Left a mark on our hearts...

A Real Snow Day!

The snow began late afternoon yesterday.  By dusk it was coming down in earnest.

While the rest of the East is sick of all the snow, we here in the deep South-Eastern part of the nation are enjoying the novelty!

After all, if it has to be freeze-yur-backside-off-cold, then the least it can do is throw 6 inches of snow for a bit of entertainment!


My apologies to the North East who are up to their rooftops in the stuff.


News reporter to children:  “How long will you stay out in the snow?”

A mid-teen responds:  “Till 1:00 o’clock!”  Looks at parent… “If it’s OK with my mom; can we Mom?”  Looking hopeful and adding, “After all, there’s no school tomorrow!


Photo Friday: snow day

Bob came in from the cold asking,  “How do you tell the difference between snow and sleet?”

A cursory glance through the window had me claiming that it was sleet.  I went outside and it sounded like sleet.  Hitting the ground you could hear the little rasp as it landed on leaf and dried blade.

Suddenly, I realized that what was on the porch and leaves did not have that characteristic pillow shape of sleet.  It was perfect little snowflakes!  I only wish the cold didn’t make me shake.



A double-click will bring these into sharper view!


Stay in, stay warm, and if you must go out dress warm and drive carefully!


Have a great weekend!

Fun while it lasted!

This morning, for an hour, it snowed with abandon…

By the way, Frellnick and Polly are now inseparable, and doesn’t Frellnick look  proud?  I guess their little honeymoon in the back yard did the trick… 

He doesn’t take any guff off of Georgie now!
