We finally got a semi-decent snowstorm!  Not two or three feet like the storms before 2006, but better than the light dustings we've been getting for the past several years.  
A little ways up the mountain in Big Bear they got about a foot and a half, which made the local business owners and ski resorts really happy, too.
Well...maybe not the birds and animals.  It's always hard for them.  But I keep the feeders well stocked so, at least here at my little cottage, they don't go hungry. (That's a Northern Flicker in the photo above and a Steller's Jay in the photo below).
I apologize for the blurriness of some photos, it was still snowing pretty hard when I took those photos.

The snow started to melt a little this afternoon, but I think there will probably be plenty left for tomorrow and the weekend!


  1. Hi Victoria,
    What a great post.. The blue jay reminds me all the wonderful summers we spent in Crestine. Jays everywhere. I can still smell the pine trees.
    Enjoy the snow!

  2. So happy for you all on your magical mountain! I hope there are more lovely thick dustings to come before winter is over.
    Looking forward to more snowy beauty!

  3. Dear Victoria - so glad you got some snow. I know how much you need the moisture. Your stellar jay is beautiful. Our blue jays our similar but we have more white on ours. Hope you have a great week.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
