Snow!

This is what our home looked like on Christmas Eve. Typically, the snow will just starting piling up now until the spring.

We went downtown that evening because there was a choir singing on the town square and, on our way back home… another pic!

How could anybody not love this climate? šŸ™‚

  1. This is a beautiful photo of Ray and his human! Your home looked ready to celebrate, so inviting. We are preparing to be inundated with snow tomorrow from Winter Storm Grayson. I love everything about snow…except the shoveling these days. Thank-you for sharing your wonderful photos.

  2. We had some sleet today at breakfast and the children outside the restaurant were trying to scrape the ice of the windshield wipers of a car and make a snowman on the hood. Closest we get to snow here in Alvin, Texas on the Texas Gulf Coast. I am from Virginia and miss making snow cream with fresh snow and Eagle Brand condensed milk. Even my husband’s dog loved it in his dishpan leftovers. The next time it snowed, Tippy ran around sampling various parts of the yard, looking for the sweet part.

        • Hmmmm Rae. It is my understanding that the airborne pollutants are “collected” by the snow while it is being formed, and on its way down. It just looks cleaner underneath because it has been protected from surface particles, snow melt chemicals etc. On a positive (?) note, apparently pollutant levels are extremely low… however:
          “Parisa Ariya of Canada’s McGill University recently told the Huffington Post. She was the lead researcher on a 2016 paper that found falling snow can soak up unsavory chemicals from gasoline exhaust in the air, like toluene, xylenes and benzene, a known carcinogen.”

  3. *hand up and waving* Me, me! I hate the cold, and would only like the snow if I could play in it without the cold. Didn’t mind it as a child growing up in Pennsylvania, but now all I want is the warm sunshine (and a beach, if possible, please).

  4. It looks cozy with the snow, but I’m not in for these temperatures, that is too cold. Seven years ago, we had -25 C. in Denmark and that was terrible cold. I appreciate the more mild temperatures, where I live now in Spain.

  5. Two lovely photographs Ray. It’s about 6 centigrade in west Scotland today but quite a stiff wind. Hot soup is the order of the day. I was in Salmon Arm some winters ago so I .appreciate how cold it can get.

  6. As I sit here in my tee shirt in our lounge, it’s raining outside and temperatures are around 5 degrees C (41 F). We haven’t had snow like that since 2008 Colin. Very impressive (but I don;t want to share thank you) šŸ™‚
