It Snowed!!!



Just in case you haven't learned this about about me by now - I LOVE SNOW!! Yup, that's right. I adore those big, white fluffy pieces of frozen water that fall from the sky and which so many of you don't like. I don't snowmobile, I don't ski, but I love the snow. Last week I watched the storm moving across the country and, although I'm sad the storm wreaked so much havoc across the country, I hoped we would get snow. That didn't happen and we ended up with a lot of rain on Friday instead.

Saturday the weather forecast started predicting snow for us for late last night and early this morning. Unfortunately I was still on cold medicine and didn't wake up every hour looking for snow. But I didn't miss anything because it didn't start snowing until about 7:45 AM this morning. Just in time to drive to work. There was no accumulation to speak of, it's all gone now!

I did take some pictures just to remind me what snow looks like and I'm still waiting for the first "real" snow fall. I better get some snow soon or else I will be depressed. I've been known to start whining and get real crabby if it doesn't snow by mid-December.

My ideal place to live is in the Colorado Rockies in a log cabin with a big fireplace and big picture windows. Maybe someday . . .

I too love snow. I even like to shovel! Don't get any where I live now....except for 2 years ago where it snowed 4" on Christmas....something that has NEVER happened here. As a matter of fact, it is so rare to have snow here that they made a book about it.

I'm with you all the way - I adore snow. At least you live where you get some every winter. We get it now and then - there can be several winters in a row where we get none. In the 32+ years we've lived here there have been only 2-3 big snowfalls that lasted much more than a day or two. I've never had a white Christmas - and I want one SO badly!

I'm happy for you that it snowed. With not a snowball's chance of ever getting snow here, I still have always longed for a 'White Christmas' I can't imagine what it would be like to really count on it and have it not happen.

Interestingly, I find that it takes the blogger beta blogs longer to load than the older version. I'm on internet satellite. I'm so shocked that New Hampshire isn't covered in snow already!

I love snow too!! And we seldom get it right here at sealevel, but only have to drive 15-20 minutes to play in the mountain snow.

I love the snow, too! I loved it when we lived in "snow country" and it would snow and snow and snow and I could just sit and enjoy it. No snow for me! :-( LOL

Snow is wonderful, diamonds dancing under the streetlights, eiderdown floating,landing and tickling my cheek...
Winter is always my time of revitilization. I have more energy, more spirit and glee. I get giddy when I see the snowfall. I love bundling up against the cold. I mean when it is hot you can tke everything off and still be ... hot. When it is blustery, freezing thre is always more you can do, another layer, a glass of wine, a crackling fireplae, someone wonderful to cuddle with...
