Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful...


But the fire is so delightful...


And since we've no place to go...


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.




We got our first snow of the season this past weekend!


Waking up to snow is such a treat. Especially when you have a mug of something warm in hand. 


Our dog Ozzie spent the day sniffing through the drift and chasing snowballs.


Soon he was joined by a friend. 


The next morning the sun broke through the clouds, creating a cheerful winter wonderland.



Truly, this is the most wonderful time of the year.

Nel, what a beautiful post and your photos are absolutely stunning! Wasn't that snow something else?? We only got about an inch accumulation but it snowed all day but you all farther south got so much more! My son has a dog that looks just like yours. Is it a Carolina Dog?

Beautiful. I wish it would snow here but the 10day forecast has us in the 70's and socked in with sunshine. It did get down into the 30's as a low.
