313/365 Now THAT'S what I call snow

I'm finally satisfied. On Tuesday night, we had a real snow storm, leaving us with a total of about a foot of snow.

Now that we've had a true snow storm, spring can hurry up and get here. (I doubt it will, but a girl can hope.)

Schools all around central Indiana closed for the day on Wednesday. Even with my fantastic four-wheel drive, I couldn't get out of the driveway until a neighboring farmer graciously plowed it. So that meant a snow day from work!

It also meant several mandatory trips outside with my camera, and four photos to share with you.

We were all curious to see how the horses would react to their first steps out of the barn. Destiny was the first to take a big roll in the snow, and Shep soon followed her lead.

Buster doesn't mind the snow, though when it gets deeper than a couple of inches, he can't move very easily in it. Yesterday's snow downright swallowed him. So Dad brought the snowblower into the backyard and cleared paths from the deck to each of Buster's favorite trees. Then we had a happy dog!

The sun came out in the afternoon, creating a perfect end to a beautiful day.

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/250s and 1/125s, f/5.6 at ISO 100, at about 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
