Southern Snowfall

A wonderland of winter fell upon us last week, which does not happen very often here in the Deep South.  {The experts say it happens about every 1,000 days.}

Fortunately for me and my family, we were safely at home and not on the roads, staying warm and patiently 
waiting 
and 
waiting 
and 
waiting 
for the snow that was promised to us.  
{I thought it was going to pass us by and go straight up to the North.}

School cancelled and all day, no snow...

And then at dark, skyfall.

At first just a few snowflakes sprinkled down from the sky...


And then some more...




And it did not stop until morning, when we awoke to our home and the town in a blanket of beautiful, sparkling white powder!


We played.



I made photographs.


{Our winter garden so much prettier under a blanket of glistening snowflakes.}





Guss {our Cavapoo} romped.



We made snow cones.


It was our winter wonderland for a few days.  




Beautiful.


And yesterday the Groundhog said that we are going to have six more weeks of winter.  We've already had the coldest January on record...is more snow on the way?  I've heard rumours.

Stay warm!

Ciao amici,
