Winter's Arrival

The forecasted snow began to fall last night, then started up again in earnest this morning. The temperature is just above freezing, so the snow is wet. Roads are slushy, but the snow in the yard is oh-so packable as Kirsten discovered as she began to make this cute little snowman.

With the snow falling, Christmas tunes playing on my computer, we're all settled into the schoolroom for the day. I hope your day is as pleasant!

What??? A real snowman in your garden? Pelle will be SO jealous! I'm afraid snpw has become a thing of the past over here...

SNOW! Send some over this way (western KY), if you would. I haven't seen any REAL good snow in about 3 years, and I'm having withdrawals. I've got my fingers crossed that we get at least one decent snowfall this season!

Oh, lucky you with snow. It decided not to bless us yesterday with the white stuff, but the forecast is for some on Saturday. I hope so! I am looking forward to a cozy day at home!!!

As much as I hate snow, what a cute snowman!!!! I think our first one (not counting four hours of flurries last week) will be here on Sunday night/Monday morning - ugh!!

Sylvie said...

What a cute snowman! I don't mind snow if I don't have to go out :)

Lelia said...

Hey Von ... would ya mind keeping all that over in your state???? LOL

I hear we are in for some weather starting tomorrow afternoon ... and lasting a day or so. Yeah, well ... I guess I could just stay in and read ... and stitch ... and ignore the winter at our doorstep

Cutest snowman I've seen in a long time. I'm so jealous! We haven't had enough to make a ball, and I love the stuff! Your pix of Idaho are so lovely too.

Wow, Von... I just dearly love what you've done with your stitching on your Google pages! It's beautiful, and your stitching is making me drool. You're so artistic in both your stitching and your displays! Very inspiring...

We're getting a bit too, but I doubt we'll be copying Kirsten's cute guy.

Oh how cute! We had snow already, but now it has all gone away as it's been so warm lately.
