Dashing Thru the Snow
Slip Sliding Away.....Walking in a Winter Wonderland... I know there are many other song titles and first lines I could use for this but in case you haven't figured it out IT IS SNOWING HERE
Okay, the actual snowfall has stopped for now, but we did get some before I got up, there is still sleet falling and there is supposed to be more snow/sleet combination all day.
We were not expected to get any of this since the major part of the system was well to the south of us....and it still is, there are areas 4-6 hours drive south of us that have several inches of snow on the ground.
From the front porch, my car and the houses across the street....while I was out there the youngest boy who lives in the house across the street with no snow on the front yard because of the huge Live Oak tree, went running across his backyard yelling "All Right" and started jumping on their trampoline.
The backyard, since there is a thick layer of ice under the pretty stuff I didn't want to walk out in the yard and take a chance of falling.....
I am hoping my plants in pots (three lavenders, three Rue and two Fennel) are okay after the thaw. I had every intention of bringing them in before the cold weather arrived, but we were gone all day Friday when the rain started and when we got home the rain was coming down an inch every 30 minutes and they were overflowing and heavy by then anyway. Then by Saturday morning when the rain slowed down, the water in the pots was frozen solid. What is above the ground is still green, I will just have to wait until the temp goes above freezing to see what happens.

I still can't understand how we haven't had any snow (well one little flurry yesterday) here in this part of Scotland. Last year at this time everything was white and the snow was at least a foot deep.
It even LOOKS cold, Toni. I'm glad it's you and not me.
I know how she feels am not near as happy about it.Just freezes me to death to look at it.I look outside and just shiver.I do hope your plants are ok.
Strange that MalmÃ¶ have seen no snow either. Are you going to build a snowgnome Toni?
I am glad you are getting your cold weather and snow. I am also very glad we did not get the ice, just the cold.
