Let it Snow!

Be sure to enter my fantastic year-end giveaway here.  Just a few more days
until the winner is announced!

It's no secret that I'm not a fan of cold weather.  As a matter of fact, that's something you
 learned about me from my very first post
way back in January of this year!

Really, the only time I even like winter is when there's snow on the ground.

On two separate weekends this month, Mother Nature teased me into believing
a winter wonderland was in the making.

The first time it snowed—during the first week of this month—it amounted to nothing
 more than a light dusting of the white stuff.

Then, about a week later, I watched snowflakes the size of large cotton balls
 fall from the sky.

Not only were the flakes gigantic, but the snowfall was so heavy, I just knew there
would be at least a foot of snow to blanket the landscape.

But when all was said and done, the accumulation was not more than an inch or so.

it is only December, after all, and good snowfalls don't usually arrive here
 until late January.

 this year, I got an extra Christmas present—snow on Christmas Day!
And not just a flurry, but a good snow!

What constitutes a good snow, you ask?
One that keeps this Southerner indoors, near a warm heat source, sipping a hot drink,
 and reading a good book.

Hey, it's the closest I can get to winter hibernation!!!   ; )

  1. I'm right there with you when it comes to not liking winter. I hate to be cold! I do enjoy the snow though as long as I'm inside looking out at the beautiful winter wonderland and as long as it doesn't last more than two or three days.

  2. Beautiful pictures! I love it when it snows {as long as I don't have to drive in it!}. It makes the cold weather worthwhile.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year! :-)


  3. What a wonderful snow you got!
    Happy New Year!!

  4. I'm so... with you on winter and the snow!!! We had such a wonderful snow on Christmas too. It's so... beautiful and I'm so... grateful for the days we got to hibernate with our family. :)
    I'm hoping for just one more good snow this winter!

  5. I prefer snow rather than rain in winter. Wow snowflakes have not seen it for long time. Keep warm:).

  6. Don't you just love those big sticky flakes of snow? Pretty post!

  7. My hubby said a good snow is one that comes today and is gone New Year.

  8. I am so happy that you were able to have a white Christmas! We, here in snow country, sometimes forget what it feels like to have a brown one. Your snow photos are gorgeous! I love snow, too, so I can understand the excitement and the desire to hibernate!
    Happy New Year!
    Hugs, Cindy

  9. I'm glad you got some snow-we did too here in Charlotte! Enjoy it while it is here! Happy New Year!!

  10. Must have been a beautiful White Christmas. I know you enjoyed it, hot chocolate makes anything wonderful. Happy New Year, Ginger

  11. It's snooow wonderful! Wish we had some. Even a tad would be nice. Ah well...I'll see it on the mountain tops when the clouds lift.
