While You Were Sleeping, Winter Arrived

The season is officially winter now. Winter crept in during the night and now our day light will start increasing again. Here in the northern climes it starts to get dark at 4:30 in the afternoon. It actually doesn't seem like winter yet, no real snow and still warm enough to walk to the mailbox without a coat. We had a few snow flakes today and my spirits lifted for a moment as I saw them drifting down. It didn't last and the brown ground is all around. I stole that rhyme from our local weather guy. Everyone is a little sad. We love snow here, people are flocking to the local ski slopes here where they make their own snow. Last year we had more snow than we knew what to do with. I mean literally, we were running out of room to put snow! Now we've got nothing! So what do we do? Dream a little and think about those past winter's when we had an abundance of the fluffy white stuff. Like the pictures below. Doesn't that look beautiful! Yes, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

  1. No dreaming here - a few days ago they said we wouldn't have any snow this week, and now we've had two storms. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  3. Hi, I'm your newest follower :) I'm in Edmonton, Alberta and LOVE it when everything is white and fluffy under a gorgeous blue sky! We only have a skiff right now - fingers crossed... Great pics.

  4. Your snowy scenes are so lovely. I'm still dreaming of that White Christmas here too but it looks like our holidays are going to be brown. Maybe the new year will bring the glistening snow to our areas.

    Merry Christmas!

  6. Welcome Jane! Thank you all for visiting during this busy week. We are to get an inch or two of snow today and then maybe a dusting on Christmas Day. However temps. are then going to be close to 40 degrees, so it won't last. ~ Diane
