We have been having wintry type weather for nearly two weeks now. I fully realize that there are folks in other parts of the country who have it WAY worse than us but I was getting a little tired of rescheduling things, having to work from home, hearing people complain...and yet, we didn't actually get any snow (or enough to really matter).
Well, things have changed!
Started snowing last night about 5:30pm and didn't slack off until around midnight. I am like a little kid so I was pretty much awake all that time checking out the window. I'm actually a little thankful that it stayed cold enough to stick around until this morning.
We got out in it - while it was very actively snowing around 8:30 last night - and played some...even taking Gwen on a 3 block walk. She loved it...lots of snuffling and digging.
We ended up with about 7 inches in the yard which is pretty much the most snow I've ever seen. We got about 6 inches two Christmases ago but this is pretty stellar.
My favorite back yard tree...lots of snow on the limbs.
Just now - about 3 hours after this picture was taken - this tree is mostly free of snow. Its been falling off and melting all morning which is both beautiful and sad.
This is i the back yard!
Our street this morning. I love that you can see all the way up to Lookout Mtn. in the background. Thankfully there wasn't too much traffic needing to head out. Chad was supposed to be off today but went in anyway - nice guy that he is - which was a good thing. Most of 3rd shift didn't come so he was relieving folks from yesterday's 2nd shift who have been at work for 16 hours.
Nice snow hat on the mailbox.
Won't be having a fire in the fire pit and lounging any time soon.
And now it is blue skies and warming up! It'll all be gone by tomorrow I'd guess.
