Our first big snow




I couldn't resist taking some pictures of our November snow.  I couldn't brave going out in the front yard, so I just stepped out on the deck and took pictures of the view out our family room windows.  Aren't the trees beautiful!  I love it when it snows because it is so beautiful,  but just don't like to get out and drive in it.    We live in a new neighborhood so do not have really tall trees in our yard yet, but the trees behind us are gorgeous.  We live pretty close to the mountains.   I did take a picture of the birdbath/fountain in our backyard and you can see how much snow we have.  Can you see the large snowflakes coming down in the pictures?   My DH has been out with the snow blower for over an hour.  I think we got at least a foot of new snow overnight.   Needless to say, he doesn't like the snow -- he would much rather be out on the golf course!  We have winter storm warnings, so I think we will be staying in today.

Okay I'll agree it's beautiful, but man you can have it! I hate snow, cold weather and anything else that comes with it LOL. I'm a summer girl! the sun is shinny here and 36 degrees, to cold in my book but at least we don't have the white stuff. Stay warm, good time to stamp LOL

So pretty! I'm looking forward to snow here, but hopefully not as much as we got last year!!! 2 big blizzards just days apart is too much for me! :D Enjoy!

Selma,

Well, it's pretty as long as it is in your back yard and not mine. I like to look at it, but I hate trying to get around in it. Like Joan said, it is a good day to stay in and craft. Wish I was there to craft with you.

Brrrrr! Pretty snowy, but if you can stay in and be warm it's all good. My hubby would be in his glory! Santa came a little early and brought him a nice, shiny new John Deer snow blower and he is dying to try it out. It even has hand warmers!!!!!
