Ah Gee, Mother!

    1. Frank, the weekend is not over yet. They are calling for more snow through Sunday. Three feet is not enough for you? Yikes a’rooney! In under 24 hours? They’ve declared a state emergency here, for what I’m not sure to be truthful, for we are used to snow. It’s sunny right now …. however, a huge bank of dark clouds are coming this way from the north. At least I think they are. I give up trying to figure the weather out. LOL

    2. PS Snow, sleet or hail do not stop me from taking care of those I love. They are as precious to me as my own family. And I believe we received Divine intervention on this storm, as it has slowed down. However, we still have tomorrow to get through. I give up trying to figure out weather anymore.

    1. Sheila I live in NY. I should have put that in the post but I did remember to tag my post with NY. Duh. Good to know you got a laugh from the expression on my face …. I laughed too when I saw it. I mean really this is ONLY November and this is just too early for this nonsense.

      That feral cat, Mr. Blackie, I am able to approach and touch …. took me two years to do so and when finally he trusted me I felt like I won the lottery! Karma … she is a very very special friend and has taught me so much on animal communication and love.

      Today the sun popped out for a bit yet the sky is clouding over again. Weekend is not over …. crossing fingers this is it. Some more snow fell last night, about 6 inches, and hubby right now snow plowing again. We have a big property and not only does he do the driveway but he makes paths for me to the bird feeders and the barn next door. What a guy!!! Much love to you!! xoxo

      1. I hear you that its too early in the season for snow, it’s only Fall… not even Winter yet! Your hubby is a real dear to do all of this too! Aww about Blackie being a feral kitty. Sweet you finally got him to come around for you. Love that.

        My daughter and granddaughters live in NH so I totally understand about the weather up there. Hugs!

    1. You are welcome, Dan. No worries about the weekend. News channels are right out lying on amounts of snow that fell. No more than 4 feet in some areas and Buffalo itself has no more than 1.8 feet. It’s not a historical storm. It has not been a blizzard either. What was historic was the 7 feet of snow that fell here in under 24 hours years back, which I know you remember from me posting on it. I’m so over the sensationalizing and lies. If you want the truth go to the source. I am in this matter, the truth. Have a great weekend!!

    1. OH yes, Nadine, we did get dumped on. There hasn’t been hardly any wind so that is a definite blessing. No wind, no drifts. Thank you on the pictures …. I actually had fun taking them, believe it or not. Hope your weekend is a good one for you! xo

  2. Wow! Global warming and all that. Oh! I forgot. Climate CHANGE! That is a lot of snow, and you made the best of in with your wonderful photos. The second to the last photo of the snowdrift with the barn in the background is really Fantastic. Exceptional photos all around. With all do respect, you have a really cute Grinch-like look about all the white stuff.

    1. Hi, Tim!! I’ve stopped putting labels on what man deems whatever whatever. Gaia naturally goes through cycles of change. It is what it is. As for the snow …. heck yes that is a lot of snow! And that second to last photo ….. that is our backyard and my destination was over to that barn where the bird feeders are. That snow came up to the middle of my thighs in places. I stopped before I attempted to get over there thinking …. “man, not sure if I can do this!” But I did! The picture of my face is at the bird feeders AFTER I trekked through all that snow. As for Grinch ….. perhaps just perhaps there is some truth to fairly tales? Your comment however made me laugh. Thank you!! Hope you are having a totally great weekend along with your gang of felines. xo

      1. I tell people “when climate stops changing, the earth is dead!” You are an intrepid bird feeder to tackle thigh-high snow. The birds appreciate it. We have had cold, dry temps. Mostly in the high teens and low twenties in the mornings and around 40 by mid-afternoons. We had 11ºF one morning this week.

      2. I LOVE your first sentence, Tim, for yes dear heavens it is true! And my MO is that no one on my watch gets hurt or goes hungry. I have had talks with Mr. Blackie, the feral barn cat about the birds as they were off limits, but did he listen? Um, no. Finding feathers on the ground at times confirmed that Mr. Blackie yes has selective hearing and that nature will do what nature does. Mind over matter when it came to getting through that snow. And when I finally got home …. I slept for an hour. LOL

    1. Brad, I’d like to see what your face would look like after trekking through an expanse of 100 feet of unbroken snow which was 3 feet deep. Not light snow mind you. Heavy wet snow. My expression states …. NOT liking this but dang I just walked through “miles” of deep snow just to feed the birds. You are welcome for the share. As of today the sun came out a bit and already things are melting, thank God! This is too early agreed, and I KNOW it will not last. Hope you have a really great weekend!! xo

