Alabama Snow

Last night before we went to bed I flipped on the light on the back deck and snow was as thick as a poundcake on the bannisters.
By this morning, we had almost 6 inches which is more than we've had in a very long time. The thing is, most Alabama snows are different than say, an Ohio snow.
We got out this morning and played with the dogs and our great nephew until we couldn't feel our feet.
The sun came up and painted the snow in the trees a most incredible color. We shot a bunch of pictures before coming in to the fireplace.
Jilda whipped up some hot chocolate and then started frying bacon. I whipped up some waffles and all
ate in silence as we looked out the garden doors at the beauty just beyond.
By lunchtime the snow was gone for the most part and it felt almost warm enough to swim.


  1. You so many ways.
    Love this!

  2. How fabulous is that, wow...

    We have a joke in Nova Scotia... you don't like the weather... just wait 5 minutes... we have had days like that too... great to enjoy them :)

  3. Now that's the way to have snow...enjoy it in the morning...gone in the afternoon! If only that was how it worked here in the Midwest!

  4. Now that's winter! Here and gone. I dream on.

  5. Looks like a winter wonderland!!

  6. Yes - I noticed that LOTS of folks enjoyed this snow (unlike the ice storm we had a couple of weeks ago). This snow even waited until most people got home before coming down. People were putting all kinds of joyful pic on Facebook.

  7. That's the only way to have a snow storm. I also have a DVD of a snow storm, on a loop.
