After spending a while trying (unsuccessfully) to get out of the driveway (and getting another vehicle stuck in the process trying to get my car out), I bagged it and worked from home. It was a good thing, they didn't plow our road until after 1:00, and it was impassable without four wheel drive before then anyway.
Even thought there was sticky snow on all the trees and it was pretty outside, I didn't grab my camera until this evening. I made a few photos of snowy pines with blue skies peeking through high clouds, but then as we were wrapping up dinner I noticed the blowing and drifting on the lake. We have a nice big patio door looking out at the lake to the west and the drifts were catching the last low rays of the golden sunlight, and highlighting a nice texture too.
I grabbed the camera and walked down towards the lake and got this:

As much as I love winter I have to say I'm looking forward to seeing waves out the window instead of snowdrifts.