      1. I agree …. seasons are changing. I “think” this cold snap is going to be short-lived for I hear warmer temperatures are coming by midweek here. I’ve noticed so many oddities regarding the seasons and Mother Herself. I used to be able to rely on Mother to guide me but lately, that is not the case. Heated jackets? Hmmmmm ….. now that sounds interesting especially me being a nature photographer. I freeze at times getting pictures during the winter months. Big love and hugs right back at you!!! What a lovely conversation we’ve had. Thank you! xo

  3. Oh yay Amy, barn friends in the cold, what a mix. And no, not yay for freezing dear lady, just a view of Karma, it’s great to see him and he’s looking good too, his coat looks great. And move while trying to take a photo, the hide of him 🤣. And I would say spiderwebs on Mr Blackie’s nose are suspicious, I wonder what he’s been chasing. I suppose we have to allow the reduction of a mouse or two…but the birds? Might sneak a budgerigar bell on him so the birds can hear him coming 🤣. Great balls of fire Amy, a snow dump that deep in one go. It’s a wonder you don’t get snowed in some days. Great share dear lady, thank you. It was good to see Karma again…and you too…if a little chilled 🤣❤️🙏🏽

    1. So glad you had fun with this post, Mark. Karma is a she, fyi. SMILE Her winter coat is coming in nice and thick as is Mr. Blackie’s. I never know what to expect from that cat. Take yesterday. I found him way up high on a really big pile of stuff and the way he acted he couldn’t get down. Really? So I reached as far as I could to make sure those items that I thought he would jump on were as stable as possible. I left the food dish hoping he would get down, and sure enough when I returned later, that dish was empty and he was asking for more food. Mark, I have many bosses in my life. 😂

      As for a collar on a feral cat …. that is in all seriousness dangerous. Nope. I will again attempt to talk to him about those birds but in all honesty Mr. Blackie will do what he wants.

      Yes the snow is deep yet the darn news is exaggerating on the numbers. No surprise there. Sensationalizing at its best. Again they pounded fear in people’s heads. This is Buffalo for heaven’s sake. We get the white stuff. Yes I will admit the amount in a brief time span that fell, a bit much but we are fine.

      Sending you much love from a very warm home ….. and as I say this I’m about to bundle up, today with a face mask on, to feed the birds and go over to the barn. It is brutally cold today with winds kicking up. Thank God warmer temps are right around the corner and all this white stuff will be poof GONE!! xo

      1. Ah, Spirit nudged me on the sex of Karma, and me knowing best went ahead with a ‘him’ 😂. I still don’t listen 🤣. And I most certainly understand the wildness of Mr Blackie. But since your a cat whisperer I thought maybe you had him feeding out of your hand…so to speak 😀. As for the news reports on your snow, we had them over here. 20 feet deep, killed a thousand, froze all the cities water supplies…you know, all those bloated facts they roll out because they have nothing to report otherwise. But they did say it was a lot, and had a great video of a man attempting to jump through the snow with his dog following him and disappearing at almost each step the poor thing 😀❤️🙏🏽

      2. I see a sense of humor shining through here. How cool, Mark! Every time I don’t listen I end up with egg on my face. LOL I’d like to think I’ve got this, but, something happens and humility returns showing me no I don’t got this. Teehee ….. And yes yes on the news. It’s ridiculous. I don’t watch it. Hubby does sometimes. Thank goodness tomorrow is tomorrow cuz we’ve had travel bans and all things but grocery stores and hospitals have been closed. I go with bells on to my gym tomorrow! Being cooped up like this I don’t know who has it worse …. me or my Rusty.

        And as for Blackie …. yes I do have him eating practically out of my hand. But right now he feels trapped, cornered in all seriousness. All is little exits are blocked and a cat, especially a wild one, MUST have at least one exit. I get it. Right now he is not coming to me at all. His instincts are on high alert right now. The barn has yet to be dug out fully and then there is the temperature …. just too darn cold for him to be out. Thank God we have warm temps coming in a few days. He will get his freedom back.

