Snow on snow, snow on snow. Layer upon layer.

A few pics from the bedroom window to remind me what it looked like and felt like a few days ago. Thermal undies for us and relays of food for the birds, which included some rare visitors incl. jays, fielfares and redwings. My summer blackbird atop the highest branch of the dead tree, dead centre of the photo on the right, with another feeding on crumbs and seeds on the wall in the foreground. (Note the fancied-up effect framing the picture, and the halo effect on the other! thanks to 'transform your image with photoshop.') Our two cars nicely buried under drifts of snow meant we couldn't get them out and down the track to the main road for days. But at least we could enjoy the view.
