Peb's said, "that's a big Pecker"....

Well finally... a nice calm day! The prediction is for only five or six more inches of snow. That should be fairly manageable, after everything that came down over the weekend.

Like I said yesterday though, it sure is pretty!

I don't really have my daughters eye when it comes to taking great pics, but I kinda' liked the way "The Cave" was framed by the tree branches in this one.

While I was having a chat with Zooks via I/M the other day, she asked me how much snow we actually had on the ground. I wasn't sure of the proper answer to that, as I hadn't really been keeping track. So I took these two shots for her. The railing on the deck is of your standard 48" high variety. Oh yeah! And the deck had been cleared of snow just 24 hours before this shot. (to let Peb's get to her Bird feeders)

I took this one just for fun. It's always good times when your 30" high x 36" wide snow blower, cuts under the snow instead of through it!

We could see "phase 2" of the storm was coming as we looked down the road. The wall of white was actually pretty damn impressive!

Impressive enough as a matter of fact, to convince me that inside would be the place to be for the next little while! I made it inside just in time to see the great white wall of weather, hit the barn out back.

It's really a shame that I have no talent with a camera! The shot I tried to take as the storm front was halfway through the back yard, would've really been spectacular! Instead, it turned out to be just a blurry mess. :(

Ah yes! The reference in the title of this here post!

My Peb's loves having her birds around. She has four feeders out in the back and feeds to attract an incredible variety throughout the year. But Winter is always her favorite time to attract her fine feathered friends, as she tends to see more of one of her favorite species..... The 'Pecker.

Yesterday she called me to the Kitchen window with just one sentence. "Honey! I've got a big 'Pecker hanging around my box!"

For the record, that 'Pecker is of the Pileated variety and once he grows up just a tick, he'll be bigger than any Crow or Raven. You should see the carnage these things can cause, with just a few love taps at a tree!

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....


Well, it is pretty....

I'll be back tomorrow with more details, but it looks like today will be spent digging out from the nearly 4 feet of snow dumped on the Cave here in Bedrock.

Hopefully I'll be done in time to play in the TuckFard I NLHE at 7:00pm on FullTilt and the TuckFard II Omaha/8 that starts at 8:05pm, also on Tilt. If you think you can make it out to join us, the P/W for both as always is donkey. These games are an awful lot of fun, particularly for the measly $3.50 entry fee.

Hope to see you there!

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
