Sunday in my City

Happy Sunday all! It's another cold one here in Western New York! The sky and ground match each other. It's not quite gray but a dirty white. Our local Made In America store had a Winterfest yesterday. Featuring this guy below, along with Snowmobile jumping, Country music and hotdogs and more! We stopped by on Friday to get pictures of the SNOWZILLA  before the crowds and advertising went up. 






Trying to find the beauty in Winter can be tough, it's fun to come across things like this. I still am in shock how it is always snowing just a little here and there but always. And the bitter cold....I know it's everywhere this year...! Burr!

The beauty of winter I like, partially frozen streams

Have a wonderful warm Sunday!

Stop by San Francisco and warm up and say Hi to Unknown Mami

That is one HUGE snowman. WOW! It reminds me of someone standing alongside a Redwood tree.
Glad you're keeping warm. I am really looking forward to the crocus flowers popping up through the snow. That is if they can reach up high enough through the mounds.
Take Care and have a nice day!

I just took a picture today of a partially frozen stream...I love them too.

That's a great snowman! I am like you though and kinda over it. More than kinda actually : )

It has suddenly gotten freaking cold here too!!! But NO SNOW!!! I pray it remains that way. Is that snowman for real??

Love the giant snowman! I am not even going to mention about the weather in TX this weekend... (lest I be accused of "rubbing it in")

That is the biggest snowman I have ever seen. I don't think Florida, the whole state, has ever received enough snow to make one that big. Wow...

How in the world did they create that? It's so cool!

Is that for real? Snowzilla is incredible. It's cooler here in Central America too. Which I am enjoying. I had to put on a pair of socks today. Unheard of! I hope you have better, warmer days ahead.

Your pics are beautiful, to me. I'm sure a lot of people are just plain sick of the snow, but I'm fine with it. LOVE the pics in your header, too; as always, it's a treat.

I love Snowzilla! His nose looks like it's made out of a traffic cone.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Snowzilla is fabulous! Someone with a great sense of humor has to have come up with the idea. Hope the festival was fun.

Stay WARM!!! xo jj

That snowman is slightly frightening, although something you will surely never forget!

Very cool! reminds me of a snowman they build in Switzerland and then blow up to mark the end of winter.

Sonya said...
