Snow, Glorious Snow

Frisbit in the Snow

The path we used for the morning walk snow filled it in
This year, we have had very warm weather with next to no snow.  Finally we got some snow yesterday and last night; only 3-5 inches, but every little bit helps..  Of course, everyone has forgotten how to drive in the snow; so we were much more cautious driving to the Y this morning.

Another good thing about the snow is that the Y had very few people there at 0600 when we arrived.  This meant I could get my favorite locker and favorite swim lap lane (I swim 52 laps in the 25 yard length pool when we go to the Y).

Snow makes a much prettier picture then when it rains; of course, shoveling is not as much fun as it might be!

(The stars mean a new subject)

Last night, we watched a movie called "Christmas Lodge."  It did not have great acting or a complex plot, but it was a good (predictable) movie which the entire family could enjoy (which we did) plus it actually mentioned God and his guidance. It was refreshing having a movie that morally was right.

“Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."”   Maya Angelou

The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball. Doug Larson

Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow, Filling the sky and earth below, Over the housetops, over the street, Over the heads of the people you meet. Dancing, Flirting, Skimming along. J.W. Watson

A year of snow, a year of plenty. ~ French Proverb

Where does the white go when the snow melts?

A snowflake is one of God’s most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!

Don’t complain about the snow on your neighbor’s roof when your own doorstep is unclean. ~Confucius

There’s one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbor’s. ~Clyde Moore

I love snow, snow, and all the forms of radiant frost. ~P B Shelley

Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.  Alfred Hitchcock

Snowflakes are kisses from heaven. Unknown

Snowmen fall from heaven....... unassembled.

  1. Only 3-5 inches? That, at least, is enough to sled on...
