The Great Blizzard of 2011 (not that great)

February 1 and 2, 2011 we got some snow. Not soooo much snow, but with 40 mile an hour winds and low temperatures, it's called a blizzard. Visibility was 1/4 mile, and it snowed about 8-10 inches, but we had 3-4 foot drifts.

I started snapping pics of the little stone rabbit in the hosta garden through the day.






Here's what he's suppposed to be surrounded by:




The snow was not very deep here, it blew away along this area.

Drifts against the 6 foot fence.


It's fun for a few minutes!



How ironic!! This is one of my daylily markers! Here's what is SUPPOSED to  be there.


And this is NOT....

This is......


Here's the only little guy that looks the same year around.





I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday today.

I can't even find my markers, there is so much snow. I am worried about the damage to the shrubs, this is really too much!
It was nice to see a flower! Will we see them again? :)

Pat,
Love the photos! Yes, I did the same as you by posting what things "should" look like when they are not all snow covered! Thanks for stopping by! Oh- and your dogs are just too cute! Looks like they are having a great time!
