completely covered over
by the blizzard

    Everything's relative, Chris. An astute and amusing observation.

    whistling kettleŚ
    the fallen snow rises
    to meet snow falling

    Nothing like a good blizzard is there? Brrrrrr!

    floating snowflakes -
    the triple caw of a crow
    within the tree

    Hi Chris,
    a chilling winter view...
    it's almost funny, except it's too real!
    What a great way to look at it.

    patches of moon
    through the umbrella tree leaves...
