Snow

The snow began falling late Tuesday night.  When we woke up Wednesday morning everything was covered in white.  It was beautiful and the snow was still falling.  I measured the snow shortly before lunch while the snow continued to fall down around us.  It was almost 11 inches deep with no end in sight.

When we lived in Indiana I remember driving by an Amish home one day.  It was a cold and snowy day and laundry was out on the line.  Freeze dry?  Have you ever tried it?  I haven’t and have no intentions to try.  Look how much snow is stuck to my clothes lines.  Imagine if I had clothes hanging out there. EEEKS!!

I don’t think we’ll be using that swing or eating outside anytime soon.

Our poor trees!  Some were still green.  Our Apen still had some fall left in it.  Now it has winter all over it.

Look at my Preacher hard at work!  Gotta love him.   He does more than just sit behind a desk all day.

Poor little pumpkin.  It can’t see anymore.  :)

You’re looking at these photos thinking that I left something out right?  The kids?  Oh, yes.  They had a little fun out there as well.  We’ll save that for another day.  Go grab some hot chocolate.  I’ll wait.  Until next time…

One year an ice storm surprised us around Thanksgiving time. Our pumpkins were frozen to the porch. There was no way to remove them until next spring! The snow is pretty even if it comes earlier than we would like it.

Wow!! I can't believe the fall or lack of fall you have had! Just crazy!!

What a good idea to stick a ruler in the snow to measure it! So obvious, yet I've never thought of it!

Now that's just a sin, snow covered pumpkins. :(

And here I thought our cold, blustery Halloween felt a little too much like winter.

Although your pictures are beautiful, it just reminds me of what is headed our way in Indiana. I hope the kids had a nice-wintery Halloween!

WOW. Beautiful and freezing!

We had snow last year-- here in HOUSTON. But it was only a teeny tiny bit. Still worth getting excited over!
