It's Raining, It's Snowing



Posted by Picasa

Look really closely at these photos.

Do you see something that is not supposed to be there?

No, I know the shrubs need pruning and the yard needs weeding.

Not that.

Squint.

Now turn your head down to the right.

Now look.

Do you see something glistening and white?

That my friends is snow.

Yup, the first of the season.

Probably the first in several seasons.

It may be all the snow I see this year so I took the opportunity to run around in the flurries and snap a few photos.

I know it is hard to see.

I know it looks like a slight case of dandruff falling from the sky.

But I live in the south and we don't see much snow.

Ever.

So I admit I got a little giddy about the flurries.

Is it possible to make just a teaspoon of Snow cream?

We got a few snow flakes out here yesterday! When my co-workers told me it ws there, I didnt believe it til I saw it with my own eyes! I love snow...as long as I dont have to go out in it!

Chelle said...

You are so lucky! I love snow. Love it!

We don't get any down here, either. I am hoping to see some when we go up to the Midwest for Thanksgiving!

Julie said...

I am so jealous! I love snow and we really haven't had any here in CT except in the dead of night and it is gone by morning..... BOOO....

Krystyn said...

I'm totally not jealous. It was cold enough for snow here, but no precip.

Glad you were able to enjoy it.

Ivy said...

We were so excited at school that we left lunch 5 minutes early and ran outside in the snow flurry that lasted a total of 15 minutes!! YEA!!

I gotta admit, I HATE snow. I hate cold weather and I hate snow. I like it hot! Why do I live in KS then? No choice! We haven't had any snow flurries yet though-thank goodness!

Wendi,
That is not called snow (says this Minnesotan) this would be called sleet or frozen rain or maybe hail, but not snow.

Your crazy. LOL~

I get so excited when it snows! Glad you got the pictures! :)

Ellen said...

I totally see you flakes....haha. We also got some snow here on the island. It was snowing hard for about a whole 15 minutes. But oh what a gorgeous 15 minutes it was. Loved it!

So, did the schools close down early & did they salt the roads?
Did you run to the store to get milk & bread?

Cause that's what they would do in Rky Mt. ;)

amanda said...

yay for flurries!!

we had some last weekend and i was positively giddy!!

Marla said...

snow... thanks for showing me exactly how to find it :)

Laural Out Loud said...

Once I enlarged the picture I could see the snow flurries. Before that, though, I was thinking, this girl must really want some snow. LOL.

Lauren in GA said...

*sniff* all of our friends in Virgina got over an inch. I am so happy for you that you got to see dandruff, at least :)

Jenifer Howard said...

We got to wake up to a nice blanket of snow here and it was heading your way!!! Hopefully it will stick there for you too!!

Lauren said...

I do love how everyone acted like it was a blizzard and ran to the store to get bread and milk. The first snow(usually only) of the season is always exciting for me. I like snow but only NC snow because it rarely happens and when it does it only lasts about a day!

OHmommy said...

LOL.

We have a foot of snow on the ground as I type and expected to get another one. I will take pics for you!

Kristen said...

Yea for snow!!!! And for the record I can totally see it even without tipping my head to the side!

Were the kids thrilled??

Grammy Staffy said...

Ok I am really jealous. It is still warm in CA with no hint of cool yet.

Have a wonderful, maybe even snowy, Thanksgiving.... and send a little of that "cold" my way.

Erin said...

Wendi... I love ya girl... but I just don't see it. I squinted, I looked to the right, I even looked again. I don't see it.

When we get dumped on with snow- I will box some up for ya and ship it your way. Utah snow... it's the best snow on earth!

♥ spoiled mommy ♥ said...

Ha, thats how it is here...we got more than I expected but as fast as it came- it went! I RAN out there and snapped a few photos..the photos sure do make it look like it was a winter wonderland.

Stephanie said...

You are lucky! I wish we'd get some of that cold weather here! We're at 78 today :( Too hot!

Wendy said...

Snow in Central Texas would be exciting too!
