First Snow

Our first snow has arrived! It's BEAUTIFUL snow! Not enough to make you afraid to drive on the roads, yet enough to cover up all the ugly brown that we have this time of year. Everything looks clean and fresh!

Now, if ONLY it would snow inside my HOUSE! :)

I made my first snowball... which actually turned into an iceball because it was such good packing snow. I sent it to a friend via email who didn't appreciate it at all! Imagine that! :)

Now our whole family is eying the weather and hoping for enough snow for snowman making and sledding! We have the BEST hills around here for sledding! It's completely invigorating.

So, if you don't have snow, I'm happy to share some! But not too much. We need it for our snowman! Enjoy the pics! :)

The snow begins:



The wind picks up!



First snowball!




This beautiful view is 3 miles from our house. I drove up into the hills as the snow was starting to melt. The clouds had broken up and the sky was amazing! Views like this just sort of put things into perspective for me and bring a sense of calm.



I hope the next snow lasts a bit longer! It keeps snowing and melting. We want sledding snow and DRIFTS! :) Is there anything more fun than tunneling through a snow drift? :)

I like the snow for only one month though! ((wink))

Ah, I only like snow because I don't have to drive in it. :)

I saw the pics and they were great!

Only one month of snow? Say it isn't so! :)

Summer,

SEVENTY-SIX degrees? WOW! That's like a heat wave! :)

Hi Chris! Just stopping in to visit. I would gladly give you all the snow that we get! HA! I'm not much of a fan of it myself. I hope you and your kids get some sledding in. Your kids are cute as can be, by the way. :)

Okay I had to come back to inform you. It's freezing cold here today! I had to bust out the winter coats today. I just wish our weather would make up it's mind!

Chris said...

Oh Summer! That's harsh! 76' and now FREEZING?

Brrrr!

I was eyeballing an electric blanket today at Sam's Club. Although, it's a bit warmer today. Above freezing, anyway. :) I like cold weather, but I like to thaw out occasionally as well!

But, I am SO GLAD you came back to tell me about your weather. :) I'll be sure to send you some snow too... we have more on the way tonight! :)
