November Snowstorm

A winter storm kicked into gear yesterday afternoon. All schools in the area were closed today due to the hazardous driving conditions. And to think, it's only November 18!

Mom took a few photos in the backyard during a lull in the heavy snow. It's a winter wonderland out there!
Note the leaves on the low branch of the oak tree.
Lots of trees around here still have autumn leaves.
Summer, the family dog, wishing it was still summer
It's getting deep! 
This decorative pagoda has a hat that looks like the Pillsbury Dough Boy's.
I played Horse Isle 2 for a while this morning. Two wild horses were hanging out on Harbor Isle. Xanadu and I also found a $100k pot of gold and a $6k pirate treasure! Talk about hitting the jackpot!

The horses were pretty much opposite in color: one very dark and the other very light. :) The first was a seal brown Canadian Horse stallion:

And the second was a light gray Holsteiner mare:

What a fitting horse to find during the first snowstorm of the season! Her +69 stats trump those of that Russian Heavy Draft mare that Felicity found on Saturday, so it looks like we have a new frontrunner to be the horse we keep this month. Sorry, Russian Heavy Draft!

Felicity took over playing after I was done. She and Zoom searched all of the vast White Isle for horses. I think she really likes the new breed. =) The only wild horses she found were standing pretty close to each other. Take a look!

The one on the left was a 5/6 +53 red chestnut Finnhorse mare - 17 hands tall! The one on the right was a 4/6 +36 dun Norwegian Fjord mare - only 13.1 hands tall. We decided not to keep either, since what we really could use are more stallions.
