A red-tailed hawk sheltered in our tree yesterday during the worst of the snow/wind

Lucy loves the snow!

The wind was howling as the snow built up last night

Out my kitchen window this morning

Well, all the dire predictions actually had merit this time. I haven't seen an official tally of the snowfall in the Chicago area, but my guess is about 2 feet. We have several places in the yard where there are four- and five-foot drifts. Our dog, who is scared of many things, is fearless in the snow. She loves it. She rolls around, bounds through it like a rabbit, carves out a trail for herself with no problem. The teenage son will be heading out soon to try to uncover the driveway. The snow is heavy and wet--good snowman snow!--so he definitely has his work cut out for him.
