We’ve got SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy, do we ever have SNOW!

The glory all started late yesterday morning with sleet.  We like sleet.  It bounces and looks like white sand.  We don’t like freezing rain.  It doesn’t bounce, it messes up the roads, and it makes the power go out.  Power outages equal not only no power (duh), but also no heat (propane furnace, but electric blower) and no water (well pump requires electricity), so we are very thankful that there was no freezing rain and the power has stayed on.

But last evening, it started to snow.  It’s been three YEARS since we’ve had any snow, and as everyone knows that’s two years too long.  Of course, we also know why we haven’t had any snow the past two years.  Two years ago, we joined a church whose pastor doesn’t like snow.  She prays fervently that it won’t snow, and she has a lot of faith.  I don’t think we have more faith than Pastor Barb, but I think God is just dumping out an extra-large amount of grace on us; nine inches so far, to be exact!

When I looked out around 6:45 AM, it was snowing steadily.  When I first measured it at 8:45 AM, it was about five inches deep.  It kept snowing non-stop all the way till 2:00 PM, at which point it was NINE GLORIOUS INCHES DEEP!!!  Several time during the day, I have actually found myself giddy and squealing with delight!

We did all our errand-running earlier in the week, and the events that were planned for yesterday and today were all canceled, so I got to stay home and watch it snow (and write our Christmas newsletter).  Ahhhhhhh!  I did take a number of pictures during my morning walk, some of which I will now remember how to insert into this post.

The snowplow must've slung snow against our mailbox (which was already wobbly) and knocked it over.

The creek is lightly iced and simply gorgeous.

We still have our nine inches of snow on the ground, with drifts up over a foot.  It’s cold enough this morning that even with the sun out, the icicles aren’t melting.  I am so very pleased!  Snow makes me so happy!
