Well, we finally got some snow today!

There were about 4 or 5 inches when we left for church at about 10:00 this a.m.  We needed to go a little bit early as we had a special guest from Oklahoma in the pulpit this a.m. and we wanted to make sure we were there . 

These first two pictures are of our church.  It almost looks black and white, then you notice the green band below the siding. 

I love how the snowflakes look like little balls of light falling out of the sky! 

Church went well - our visitor was a wonderful speaker.

We had to stop in Ferndale at the store because we forgot to get potatoes Friday night - How can you make stew without potatoes??

The freeway was fine, but the back roads to our house were a little bit sketchy - sloppy and slippery!  

And this is what greeted us when we got to our drive way... that's about 10 inches of snow in front of that gate. 

So, luckily The Shepherd had brought a shovel with us - he had to dig out the driveway so we could get in to the house! 

After getting more snow this afternoon & evening there is about a foot of snow on our dumpster now. 

Bella was very interested in something that was happening outside the window.  S/he got way up on the window sill, tail twitching -

This is all she could see - I don't know if there was maybe a "burdie" in the tree, of if it was just the falling snow flakes that were getting her attention.

Out the front door -

and "plink" down over the edge of the deck.  That's George who just went over  the edge (tip of his tail, center of the picture)  - We couldn't get Gracie off of the big bed for love nor money. 

The forecast from my little "weather machine"  - although says it will be 48 degrees by Tuesday! 

The Shepherd took this picture out in the pasture when he did chores this evening - the little wires that the snow is perched on are only 1/4 inch in diameter - how's that work? 

We hope you are all in a nice cozy place this evening!

Your pictures are beautiful. I love looking at snow pictures - as long as it isn't in my yard. ha ha Your kitty is so cute in that window. Mario doesn't bother to watch the snow anymore - he's seen so much of it in his lifetime that it's just another thing falling from the sky.
