A Good Day to be Indoors

I am so grateful to be safe and warm indoors today. I feel like a little girl again, snowed in on a cancelled school day. Here's hoping all local commuters are driving safely.

Meanwhile, I couldn't resist pulling out my camera.

  2. How lovely! Thanks for getting your camera out. It's just grey and dull over here - not Chrissmassy at all :( Stay safe and enjoy the beauty.

  3. Ohhhh, looks so beautiful. We may or may not have snow here. Lately, the weather people predict big storms that often do not materialize. We're supposed to get one to four inches that won't stay around long, so I'm hoping!! Enjoy your snow day!

  4. How pretty. We haven't had 'proper snow' down here for years. About time we had some - I can't wait to slide down a slope on a tea tray!

    1. It's definitely best viewed from indoors. ~grin~ I had to drive yesterday while it melted and created icy roads and foggy conditions. Not fun. But I'm tucked indoors today while the cold returned with some flurries. Be well!

  7. I love the look of snow, if not the actuality! Here in the South West of England, we don't get snow that often so it's quite an occasion when we do!

    1. It's definitely preferable to view snow from a safe vantage, even if I'm out in it shoveling or building a snowman. ~grin~ Thank you for stopping in. It's fascinating to me what types of weather folks get at various locations. Be well!

  8. The snow always has me running for the camera only in Nashville TN we don't get enough to really enjoy. Yours is pretty for sure.

  10. Oh, goodness! Here in western Oregon, the movement of people also came to a crawl, but it was an ice storm that made normal life impossible rather than snow.

    1. Ice storms can be brutal. No wonder you dislike winter. I hope you stay safe!

    2. Here in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, ice storms are uncommon and snow that accumulates is rare. What we do get are gray skies and drizzle almost everyday for months. I’m from Mississippi where winter was the only time of the year when it wasn’t blazing hot, although I did spend two winters in Minneapolis where it got so cold that I was incredulous that anyone actually lived there, yet Minneapolis was called Minnesota’s Banana Belt to contrast its cold with the cold further north where the nation’s records are often set.

    3. That's fascinating! I'm sorry for the miserable weather. It makes me appreciate Ohio's Miami Valley that much more. We term it "Sinus Valley" because of the high rate of allergens but the weather's extremes are not that bad in light of this information.

    4. The Willamette Valley is the nation's leading producer of turf and grass seeds, so it's really bad here for people who are allergic to grass as is my wife, Peggy. Until a few years ago, the grass growers would burn the fields after the harvest to kill diseases, but so many people’s allergies went crazy that there is now a law against it.
