Snow!!

I woke up this morning... looked out of the window....


and what did I see?


SNOW!!!!!

and LOTS of it!!!! Now we hardly ever get snow... so this is exciting stuff... and it seems as well as beautiful, largely disruptive!


The bus is allready stuck in our road (been there for half an hour, in spite of neighbour boys with spades gritting in front of the wheels.....)

and who has been padding in the backyard ????

Beautiful! I love in a very snowy climate but I still get such a charge from the first snowfall. I love it when it snows at night, it's so peaceful.

Oops, I mean I LIVE in a very snowy climate! But I guess I love here too so that is also correct.

Bwaaahahahaahaaaaa.....sorry to laugh but we woke up to 9" of snow and it is still snowing...we're supposed to get 12"-18" today, it will be a record snowfall for Dec for this area!!:)

Your snowfall is lovely as is your neighborhood. Great pictures...right now it is snowing too hard here to really get a good picture....when it slacks up I'll blog about it!:)

Have you started shopping yet?:)

I agree with DeeRoo - looks like a pretty normal winter scene in my neck of the woods! It has actually just started snowing really heavily here in Edinburgh and looks worse than your road after 10 mins!! Still exciting for you as I know you hardly get any snow way down south - enjoy!!

I know you guys are hardened in dealing with snow! but for us here it is a novelty! starting to thaw here a bit so can get the car down the hill again...

DeeRoo said...

No...we aren't hardened....a couple inches of snow here closes schools because it is very hilly and steep around here....this snow is going to get the schoolkids on their xmas vacation sooner!:)

It looks lovely! And, just in time for Christmas too....I'm envious. We're having temps in the mid to high 70's. Lovely weather, but not very festive. Congratulations!

Oh that looks so beautiful. Maybe a White Christmas.

Rafael's Mum said...

Saw your blog Dee! WOW!!! Started some foodshopping today..

Lauranie said...

Well..your town is already so BEAUTIFUL and scenic...the SNOW just made it even more so! How exciting!! Rafael must have had some cold tootsies! :D

Cathy said...

How wonderful Marguerite, I would love to experience a white Christmas just once even, I cannot imagine it, but so lovely to see it through your eyes! Have a fabulous week leading up to Christmas! xo

It all looks so pretty and picturesque and those little paw prints are just cute. Does Rafael have one of those little coats to keep him warm in winter?

We still have about 10cm of snow, deep crisp and even as the song goes. I love the snow, but not sure about driving in it, good that we are home today... Just enjoy.

leslie said...

oh yeah...the snow was 9" deep this weekend. a dusting is pretty but enough is enough and it is going to snow tomorrow or sometime silly before christmas. i am just glad my wedding was the week before!

Your town looks so lovely! As I write this, it is snowing outside here in Colorado -- but then, snow is not at all unusual for us! Looks like it's going to be a White Christmas.
