First Day of Spring Snow Storm

March 22, 2010

I can’t believe it. The daffodils are blooming, the little Dog Tooth Violet is up and ready to bloom, and we have 12 inches of snow.

At the beginning these were the biggest snow flakes I’ve ever seen.

24 hours later and 12″ of snow, ┬áthis is the same tree! And look at all the snow hanging off the roof ready to fall.

Lovely patterns

Poor Thayer, looking pitiful at the door, wants in. Yes, she came in. She has no appreciation for snow!

Snow and Happy New Year

January 4, 2010

This is the first White Christmas I’ve ever seen in Missouri. I’m sure there were others. I just wasn’t here to experience them. But I’ve already had enough and I wish it would quit. Unfortunately, the weatherman predicts more snow this week and again this weekend. Did I mention how cold it is? To try to over come our cabin fever, Harry suggested that we take his 4-wheel-drive truck out yesterday and just drive around in the snow. How desperate can we get? So we did. And it was beautiful. Then we stopped at a local cafe and had each had a big bowl of chili. Back to the fireside.

And before I forget it, my friend, Marcy, sent this link to a video, “Celebrate What’s Right With the World” by photographer, Dewitt Jones. It’s 22 minutes long, but to watch it is a great way to start the new year. Thank you, Marcy.
