You Capture - Red

With the "Blizzard of 2011" hitting the area on Tuesday and Wednesday, finding red amongst the 2 feet of white snow was a bit challenging but fun. I went on a walk around the neighborhood with my neighbor to enjoy the beauty of all of the snow drifts and found red peeking out just screaming for me to take a picture. During our walk we saw 2 cars get stuck and a snowmobile. Luckily we are nice neighbors and all pitched in to help them. The County roads were shut down to all vehicles except for emergency vehicles but some just don't listen to those warnings. It's unfortunate because while the cars were stuck, the plows were trying to plow our roads and this was just causing them to have to sit and wait for them to get out of the way. I'm a rule follower and unless I was dying, I wasn't going anywhere! I hope you enjoy my red captures.

 A red fire hydrant buried in snow. I hope the fire department doesn't need to use it.

On the deck my planters still had my 4th of July flags sticking out. It's amazing how long that plant survived.
Last but not least, my red shovel sticking out from the very deep snow next to our back door. We keep it there so we can shovel for the dogs but this was going to take a bit more than shoveling, we had to dig ourselves out of the snow!
