Snow, snow, snow

Again with the snow!
We're fortunate her, relatively, since we almost never get snow, and what we do get rarely sticks. Lucky, that is, if you don't like snow.
I do.
But I don't get to see it often. Living where I do, close to the water in the South, snow usually passes us by, or turns to rain before it gets to us. About once a year, we get a little dusting that comes off the ocean, and that's it. If we're lucky, a little sticks to the grass and we get to see how pretty it is.
It's better for us when there's not much snow, since people don't know how to handle it. Driving's a real issue, and one I take seriously now that I'm driving the truck, since it's light in the back. I could solve this by putting bags of sand or something in the back, but it's almost never an issue, so I haven't gotten around to it.
Tonight's snow was a bonus. We were supposed to maybe get a dusting this morning, and then it was going to move on. Instead, we actually got a little accumulation. Yay!
Of course, I'm out of town. In the truck. And there's a winter weather advisory about black ice.
No worries; I'll let my friend, who I'm staying with, who lived in New England for years, drive in the morning. By the afternoon, all will be well, and I'll take the truck back home.
And maybe give some thought to putting some weight in the back.
In the meantime, here are five snowy graces:
1: Snow glitters in the moonlight.
2: I love the way doggie paw prints dimple the snow...could pass on the yellow patches.
3: The sound of falling snow.
4: It looks beautiful and doesn't last.
5: Four times...I've seen snow four times this year!

  1. I love snow too, however this year I was fed up of it by the end. I love the way childrens faces glow and their eyes sparkle after playing in it.
