Snow Day

We woke up Sunday morning to almost 5 inches of snow. I had been up for a good part of the night and enjoyed the peacefulness of watching it fall. Not that I wouldn’t have rather been asleep, but once I woke and discovered it snowing I was not able to go back to sleep. Selena cracked me up when she first woke up and looked out the window, “SNOW!” I asked her how it got there? She said, “Probably from the snowflakes!”

Pal was the first one to venture out into the snow. He was really enjoying himself out there. It was fun to watch him. In the meantime inside the house Papa was getting ready to go out and clear the snow off the vehicles, so I hurried up and got Selena ready to go out too.

Both her and Papa were out for about an hour and a half before I called them in for a hot bowl of cream of wheat. Of course you know once all the toes and fingers were warmed back up it was time for more outside fun.

Enjoy some of the random pictures of all the joy and beauty that we found as we enjoyed our snow. Wonder how much more we will get, they certainly did not predict this amount in the first round of the storm.

I am sure we will be back out enjoying more of this winter wonderland. Papa and Selena tried to build a snowman but the snow was too dry to pack very well for that, boy I don’t know that I have ever seen such dry fluffy snow here. It is sure beautiful though!

  1. "Probably from the snowflakes" - Selena's pretty sharp :) Care to send some of that white stuff over the mountain?

  6. This is so pretty! I am a little jealous, but then I keep reminding myself how much I hate driving in the snow :) Enjoy it while it lasts.
