Normally we don't see a lot of the fluffy white stuff - otherwise referred to as snow- but this week has been a rare exception. Not only have we had snow- but more than a foot of it fell at our house. It is the most snow any of our children have ever seen at once. Which is funny since both Frank & I are originally from upstate NY where it was snowy all the time.
It is, however, slowly melting. But with nights in the teens its not happening too fast - and when it does it is going to be slushy muck. We are anticipating possibly another blast this week (I personally am hoping it does not come this far south) just in time for Christmas.
And while you may be thinking 'awwwww, a Christmas snow'... we spent almost 2 days without power and we do not have enough wood on hand to weather another storm. Several of our trees did lose quite a few branches, but it's not dry wood & the chain saw needs more gas. Plus the roads are already a slushy muck and our truck is not 4wd. Frank's scout is, but it is not registered.... so I am headed to town tomorrow morning while Frank heads to church. Our feed for the horses was not able to be delivered yesterday & they have no idea when they will be able to get here so we are down to our last few bags with an unknown future as to when the 2000lbs we ordered will arrive..... so there are some challenges associated with the snow. Friends of ours are snowed in on their mountain and trying to dig out today.
I have a ton of photos on my facebook account, I will try & get some on here a little later.
It is very pretty though.
