Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

This is for all the readers who are NOT in a snow belt location! This is what we woke up to Friday morning. The temps have been in the low forties or below for the past several weeks. We've had some flurries and snow showers (which around here means a few inches sometimes), but this was the first snow to blanket the ground.

I just LOVE snow!! I hope this is the first of many, many snows for us. Dan cleaned out the gutters today and put in the storm windows. The other week the air conditioner came out of the dining room window. I think we are officialy battened down for the winter which has arrived suddenly. Well suddenly when you consider that we had a long Indian summer and then it turned to winter all at once!

This hill in the front yard make a nice, short, but swift sled run once the snow banks build up at the edge of the yard in front making it impossible to sail into the street. Or maybe...just maybe...we'll get the kids to take a chance on the village sledding hill. It is a narrow swath of land that is about a half mile long and was given and preserved as a sledding hill. It's just too cool!

I can't wait for more!! Let it snow!

Oh I love snow so much! Growing up in California we rarely got any of the white stuff, maybe every 5 years or so, we love it here in the plains, we get just enough to wait in anticipation for every snow fall!

We get no snow down here. So, we will live vicariously through you this year. I will post some Fall pics on my blog. I have been inspired today by the beauty of all the leaves.

I just LOVE snow too. Lived in NYC for three years and I'm back in Mexico City... no snow soon there!
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! It looks like Christmas!
