Ken and Tracy's Icy Windows
The southern pines are weighted down with this heavy, heavy snow.

View from inside house from upstairs sitting room window.
Snow and ice accumulating on all our window ledges.

Visibility to just across the street is not good.
A blizzard = visibility less than 1/4 mile for an extended period of time.
This is a blizzard!
The snow is beautiful!
I don't mind it as long as we keep our power to keep the home warm
we have plenty of food to eat and things to drink and we can stay snug at home.
(I guess I believe in Maslow's Law and Hierarchy of Needs.)
