First Snow



Took this photo just a few minutes ago.
I'm a little giddy!
The ground is getting white!
I want to just sit and stare out the window!

  1. We've already had a flurry here, no doubt a sample of what's to come!

    1. We don't get weather in Britland, we get samples!

    2. Samples are nice...just a little taste without a belly full. haha.

    3. Not if one of the "samples" is a tornado! We do get them.

    4. A sample tornado? ha...sounds better than a real one. I suppose you hide in that homemade cabinet of yours when one blows over?

    1. Oh dear! I would love it...but it seems a bit early. Mid December this would be more welcome to most people! I don't really think it will stick to our ground...too warm underneath. Love watching it fall, though!

  6. Well when you're done staring out there, you're welcome to come stare at ours. There's more than I'd like to see but alas, it is November.

    Love the header. It makes me want to slurp on a hot chocolate right now.

    1. When I was a freshman in college, a girl in my dorm was from Florida and had never seen snow! She was so excited when winter came~and she froze the whole time. ha.

  8. It's going to be a long winter. We'll try to send our snow your way since you like it so much. :)

    1. It didn't last long...melted away...I guess more is on it's way, though!

  10. Snow flurries are always exciting! Like you, I get giddy as well. Like a little kid! I'm not ready for them here yet though, even though the weather guru's all say we will get more than normal this year. Here we get 2 or 3 snows a year.... mostly 3 - 6 inches.... occasionally, we get some that are disastrous with 1 foot or so.... shuts down life for about a week!! Stock up the woodpile!!! Oh yeah... next week's chore!!

    1. You guys down there just don't have the salt, plowing trucks and driving experience to deal with a foot or more, I'm sure. I think it would be kind of fun for life to shut down like that. I don't mind being snowed in as long as the power stays on and the refrigerator is full. ha,....the perfect scenario for a hermit like me. lol....

  17. Oh, wow! We got our first snow today too! You captured yours beautifully . . . I hope it's a nice blanket for you- mine is all melted and now we just have an ice rink out there! :(

  18. What a pretty picture it makes. It was chilly in CA today. Not like your chilly, but I had my jeans and denim jacket on.

    1. Yes, that is a little chilly for you! Maybe a blanket while you're out on the balcony? Ha.

    2. Hey...did your leaves ever turn color?

      Delete
    3. No, they are still green. Some of the other trees in the complex dropped their leaves, but ours are still green. I'm liking that as it would look so bare if all the leaves were gone.
