Beauty and the Blizzard

 Thought I would share some of the images of the morning after the blizzard.  My guess is we have around 16" to 18" and this is the view of my street after the snow plow did his wonderful job of clearing away the snow.  Truly, we have the best crew around, they were out in full force snow plowing the streets.  Great job village of Ardsley.
 Can you see my dog.  We shoveled a luge for him or a path down our drive to the cars early this morning.  He loves the snow.

Here is our village early this morning.  Nothing like a snow storm to bring everything to a halt.  Luckily our trusty Riviera Bakery was open for some fresh croissants.  After all that shoveling, I think I earned a treat.

Looks so beautiful!! I grew up outside of Syracuse and the older I get the more nostalgic I am for snow.
Our son is up in Boston having a great time w/their snowfall, making up for being short-changed all those years growing up in VA.

This is the kind of snow we southerners dream of having here. Beautiful today and thank goodness on a weekend!

Your town is beautiful Patricia and I love the luge. We've received three feet of snow so far and its still coming down pretty hard. At least it's supposed to warm up this week so not a problem and our wells will be happy.

Enjoy the snow!

WOW! Similar scenery here in Ontario, too! I guess spring isn't arriving any time soon!:)

I wish we had some snow here. Glad to see you have power.

It's much easier to enjoy the beauty of the snow when it's there and not here! We had a 50 degree day here in Omaha, and I much prefer high temps to low.
Thanks for sharing!
You're certainly a good sport- a positive soul..

Looks so pretty! I'm going to have to check out your village sometime. A fresh croissant at the bakery is reason enough! Love that photo at dusk...periwinkle.

I feel your pain, we were in the same boat up here- the snow crippled us for 3 days. I am so happy to be dug out now :)

I can't wait wading through that snowfield while looking through
Interior Glass Doors window. Surely its a fun for all New Yorkers to enjoy the view and the ski.

Oh my gosh, i know its a pain but it is so pretty. We havent even had a winter in dallas. I am missing the winter snow we saw while on holiday up north. And yes friend, you earned yourself a treat! Xo
