I woke up Friday to see this starting. The snowflakes started out small but then got bigger and bigger.
The street in front of our house quickly became covered in snow and I was so happy that Jeff was taking the truck to work that night and bringing home a ton of wood pellets for our pellet stove.
Saturday we had a Winter Wonderland on our hands and we took full advantage of it! We hot tubbed that night, watched the movie "The Rookie" and sipped hot drinks and shared a big bowl of popcorn.
The momma moose and her baby were making their rounds in our neighborhood and I kept hoping they would come and "trim" my raspberry and blackberry bushes for me. Unfortunately for me, they already got their fill in our neighbor's yard.
Sunday found us with a thick crust of ice on top of the snow that crackled when stepped on. I don't know why, but that sound brings me so much pleasure and a smile to my face.
I ran outside and started to take pictures because it was so beautiful!
The way that the snow curves while coming off the roof reminds me of the crashing waves in Hawaii where I grew up and the icicles are sparkling in the afternoon snow just glitter like diamonds. Thank you Old Man Winter for this lovely early gift. I think we all need to be reminded of the beauty all around us in these troubling times.
