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!

Lots of trees around here still have autumn leaves.

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.
