The "big" storm has fizzled for us

UPDATE: THE STORM HIT US GOOD AND HARD. NO RAIN. ALL SNOW...
Turkey footprint probably made when there was slush on Tuesday.
This was on the trail over to the pond today.
So much for the big storm drama. It is a turkey of a storm! Now, we are supposed to get about 1" of snow. It is mostly going to be a rain event for us. UGHHHHH.....
Our dock stays over at the pond's edge and it rests on the picnic table all winter long.
But, here are some snowy shots before the rain!
Branches reach out to grab sunlight (and snowflakes;-)
There are lots of mighty oaks, maples and pine trees along the pond's edge.
And, the pond sedges and grasses lean over due to the prevailing wind from the north.
Everybody leans toward the south as the cold north wind blows.
As you can see, there are indents into the ice as the grasses were blown down while the water froze.
