Snow Fun

On Friday evening it changed from snow to rain. I wished it had cleared for a while and I had caught a photo of the house in snow. This was the most we've ever had piled on the house. So on Saturday my husband went out to capture a few photos before too much of the snow was lost. I think it looks pretty neat, what do you think?:

This one looks almost like a postcard of our house (except I'd need to Photoshop in a blue sky instead of the greyish one):

Here is a shot of the back yard and shed in a blanket of snow:

In the afternoon, my husband shovelled a path across the back deck, and insisted that we all go play in the snow while he cleared the remainder of the deck:

So we all set to work building snow creations. My son & I built what I will call the Throne of David:

No, not that throne, the throne of my little David:

My daughter took her turn at sitting on the throne:

The kids also built a fort (which joined into the back of the snow throne), with help from my husband (who supplied them with snow by the shovelful):

Wasn't the snow crazy?? I am in Oregon and I just could NOT believe the snow we got. Your house looks really charming. I just found your blog on the Cold Climate Gardening blog list and had to tune in since I'm also in the PNW!
