Our Winter in Photos, Part 1

This has been probably the coldest and snowiest winter of my life.  I can remember a few isolated storms that may have topped what we got this year, but never such a sustained barrage of frigid, windy, snowy days.

This first batch of photos is from our yard.  We kept our feeders well stocked, when we could get to them, but when we couldn't we tossed seed around the snowbanks, to make sure our feathered friends were taken care of.  Yesterday is the first time since the middle of January that we had enough melt off to actually see some grass under the white stuff!

Going down to the river whenever the roads were clear helped with the cabin fever immensely.  We live in an incredibly beautiful place, and the snow just brings out the good bone structure of our Hudson Valley landscape...
