Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

The only news here in Hartwood is the weather.  It started to snow last night at about 6:00 ... we have more than a foot of snow on the ground right now, and we may double that total before it's all finished late tonight or early tomorrow morning.  

Here are a few wintery snapshots.

My grandson and I went out to see if we could use a boogie board as a sled ... nope.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  I'll get out the plastic snow saucers when we go back out later.

Letting the dogs out has been a challenge.  I am working to keep a path on the deck and steps shoveled and swept, so the dogs can go out the way they're used to. 

It's hard for Emma to do her 'business' when the snow is halfway up her thighs. 

Here are a couple of images from the garden.  There will be more, I promise.  I didn't want to keep my camera outside in the blowing snow any longer than I had to.

A snowy hip on New Dawn.

A freeze-dried flower on Irish Gold.

I don't mind this storm at all.  I'm here with just myself and the grandson.  I don't have to go out, since we have plenty of food and supplies.  I know how to start the generator if I need to.   Most of my Christmas shopping is finished, the tree is decorated, and I have a pot of soup simmering on the stove.  It's a lovely snowy day, and I hope to enjoy it while it lasts.

  1. Your pictures look great. Sounds like you have everything covered so you can enjoy the snow and your grandchild. I hope Emma was not embarassed that you took a shot of her private moment.

  2. What fun to be snowed in with your grandson! And that shot of the freeze dried rose with snow nestled in it is beautiful!
