First Snow

I've had the studded snow sneakers on my Winter beater since early October. I've had salt and new snow shovels nearly as long. I did this on the strength that Murphy's Law would dictate that if I'm prepared, it's not going to snow. Sorry, folks, it's finally happened.

My front yard.

My back yard.

Out my kitchen window. No, I don't usually see this view; I held the camera as high as I could to take the picture for "artistic reasons".

Mango and Nichole, it's coming your way. Sorry; I tried to protect you. Thor advises you all to stay inside where it's warm, because dogs don't belong in the freezing white stuff.

It's pretty!... but I can understand why dogs don't belong in it - because most days I don't like it either :)

We're in the middle of a blizzard here but it's not actually laying a lot of snow........mostly its just flying by in a horizontal fashion ;)Is that ruby glass in your header? I love it!

Love the new festive Header photo. (I should really update mine.)

Beau & Lucy love the snow. The go snowplowing. Abby just sits in the yard and screams at the sky and Dudley won't go out at all! g

Yep, we got it too. My post will be up on Garden Tuesday. I am, of course, disappointed that it snowed on a Saturday!!! What a waste of a good snow day.

we've just had our first real snow too. there was a sprinkling earlier in the week, but i won't count it. sigh--i guess the cold will really set in now and i may as well prepare myself.
i like the new header, by the way. :)

Your pal,

Now THAT'S a CAR!

And by the way, your first snow is SO BEAUTIFUL!

I am actually envious. I miss seeing that form of beauty so much.

I'm crazy, I know.

Crazy here in Florida...

It's so pretty! This is how I best like snow--looking at it through pictures, far away ;) Just kidding--the snows around Christmas are the best. Great pics!

Channon said...

Beautiful! As you know, we got more wintery mix than snow, but when we ventured out yesterday, we discovered that a few miles away, they'd had almost all snow!

Pam said...

I love the look of fresh fallen snow - I grew up in the mountains and I miss having a white Christmas. It's bitter cold and super windy today - miserable.

The Blonde Duck said...

We never got snow. :(

And I have made PB pie, and I LOVEEEEEEE it!

Nichole said...

Zeus agrees with Thor... he says the snow is fun, but this cold crap and ice is not...
