Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

So this is how it started earlier today - coming a little earlier than we had anticipated. At first it was very light flurries you can hardly see and I really didn't think it would do anything. It wasn't long before it started looking like this and pretty much stayed the same for awhile. Of course the first thing BigD asks (always) is, "what do you want to eat for dinner tonight" and I didn't hesitate - homemade vegetable beef soup. Whenever it snows, we usually have homemade soup with peanut butter and honey sandwiches and talk about how good the food was when we were in elementary school back in the day. We had ladies who wore hair-nets and cooked real food. We could smell the food down the hallways and always knew when we smelled soup, we would also have peanut butter and honey sandwiches. YUM. I called Ruth to see how she was "coping" with the weather and she really doesn't like it! I told her I sure was hoping the undershirts she bought this week were keeping her warm. She didn't think it was funny at all. Guess when you have lived in Florida for so long, your blood gets thinner and the cold feels colder. Poor baby....BigD took a nap and then went to the store to pick up a few things including the meat for the soup. When he got home, he said the store wasn't crowded and the roads are clear as you can see in the pictures.I love looking at the snow on trees. I tried to get the ones across the road but had on my bedroom shoes and decidedto just catch one of the "mutant holly tree" beside the house. BigD and I have talked about how we need to cut all the little trees sprouting up at its base soon. People used to drive up and ask if they could pull one of those from the ground and try to plant it for themselves.I know they have gotten some snow where Kurt and Leah are but haven't heard from Page and Bentley yet to see if it is snowing there. I did speak to Mae who is still at the beach with Lynn and she said they have seen a few flurries and they are calling for flurries mixed with sleet. I guess winter has come a little earlier this year.


  1. hi Jane :)
    thanks for stopping by. I tried to convert into north American measurements, and added them to the blog post.
    So neat that you got snow ... so few chance to get some here in southern France :(

  2. We got 2 inches here! It's sadly melting away quicker than I wanted it to. I didn't get any pictures of the house pretty and white. I'm hoping we'll get many more snow days this year.
