Default Yes it does snow in Tennessee!

Our first snow this season came this past Saturday. Lots of lovely steady snow for several hours, but no lasting accumulation here in the valley. Some of the higher country did hold several inches. Unfortunately, work schedule prevented me going to view the high country, but here are some views of our saturday morning snowfall.

Snow stuck around for a few hours, just a dusting on the oaks...

As the snow melted and blew away, all the little birds and squirrels became very active in a frenzy of feeding (must have known about the very cold weather to follow...)

East Tennessee winters are rarely severe, but we do enjoy seeing and experiencing all 4 seasons!

Thanks for any suggestions or critique on these photos. Have a warm day!!

Indeed, the squirrel is quite delightful and so are the birds. The photos are as good as any of their type that I've seen anywhere. As for a "critique".....no way and I'm not qualified to either.

Please keep your snow but do keep sharing such lovely images!

And thanks for posting.

Here on the Canadian Prairies (at least in the part I live) it is forecast to be -29 Celsius in a couple of days.
We have snow now. Once snow comes it's usually here till March, early April.

Great shots! It looks like you have sorted out the color issues with your Squirrel pictures. Your bird pictures and others are as usual first class.

Was in Maine this week end and had 4" of snow Saturday night. Weather is cold enough now for snow making on the ski slope.

In spite of the snow my bird feeder is still way down in bird count.

Wonderful shots! I woke up to a couple of inches of snow this morning - while I love snow, I'm not so sure how pretty it is at 4:30 in the morning. And of course, I had to work so I'm missing all the pretty white stuff. Oh well, there's the possibility of more later on in the week.

it flurried here, but not much more than that.

the first shot is kind of interesting, the way you captured the snow flakes but let the trees bur a bit, nice use of selective focus.

but my pick is the bird shots, really love the 2nd one, nice sharpness and good profile.
