That is what teenagers now say when things are too weird to understand or believe. Without going into details, that has been my week. So to move away from "cra-cra" I will post some photos of the lovely white dust that decorated us this past week and forced us to slow down. We are a little too excited because this is the first snow in years that was visible and lasted.

It started light and with very small snowflakes. 

Above taken through a screened window from the second story.  You can see the flakes getting larger and starting to cover everything.

Soon the scene across the river was starting to become hidden behind the flakes as large a duck feathers.

Even the birds were dressed in snow!

I looked out the kitchen window and it looked as though a fox had visited recently!

I grabbed my coat and scarf and put on snow boots.  I also got a plastic sleeve to cover the camera and see if I could find that crazy fox, as I had stumbled on the pair a few years ago after a snowfall.

I was early enough that most of my neighbors still have unblemished driveways.

The street itself bore different markings.

A man outside the neighborhood with a large dog walks down our rural street.  I must have missed him by an hour or so!

It was a lovely if brief walk in the cold, and for those of you who are sitting outside under a palm tree or shopping in a busy city, I hope that this was a bit of change.  For those who are under snow, I hope this was not too boring.


  1. How fun that you on the other coast are sharing snow pics. Here in the Puget Sound country, Facebook is full of our snow pics too. I just posted mine on my blog.

  2. pretty pictures but I'm glad that's outside your window and not mine. though we are getting some exceptionally cold weather the next 5 day and they predict a wintry mix which mean snow/sleet for Monday. it can go back where it came from as far as I'm concerned.

  3. Beautiful scenes...and I'm sorry you discovered man and dog prints instead of foxes.

  4. That’s a pretty snow fall.

  5. Gorgeous white scenery. I put some food out for the birds and so far not a one has come to snack. I must be patient.

  6. It's beautiful, but i hope our swamps do not get any. We do not do well with the white stuff here.

  7. Your delight in the snow makes me smile! Lovely!

  8. Looks like my place. We are covered in snow and the dogs love it. I have to keep letting them out and that is making my house cold each time I open and close the door. I have to go outside also to check the light in the shop that is on my well, to check the propane levels, to feed the cats and to feed the guinea fowl. I am only hoping that the roads will be passable tomorrow so I can get to my first vaccine.

  9. Simply beautiful. Here we are just grey, but they do say it may rain tonight.

  10. I love this sequence of photos. Am reminded of experiencing those snowfalls and being out in them.


Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
