Winter Storm Leaves an Icy Aftermath

A frigid cold front Tuesday night hit the area where we live.

Upon awakening Wednesday morning, I looked out the window and saw that quite a bit of snow had fallen.

Snow-covered tree branches looked like long arms ready to reach into the window!

It was beautiful outside but very, very c-c-c-c-c-old.

After breakfasts, scraped and cleaned off our cars while hubs worked on unearthing the sidewalks from their snowy covers.

Once back inside, it was warm and cozy.  

So what do bloggers do on snow (and all) days?  

Run for the camera, of course.

 As you can see, there is purple glass in the kitchen windows for a change from the holiday season's red and green. 

In the photo below, it looks like somebody's pouring snow into the glass, doesn't it?

 Isn't it wonderful to be inside our homes on inclement weather days?  

If we are able to stay home, we are lucky!

On very rare occasions, we may have some snow. Pictures of snow are always pretty, giving no hint of the complications that snow can cause.

I LOVE that purple!

No snow, but rainy and cold! So I blogged, set a tablescape and purged some items!
hugs, Linda

No it does not snow where I live but you can get to snow in about an hour and a half. So. Cal has beaches and mountains..the best of both worlds right at your fingertips....lovely pictures!

Our storm last week turned into a dud. Yours looks beautiful. Love the purple glass!!!

We do get some snow, but it usually doesn't last very long on the ground. However, one Christmas, 4 years ago, it snowed almost 25 inches over a weeks time...not a good time. We are in a cold spell right now and even our lake has an ice layer. Stay warm and bake! XOXO

Hi, Susan! loved all the pictures, because I do love snow!!Unfortunately, the place where we live in India doesn't have any snow falls, so I try to recollect my native country's's fabulous!
yes, we are lucky to have warm houses and enjoy even the coldest days in its cozy premises.some people don't have this opportunity...
have a great day!

It sure does snow and we had about 4 inches last night!!

I also ran for the camera to take pictures of my outside Winter decorations looking really Wintery with snow on them and around them!!

And I was off the night before so I did not have to drive in it....YIPPEE!!

We actually have some snow predicted for later today, but around here, we don't look for it till we see it coming! I LOVE the purple, and since that's my hubs fave color, I'm not going to show him these pictures! All that snow makes for some lovely scenery, and gives us a chance to stay inside and enjoy some hot chocolate and long as the power doesn't go out!! Have a wonderful day, Susan! :-)

Hi Susan,
We usually always have snow but luckily this year we have had very little --- of course the season isn't over.
I like most people love how pretty fresh snow appears -- but by the second day forget it (ugly, dirty, icy, and a mess). By the way Susan, thanks again for visiting my blog. I visit your blog in the a.m. and start my day happily so now I am both a reader and a follower.

Love the shot of the snow being poured in that beautiful purple glass!

Yes we get snow, but not too much so far. I'm ready for one that makes us stay home:)

Never snowed in Sydney in my lifetime but if it did I'm sure all the neighbourhood would be out in the street checking it out.

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: I live in the north of Spain and never snows. It rains all winter long but not too cold. I love being at home in bad weather but I have to leave for work, children ... The pictures are very beautiful and elegant. Very trendy! . We keep in touch.

The purple with snow is just gorgeous! I love to look at snow!!!

Dee said...

What a lovely day to use your camera.Your snow photo's are beautiful, especially adorned with your glass ware.

If I had snow like that, I'd be at the ready with my camera for sure. No snow in South Florida. This has been a hot winter. Not just warm, hot. But we just had a cool front pass and it's supposed to finally be in the 50's tonight after weeks of 80+ degree highs. It feels wonderful!

Tammy said...

Sending warm wishes your way! It was somewhat sunny this morning for our walk but has progressively gotten more cloudy throughout the day. And feels much colder inside than out. :/ Stay warm and cozy! Tammy
