We don't often get snow here............so nature has given us our share.

Your yard is so pretty! Be safe out there. We just moved back to New England (Rhode Island) from 27 years in Florida. We had our first snowfall of the year yesterday. Pretty but cold!

From this Wisconsinite, that is truly beautiful. I love snow!! The only problem is that too many people don't remember they have to drive slower. My father always said drive half as fast and leave twice as early as you need to. Works for me. Your windows are works of beauty. Be safe out there.

It is forecast -12 degrees tonight.

No TV, must be the weather as everything else is okay. Wanted to watch the semi final results of Come Dancing tonight but no signal :o(

Enjoy it ..with such a lovely home and surroundings it looks like something out of a Dickens Carol. The trees should rebound or take a broom to them and gently sweep away the heavy snow..you may have some breakage. Driving in it can be a pain, but take it slow and easy..shovel a little bit at a time and before you know it ...a walk is cleared..Sit back have a cup of tea (or your favorite beverage) play some music that appeals to you and enjoy what you see as it will be gone sooner than you think and will be but a memory.. Some markets up this way New England offer delivery for a small fee..do you have such a market close to your brothers..

Your pictures are beautiful. Stay home and enjoy the view. In the Washington, DC area, one TV station forecasts a snow storm as a one, two or three bread loaf snow. People here are from all over the country and have had different experiences with snow and ice. A lot of people will go to the grocery stores and buy all the bread, milk and toilet paper available when a one inch snow is predicted. Others may decide to wear a coat instead of a sweater for the same snowfall. Driving is hell because of those without snow tires versus those with snow spiked tires (illegal in DC) expect everyone else to drive as they do. The street cleaning crews do well with any snow fall less than four to six inches on the main roads. Fortunately few snow falls last more than three days here. I hope you and your brother are safe and comfortable.

Nice. And as far as I am concerned you can have MY share, too! LOL

On a practical note, perhaps you could get a supermarket delivery service to take emergency supplies to your brother. I don't live far away, but I wouldn't venture out in the car at the moment.

I live in the middle of the UK. The last few year's we have seen very little snow, but not this year. It has not stopped snowing since overnight on Wednesday/Thursday. Nothing like others around the World see each winter but for us........yikes............we can't cope!! we have little experience in driving etc and I have had a snow shovel for 5 years which we have never needed . The forecast is for up to -12 tonight so tricky driving conditions .

It is still snowing , so the 4th night, but still a fraction of what other KP'ers will have experienced. More of a worry to me is that I cannot get over to see my Brother, I have all his shopping, but can't get there to see him.

Here are some photo's.

Keep safe & warm everyone :o)

Your photo’s are beautiful especially the one with your outdoor table and chairs. When I lived in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada we were often snowed in and I do remember emailing friends and family a similar photo and asking if anyone would care to visit for tea, coffee and cake, lol! I meant for them to join me in the snow.
I love the snow it’s beautiful but I’m not so fussy on driving during the storms anymore.
Enjoy it while you can, again I think it’s beautiful.

I look at snow as a blessing. It keeps me from shopping and spending money. I hear my mother's voice so clearly, "What do you need it for?" so I don't buy.

We don't get much snow on Merseyside unfortunately, being so close to the west coast. A few flurries here but it is below freezing. I don't mind it cold as long as it doesn't rain. Grandson so excited to see snow falling but so upset it didn't stick and he couldn't make a snowman. Nice for a few days but don't know how we'd cope for longer than that. Stay warm and safe

Oh my goodness, stay warm and don't hurt yourself moving that stuff around.

Yes, it can be pretty, but I would just as soon not have it at my house.

Just think of all the wool you can wear. It looks beautiful to me - I miss snow!

What beautiful views! We just got our first real snow of the year here in northwestern Illinois, but not as much as you have. :-) Enjoy it while you can ... you'll be out running around before long, I'm sure!
