Mellow Yellow Monday and Ruby Tuesday: Color In The Snow

We had a snowstorm Saturday. I think we got a foot of snow.

During the storm I got these shots of my yellow topped trash bin wearing its snow hat ...

And my son's bright red truck ...



I'm early for RT - Mary usually posts early Monday evening.

Leora said...

Are you ready for the next one? We've got another coming on Tuesday night. You got more snow than we did (and my son said Teaneck got none).

Love your carpets of snow.

Ralph said...

The beauty of snow is that that white is complemented nicely by the least little bit of yellow and of course, ruby. We are expecting 12-18 inches on Wed, I hope you get even less - you shouldn't get more - where to put it!

SquirrelQueen said...

You do have a lot of snow, we haven't had any. Great idea for MYM & RT, the colors really stand out in the snow.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

It's cute, nice photo for MYM.

Too much of a good thing, simply is too much.
The only good thing is that life slows down, and don't we all need that in between.
One can hardly hear the noise of the traffic; the snow is such a good sound isolator.

Nukke said...

You have had much snow in this year !!!! I think it should stop snowing now. I'm so tired to sweep it away from on top of my car !
Nice pics about snow covering everything !!!

Happy Valentine to you !!!!!

luna miranda said...

Ah such a clever post - I guess if the weather is snowy, one has to be really creative - well done!

Hey Dianne, my favorite is the red car snowed back in. Looks like it had a place one before the wind picked up.

That Dallas party is 209 miles from our house. I'll opt for H1N1 shots that aren't free that would be closer. Google Maps says it is a 3 hr 28 minute drive from our home which is just north of Houston.
I try to post on Monday early afternoon, I was a little late myself. After it goes on and it looks okay to me I go back and change the date to Tuesday. That is easy to do.

Carletta said...

I guess Dianne that you were going for that little bit of yellow or little bit of red!
Cleverly done! :)

Stay warm.

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazingly, those snow hats look rather spunky! Lovely touches of colour in your white world!

Patti said...

I see...a touch of yellow and a touch of red. OK, you fulfilled the two meme requirements ;-)

So you are getting even more snow this morning. What fun.

It's coming down pretty steadlily here. But we got nothing on Saturday.

Happy belated RT, Dianne.

maryt/theteach said...

Stock market India is volatile and all those who speculate in market are loosing everyday. Please remember stock market is not for speculation purpose. If one feel investing in stock market is gamble then its better to think again.

One should always note that if they want to invest money they should do proper research be it fundamental research or technical research. Just think how come you can invest

Indian stock market is one of the most happening and emerging market. Major Indian stock exchanges are BSE and NSE and both are of world class standards.

So grab good stocks and invest that’s the bottom line.

We hope to see you in major profits.
