Aaaaaand we’re snowed in again.

Well, sort of.

We could probably leave the house if we had a good reason to, but we don’t… so we’re happily staying indoors keeping warm with our kitty companions.

We haven’t lost power. My parents have, so I hope that their generator keeps them warm today! I’m jealous of their fireplace, that’s for sure.

On a whim, I drove to Fearrington yesterday to play with the zoom lens a bit more. Whew, I bet the village is just stunning today, covered in a thick blanket of fresh snow. My photos show only remnants of Tuesday morning’s snow.

It was a cold, but sunny day at Fearrington. Residents were bustling around in their coats and scarves, stopping at the village post station to pick up letters and parcels, and hurrying to The Goat (the village deli and coffee shop) for hot beverages and a warm lunch.

I wish I could have captured a better photo of what I think is a Red-Shouldered Hawk — but he kept flying from tree to tree, trying hard to avoid the camera!

I love the second goat photo. In the background, you can see another goat strrreeetttccchhhing after a long nap!

The little Song Sparrow, on the other hand, was happily showing off and singing beautiful tunes for me to enjoy whilst snapping away.

I do hope that you haven’t lost electricity — and if you do, please bundle up! What a perfect evening for a bottle of good red wine and a game of Scrabble.
