Parts of our state received between 20 to 25" of snow in a 24 hour period. It left hundreds of motorists stranded on highways, just an hour South of our home for 48 plus hours. I had planned on flying back from Florida on Wednesday, but with the dreary weather reports, we decided to see if my flight could not be changed. Due to a mechanical problem, my flight to Florida had a five hour delay and it was because of that little tidbit, the airlines gave me a one time courtesy change and I was able to come home on Friday, after the worst of the weather for our area was behind us. Here at home we had an ice covering and then a topping of 9 1/2" of snow. My husby had to fight to get out of our driveway and neighborhood and then drive nearly 100 miles to reach me, but all went off very well and I was thankful to get back home.
As for this week, I had selected a few things that I had in draft form. These were all taken on country lanes near where I live. There are 2 first year Red-Shouldered Hawks in flight and another one perched and hunting down further. I will begin to share images from my visit with my daughter and her family next week.
I am missing some of my regular people from my 2 posts last week and hope that all is well with each of you~

I will be linking up with Judith for:
The American Robins always seem to know as does much in nature, before mankind knows that a weather alert is coming. In this case we had freezing temperatures for several days before my journey began. There were hundreds of American Robins eating Holly berries and filling up to the top heavy level and had to rest, before attempting flight~
The following 3 mosaics were taken upon my return home to Tingsgrove Friday afternoon~
