The Snow Has Arrived

There is no doubt,but that winter has arrived.The temperatures have dropped and the snow has blanketed everything. All the pictures today are taken with my iPhone.

This is what I see when I look out on my back yard.This picture was taken on Tuesday,December 3rd.Not very much snow had fallen yet,but it is a start.


This morning,December 5th,we have a good blanket of snow. This is my backyard.No need to mow lawn or pull weeds now.


Just so you can get a feel for how much snow has come down in the last couple of days,here is a close-up of the railing on my deck.I have not measured but would guess about 4 inches.
I know I should probably take the snow of the railing,but I like how this looks.

In this shot I have zoomed back some,still showing the amount of snow,but also another part of my yard.

 I like to take some fun pictures and this is one of them.Since I had been in and out of the house a few times the window in the door had become frosted up.As the sun was coming a little higher,I thought it looked pretty through the frosted glass.

With all this snow,I am getting my exercise by keeping the deck,car and part of the driveway cleared.I do have someone to come with a front-end loader to clear most of the driveway,as needed.
I do like how fresh and clean everything looks with a new blanket of snow.

  2. I like the last photo too! The frosty glass adds a lot of mood. We got dumped on the other night with about 10 inches of snow. It's already 22 below this evening.

  6. That is the wonder of snow, it covers every blemish with a virginal bridal veil. I love the way you instantly know by the change in the light that there must have been a decent snowfall during the night and no matter how old we are, there is always the thrill of the first snowfall.
    Lovely shots Ruth. I too would have left the snow on the railing.

  7. The sun through the frosted glass is just beautiful. To me, the way the lamp post is with all the foggy frost, it reminds me of a Charles Dickens look.

  8. So pretty there. I'm pretty positive that you all know how to maneuver around in this kind of stuff....Here in Texas, the entire state would be shut down with this much snow. Enjoy it for me...

    hugs..

  10. Oh, you beat us, Ruth. We're expecting our first measurable snowfall of the season tonight and tomorrow...only 1-3 inches, though. Your snow photos are beautiful, and I love the one of the sun through the frosted glass.

  19. Thank you for sharing your snow; we'll likely not see any. It really is beautiful and pristine. I could look out your windows all day long. Sigh.
