Polar Icecaps

November 23, 2016




. . . no, it's not really that cold or snowy over here. ;)

Saturday morning was beautiful and about 60-70 degrees, but then this big cold face blew in and everything cooled down.  On Sunday, we got about 6-9 in. of snow give or take a few (it's really hard tell)!  We an "epic snowball fight" yesterday afternoon.  Little Ann (our German Shepherd dog) was running back an forth between the two teams (the Black Bears and the Peter Cottontails) eating snowballs in midair (and any article of outside winter clothing she could get her paws on).  It's been fun!  I have missed winter because last year's winter was such a disappointment snow-wise.

What are you all doing for thanksgiving?  We will be having cousins from Canada come to stay with us from later this afternoon to Saturday to go to the Nutcracker with us as well as be here for thanksgiving.  Friday Greek lessons is canceled for this week -- hooray! -- I can procrastinate on the homework now. ;)

Here are a bunch of snowy pictures for you guys.  Who has snow?

  2. Those photos! Everything looks delightfully winter-y! I think the third last one is my favourite - it looks like it tells a story. xx

  4. We had a pathetic frost a couple days ago. Ahh! That's sounds so fuuuuun!
    Ohmygoodness WE'RE going to go see the Nutcracker, toooo! On Saturday....but stil!!
    Since all of our family lives in Kentucky, they're too far away to come here. So whoever doesn't have a place to go, we invite here, (like...friends. ;) ) and usually make/purchase Indian food from India. :D

  5. What peaceful, serene photos...snow gives photos a kind of common, monochromatic theme that I love.

    We have some snow back at home, but right now I'm in NYC, and while it's quite chilly, there isn't a lick of snow.
