AN AMAZING WHITE CHRISTMAS!

"When what to my wondering eyes should appear . . ."


The 20 to 25 minute drive home from the BRD's new home last night took us an hour, in Jack's big SUV with 4-wheel drive.

As we neared our home the visibility dropped to near zero.

Outside, some 7 inches of snow had covered everything.


And this morning it's a winter wonderland out there.





It appears to be a wet, heavy snow clinging to everything.


But now the storm has passed, the sun is peeking through the clouds and as the temperature begins to rise again the big melt-off will start.

But in the meantime it's a white happy Christmas.

  1. So much prettier when viewing from inside the house. Snow on Christmas Day one day a year is about my limit.

  4. In the ER trade, that's what's known as heart attack snow, wet, heavy snow in an area that isn't used to it.
    We've got the same, but it's the light version, temp hasn't gotten above 14 in a couple days.

  5. Much the same here. And since I don't have to drive in it, I love it.
