I know you in snow country are probably laughing at us and our little dusting of snow. We just can't help being so excited about it.
Today it is still there (it is 42 outside) and I find so much joy looking out the windows at the hills while doing dishes. It seems so strange to have my view look so different and also so beautiful.
Most of these pictures were taken from our master bedroom window.
When the boys went out to get in their car for school they had no idea how to get all the ice off of it. The doors were frozen shut. This made me laugh as they collected warm water to pour over the doors and windows so they could get to school. I had to explain to them that people who live in area's where it snows all the time have tools in their car to help with ice removal, etc.. They thought it was way to much work. The much prefer the hop in and roll approach they are used to. lol.
My sister who lives in the local mountains about 90 minutes from us got 4 feet of snow and they were snowed in with no power or heat for a few days. Definitely a little un-nerving for them as they are not used to that kind of extreme weather.
Remember, us Californians are a little wimpy in the "severe" weather area. We really have no idea how to deal with it.
Another storm is suppose to move in tomorrow. We are all so excited. However, it is for casted to be 70 degrees on Christmas day. That makes me a little sad.
Enjoy your day my friends. I'm off to stare at the snow while it lasts.
