Our First Snow ~

Snowy Pines

When I was making my coffee early this morning, the sky was a gorgeous pink color looking east over the horizon. We had torrential rains on tuesday with 50 to 60 mph winds for 24 hours. It was a brutal storm. Thankfully we didn't lose our power as so many folks did. Towns just north of us received 12" or more of snow. ( I personally was very envious ) Yesterday it was 50 degrees.

It was about 30 degrees this morning for barn chores. Overcast and you could tell a front of some kind was approaching. About 2 hours later I looked out the picture window and it was snowing. Not spitting snow but really snowing. Yippee!! Beautiful, fat, fluffy snow flakes...... ( guess you can tell I rather like the snow :) Of course, the first thing I thought of was getting outside with my camera.....I know the snow will melt because it's still much to warm for it to stay but I also know this is a preview of what's to come and it shouldn't be long before we really get a good snowstorm!

I love the holiday season and the snow really helped get me in the spirit. Our local radio station is playing holiday music now 24hrs a day - I really think my cows enjoy it in the barn :)
The snowman family is the first decoration I put out and they now adorn my silverware box in the diningroom. Arent' they so cute?

Have a great weekend everyone !

I'm glad it's you and not me! It was in the mid 60s here today.

Finally someone else I talk to has snow!!! Your prayers have been answered! There is talk on the TV about heavy snow for Monday. Do you ever feel the effects of a Northeastern?

It sounds like we are having the same weather here too. But your somewhat close to me. I think this storm for Monday is going to be a mostly rain event for my part of New York.

Snow always makes me want to hibernate not decorate, but hey I am glad it works for you! :)

I will just come here to look at your snow, I don't care for it so much anymore.:)

It does make everything look so pretty though, like frosting on a cake!
