It snowed!!! Or did it???

I woke up to a cold dark morning ... I turned on the TV, and the weatherman said "snow!" The roving reporters stationed about the city (of which I am not a resident, but live somewhat south of) were excitedly showing off their "Live" shots of the white stuff ... several roads were closed!

I couldn't wait for daybreak, a chance to go play.
I made a fire, and a pot of coffee; and waited.

Slowly the dark unfolded into light.
I ran outside with my camera.

Where was the snow?
I couldn't find it!!!
I ventured further - to the end of the driveway.
On one small landscape board - FINALLY - some snow.

The cats had already found this tiny pristine piece of white ...
and left their paw print heart.

As it turned out, it did indeed snow. The small hill just behind the house is white with it.
Just not here!
Maybe next year.

  1. I'm so glad that it keeps missing us other than dustings. I could handle winters like this every year.

  2. Of course the kitties left a heart print for you! Yeah...I know. The lack of snow this winter has been (sigh) discouraging. If it's going to be this cold--let it snow! Alas, grey and rainy days upon end has been our lot this winter.
