Short Month..Big Snow

February has started out with more snow than all of January.  I don't care what the stupid groundhog said, it's Winter!  Here are some scenes from the Pines:
Come on down our country road..the plows have been here!
Pull into the driveway and don't let the archway of Pine trees intimate you...think we need a trim?
You'll know it's us by the rock formations...Any Starkey whisperings usually make it to the blog!
Once inside, it's pine heaven!
But we do have other sights...take some time to enjoy the gurgling of our little creek that runs from the woods all the way down our side yard.  Today we're having a mini snowstorm...about 4in. is expected and the schools are letting students out early because the roads are getting slick out in the country. Here's a little video I took this afternoon....hope you don't get seasick..I almost did!

how nice to see AND hear you! :-) And WOW! Look at all of the snow!! I hope it doesn't come down too much there...or here. Yep! We're getting some too over the next couple of days...It's definitely winter!!

Our day was similar. Schools were cancelled and light snow falling, making for slippery roads. Except no creepy woods :)

Julia said...

Your creepy woods are so beautiful in any season. It was so much fun listening to your voice in the video.

I should learn to make little videos too but I'm not very techy and I get rather intimidated by anything that I haven't tried.

It's snowing here too with high wind and blowing snow.

Take care and stay safe and warm.

I'm telling you - where you live is just beautiful country. Thanks for sharing all of that.

I stayed late tonight to get things done. Kyle came and got me at 6:30. Hope there is a chance at a snow day. :)

What a fun trip to Whispering Pines! Brrr. The last few days have been springlike here. I almost envy you because I love a good "snow day." it was nice hearing your voice as you took us down the lane in the woods. Thanks.

Those woods are beautiful. Your pine trees are very pretty, they remind me of Bob Ross's pine trees. It is nice to see you and hear you as well. You seems to be a pro with the video camera.

It is pretty right at your house no snow in the forcast for us yahoo but it has been cold.

You have a beautiful piece of land! And I'm sure it's even prettier in the spring ;).

I often don't watch videos on blogs but yours was super. How great to see and hear you. I really felt I was there, walking with you. Many thanks for taking us with you on your walk, Yaya.
All the best

Whispering Pines sounds ideal! I love snow. Thanks for visiting my Blog and commenting about the Rosary and the recipient of it.

Loved the little walk in the snow :) I see you have a creek gurgling through your property...just as Donna does :) Same creek? Sweet!

Hilary said...

Lovely property you have there. It looks very much like the walk I took in the snow squall yesterday. Except I was too chicken to bring my camera. Thanks for the snowy stroll.

What beautiful winter pics. Just a wonderland of white in the pines.
You sure live in a gorgeous spot on earth. Stay warm and safe.
Have a great evening.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Man! It sure did come down this past weekend! We were reminded again of why we live in SC, BUT it is beautiful...especially at your house. Nice to see you again for a few minutes on Sunday, my half Greek sister! :)

This is SNOW good!!
Great to see you (you're so pretty) and to hear you!
Take care, that is a lot of snow!

Rick Watson said...

I'm kind of like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. I think we should catch that little furry rat, cook it and eat it :)
Just kidding PETA.
It does look pretty though.

Big snow indeed. And I love the sounds as you walk through the creepy woods in the snow.

I can almost hear the freshness of the air.
