fun to have deer in your own backyard. Stay safe and warm, ~karen

You have WAY more snow than we have right now! But it looks so pure and beautiful. Too bad it has to be shoveled, eh?

Darla said...

O my stars! I hope you are warm...they are saying we are going to receive some raw weather this week..

There is a certain beauty about the snow covered landscape,but those poor critters who are trying to find food.

Great photos...my world too is being hit by a snow storm as I write this.

Can't wait until spring!

A beautiful white world. I know, easy for me to say from in the Sacramento Valley of California.

A virtual winter wonderland!

Gaelyn said...

Wow Tom, you got really buried. I don't miss these kinds of midwest winters. Nice shots of the deer, sure glad there was corn for them to find.

Jenn Jilks said...

I think the deer are better off than the people!
The snow will allow them to reach the buds higher on the trees. Our deer do fine in winter.
Good luck with the snow. We're expecting more!

Great shots Tom, we had a little snow flurry today but not settled.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gee---that's alot of snow... Wow!!! Makes me wonder how the critters make it when this happens... I feel sorry for the birds and the deer--especially the deer since they have to STAY in the snow--and cannot do like the birds and get up in the trees...

Beautiful pictures though.

Your world is just beautiful!

Randi said...

Perfect winter shots - with white snow and blue sky!

Jo said...

What beautiful snow and sky shots. In South Africa we have courses on how to photograph snow (because it's difficult for us to get good snow pictures) and here you are doing a wonderful job just like that! I love the deer in your back yard.

Now that's the kind of snow I'm talking about! Beautiful!
So much prettier than the icey stuff we get down here.

Brit Gal Sarah said...

That's alot of snow Tom! Lovely pics, especially of the Deer.

Pam said...

What a wintry white-out but it sure does look beautiful from where I sit. I bet you are sick and tired of shoveling snow.

Willard said...

Beautiful photos, Tom. The light was superb on Saturday afternoon after the storm and on Sunday and Monday, but now it is snowing again.

Warren Baker said...

Thats proper snow FG. if we had that in England the place would grind to a halt ( it nearly does after just 2 inches of the white stuff!)

Anna said...

Beautiful images, I thought that on the first one there was cracked earth, lol. Anna :)
