The White Wizard

That's "GandAlf" if you don't mind...

Okay, maybe they spelled it wrong (erm, methinks they HAD to to avoid a lawsuit), but still "Gandolf" descended  upon us last night, bringing a blizzard of white in his wake.

With winds over 70 Km/hour and a good dumping of snow, it was a wild night.

I made sure we had everything we needed in case the power went out (prepare for the worst, hope for the best they say), battened down the hatches, set up some candles, cozied up on my favorite chair with a blanket and a warm fuzzy cat on my lap and watched "The Thing"*.

It didn't end up being as bad as they had predicted thank goodness, but it was enough to create a few good deep drifts.

Up to 4 foot drifts in places

Tawnee and a frosty window

Part of the Christmas swag still hanging at the front door

All I know is, since hubby's had a nasty cough since Christmas and now this storm, we've really had to put a hold on our plans...

for we STILL haven't ventured out to see The Hobbit on the big screen.

* If you're not a Sci-Fi fan or even a Big Bang Theory fan, you might not get that reference. It takes place in the South Pole and was the film Sheldon et al watched when they were at the North Pole... so's the perfect winter-storm movie.

I am a fan of BBT but I don't get this winter Gandalf thing at all. I saw a reference to it by a friend who lives in N. Dakota. Great photos; that frost one is amazing and I'm glad I biggified it.

They started naming winter storms now; I guess they are up to the "G"s....

Thanks for the compliment on the frost photo... I am loving my new DSLR camera!

I am a little envious of your winter wonderland. It looks like good cuddling weather.

What a beautiful photo the last one is. We got snow today, though only a dusting compared to you :)

Wasn't nearly as bad as predicted. i know this is aberrant but I WAS dissapointed. LOVE the pics!

Jay said...

Aha! So that's why they call it 'frosted glass'! Nice picture - very, very nice. Beautiful, in fact.

I'm a huge fan of the Big Bang Theory, but obviously we haven't got to that episode yet!
