White Wednesday

We Really Got Snow

After listening to the winter storm watches and warnings all week for this past weekend the snow finally started around 11:00 on Friday morning as flurries and continued through the afternoon. About 4:00 it started getting very heavy and covering the roads and appeared to be accumulating faster and faster - at least to us, who are not used to much if any snow during our winters. By the time it finished on Saturday morning we had about 5" on the ground and no ice.

We had such a cold and beautiful weekend with all the snow and since none of us had to get out and go to work on Saturday it was enjoyable. Jennifer did have to work Sunday and had trouble getting out of her drive so Mom and I shoved it during the afternoon so the sun could melt it and she could get out on Monday with no problems.

We had no mail delivery on Saturday but Mom had to check just to make sure later in the day. She put on Alan's big ole boots and shuffled her way to the mailbox and back. It was a sight to behold.

  2. Love your pretty snow pictures. I did snow too....nothing more white than that! :) Happy White Wednesday. xo

  3. Love your pictures. I miss sights like this. But I don't miss driving in it!!!!

    Can't wait to see your garden in bloom.

    Have a blessed day.

  4. How beautiful. I especially love how it looks on all your statuary. We haven't gotten any snow yet this year. We usually get at least one snowfall. We'll see since it's been so mild.

    Take care,
