The Cold November Snow

Geez, it’s fucking COLD out here!!!

After getting teased with a couple “blink and you’d miss them” snow events earlier in the week, Wednesday evening into Thursday morning brought us our first real snow of the season… and our first significant snowfall since at least the winter of 2015-16.  What’s more, snow on November 14th is almost unheard of where I live.  Stray flurries, sure… back in 1993, it snowed a tiny bit on Halloween for crying out loud.  But 4-5 inches of the white stuff in mid-November where the first snow is always after Thanksgiving…. preposterous!  And I think this chilly squirrel who braved the elements Thursday morning to pose for me would agree about this early blast of winter.  As these out of season snows tend to go, it was sunny and relatively warm yesterday, and now most of the early bird snow has melted into the water table.

I’ll have some more snow squirrel pictures to share in future Saturday Squirrel installments… mostly of this guy.  You can thank Trisha for demanding that I get squirrel in the snow pics!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I can almost hear what he’s thinking…….”C’mon Mr. Camera Guy – how about tossing some peanuts out your front door for the poor pitiful squirrel who’s ALLOWING you to photograph him! Huh? Huh?”


    • That’s funny since I did throw peanuts and an ear of corn out by the tree to encourage them to come out in the snow. He did take notice of the corn cob and…. well, that may be a story for next Saturday!

    Cute little guy! He looks like he’s getting ready to throw a teeny-tiny snowball at someone.

    So that’s what a SnowSquirrel looks like. Part snowman, part nearly frostbitten squirrel. It’s all fun and games until somebody’s tail, or worse yet, nuts, freezes…

    Awww, Snow Squirrel is so cute! He looks a little cold though. Maybe his winter coat hadn’t fully grown in before this early season snow. Although, his tail certainly looks fully fluffed! Thank you for getting some squirrel in snow pictures for us. Seeing squirrels on snow makes me happy. 😀

    • I think I would be pretty cold too if I were laying in a pile of snow like that! This snow really clung to the tree limbs, and I’m not surprised I didn’t see much running around like usual. Squirrels have nobody to plow their roads for them!

  5. I’m with the squirrel! it’s an El Nino year, so … Actually, as far as I know, what they means is draught in Australia, but around here, probably way too much snow.
