LET IT SNOW… January 6, 2017

As most of you know I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to walking in anything less than ideal weather. I don’t like walking it the rain because of my camera, I don’t like the wind because of potential “Widow Makers” and I especially don’t like walking in snow!

As a kid growing up in Nebraska I walked twenty miles, up hill, both ways and in twelve foot snow drifts to school so I’ve had my fill of walking in the snow. OK maybe I exaggerated a little but you get the idea.

This morning I woke to “SNOW”! It was 26 degrees F so the roads were icy and the snow is sticking around for a while. Instead of going out for a nice long walk I poked my nose out the door and took a couple of pictures for you enjoyment. I know in the whole scheme of things it’s not a lot of snow but it’s a rather rare event in my wee town of Coupeville.

This is some of our back yard.

The poor plants in these planters really got beaten down and I’m quite sure they will be dead by spring.

This is the view from our front porch. Like I said it’s not a lot of snow but I have to say it sure is pretty.

With any luck, a little warmer temperatures and some rain it will all be gone by tomorrow and we can go walking again, or not. Have a great week ahead and make it a good one!
