More snow!!

This was the scene from our back deck last night. I wasn't sure if the camera would capture the beauty of the snow flakes, but I think it did just fine. The snow flakes are huge! There was no wind so the snow was falling oh so peacefully.

More peace! This breathtaking view was from our back deck this morning. The blue tint makes for an interesting photo (my favorite, so far). Watch out family and friends - this picture may end up on next year's Christmas card! A trick I learned from Petunia's Gardener.

Snow is still falling, but only because a slight breeze is simply "brushing" the snow off the branches. It's beautiful, but I'm thanking Him I work from home. As I was trying to capture just the right photo, I found these tracks in our driveway. Hmmm...split hoof. Interestingly enough, I only saw the tracks where hubby had driven.

Wonderful - 'he' doesn't have cloven feet then? LOL

They could very well be cloven feet. I'm not that familiar with the animals in the NW. Hubby and I moved from Kansas which has an abundant supply of deer. However, I knew these weren't deer tracks. Thanks for mentioning cloven feet. That's something to research.

Wish we could have a little snow here. Nice pictures!

You really did capture the flakes too! I clicked on the photo to see the larger image. So you had a visitor already. I would have guessed deer but not sure. It could be elk, but I think they are similar to deer only a little larger. I've only seen rabbit, cat and coyote over here.

OK, neighbor, the fishing is just getting started. I've been tagged to share 5 things others might not know and now I'm hoping to tag you. Are you willing?

Came here from Petunia's Gardener to visit the fish ornaments! And stayed to read your blog. Great photos. I'm from Spokane, but am wintering in Arizona -- and not missing that snow! LOL