      3. Lucky Mr Blackie has you the poor soul, he’d starve being blocked in with that weather. Well, you have it all under control then Amy, I’ll just go back to ‘listening’ a bit more and fine tune my spiritual antenna. I just have to get that egotistical human to stop listening to the chatter on another earth channel…and not the news 🤣❤️🙏🏽

  4. That is a great deal of snow for such an early date. Traditionally, years ago in the old Soviet Union, the first snow was expected to fall as the crowds on Red Square watched the parade to commemorate the Russian Revolution on November 7th, but you expect snow that early in Russia.
    Not where you live though in the USA. It wasn’t so long since you had all those wonderfully colourful pictures of the autumn. And now, most of your pictures are just one colour….white!!

    1. John, agreed on the snow and the good news is warmer temps are right around the corner. Thank heavens! This is far too early and to be subjected to a very very long winter, just saying that I shudder. No thanks!

      Yes you can see snow in Russia now for I watch a YouTube program from Russia and yes there is snow on the ground. Not much though. However I’ve watched this same program in the winter and oh boy yes they do get snow!

      Those wonderful colors will be seen again, I have confidence. They are just covered int he white stuff for a brief time. No worries. When winter really is here, I will be going out and about to get some fantastic landscapes. For now? What you saw here is going to be it. I say so!! Winter solstice is December 21st! Enough of this! Have a great weekend!!

  5. Crazy, crazy, crazy weather … but gorgeous photos of a winter wonderland. It’s crazy here too, it’s nearly summer and we’re having hailstones and torrential rain, followed by clouds that POOF and then it’s gone and blue skies. Nuts!
    Love all those animals and I’m sure they love and appreciate you too, trekking through all that snow to feed them. Take care, keep warm and keep smiling my friend. xxx

    1. I agree, Miriam. Crazy crazy weather! Sorry to hear about what your weather is like …. topsy turvy and inside out upside down and then some with these weather fronts. I’d like to see POOF here so that this snow is gone. I hear warmer temps are on the way and with that sun being as hot as it’s been, this snow in no time will fade. Thank goodeness!

      Yes I do love those animals … Mr. Blackie right now, being a feral cat is very skittish on account all of his exits are blocked with snow. If you know anything about felines, especially those who are wild, they do not like their exits closed. As a result he will not let me near him …. but I get it. It’s his instincts coming into play. When the weather improves and his little hidey holes to the outdoors are once again accessible, he’ll love on me. I am keeping warm. I did want to go for a walk but temps are too cold for me to breathe comfortably in. I am headed to gym with bells on tomorrow ….. all has been closed here with travel bans the entire weekend. Sending you much love!!! xoxo

    1. Thank you, Kamal. And another thank you about me. I make sure I take care of myself in all ways possible. I’m happy to report the snow is melting and Mr. Blackie from the barn has stopped eating enormous amounts, an indication that warmer weather is here. Thank goodness for it is just too early for this white still. So happy you enjoyed this post. Sending you much love!! xo

  6. Oh, Amy, coverage of your upstate NY lake effect world was all over our news, reminding us that our beautiful fall weather was about to disappear. Tho not having your degree of north nor a big lake effect to chill us with such vengeance, it will never look like yours. (I know, never say never!) Anyway, your recount of it, including your care of Mister Blackie particularly, brought a measure of humor and warmth to a world that refuses to be labeled as cold. Hope your Thanksgiving Day was good!!!

    1. Yes, Mary, coverage was all over the world regarding our snow fall yet it was not historic and I don’t appreciate the sensationalism. Yes we did get a huge amount of snow but a few years back, we got 7 feet of snow under 24 hours. THAT was a historic storm. I pray this is the last of the white stuff for a long time for it is far far too early for this nonsense. It is raining today and much of that snow is already gone! I’ve been overjoyed to see green grass again! If I didn’t retain a sense of humor in general my chin would be on my shoes. Uh uh. Not me!! Sending you so much love today! xo

      1. You’re so right that it was by no means historic…but even so, it takes positivity and humor such as yours to turn it into a such a relatable post! Regardless, I’m glad to know that much of it (the snow) is already gone! xoxo

    1. Hi, Julie, again!!! That snow is almost gone and this very day in fact, it is raining. I LOVE those animals. That’s it in a nutshell. Mr. Blackie in fact, just yesterday has allowed me in all the way into his world, and is now following me home. He slept in one of my front gardens just to be close to me. You knowing animals, you know what it takes to get a feral cat to fully trust you. It took me 2 years. Now? That cat is one of the most gentle, loving, trusting cats I have ever known. He is blowing me away by how he is acting. He even allows me to pick him up, cuddle him and kiss and head bump him. I have “gifts” from him as well which tell me how much he loves me. I graduated with this guy!!! xo
