Winter

This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 23: Winter. We were calling for snow, and when I woke up this morning I was so glad Winter is finally here. Winter means ice and sleet in our area.

In case you have not noticed, the white stuff on the ground is snow. 🙂

Actually we had more ice, our deck was covered with ice.  We had black ice on the roads and it was treacherous this morning going to work. I was driving 35 mph on a 45 mph speed limit.

Lee and Max was skating on the deck.

Lee didn’t have school today and when she heard she was jumping for joy. This is the typical Winter in our area, the ice and snow melt by noontime.

  1. There is seldom any ‘jumping for joy’ at my house when there is a snowfall. The driveway is long and requires quite a bit of labor to clear. However, I do recall how happy I was as a child to have a ‘snow day’ with no classes to attend.

  2. Lee is having fun on the deck. 🙂

    I used to remember skating on our frozen lawn when heading off to school in the early morning. That was about as much “snow” we would ever get in California.

  3. Glad to see you got a little snow, lets hope you get enough for Lee to make a snowman. 🙂 Otherwise I´m willing to exchange weather with you. Nice winter photos, Ginger.

  4. Our winter is here is most bleak at times lovely. I have been fortunate to take long walks amidst the snow and have posted photos on my other blog. If I have not said happy New Year, than it is stated now. Be well and happy!
