Winter!posted by Andrea | 01/28/2013
We FINALLY got snow last week — and Dave got his first snow day of the year!
It sure looks pretty, doesn’t it?
I’m thankful that aside from a few brief sledding episodes each day, Nora and I are able to stay inside — because it. is. cold!
Where we live, we got over 14″ in just a couple of days (this picture of our driveway is after Dave plowed several times!)
However, since it’s supposed to be in the 50’s again tomorrow (seriously, West Michigan has crazy lake-effect weather!) I figured I better share some pictures of how pretty our farmhouse looks with all this beautiful, clean, white snow.
I took this picture of our back yard…
And then I edited it a bit…
I’m using it as my computer background image right now 🙂
I think one thing I love about a thick, fresh snowfall is that it makes everything look lovely again — the dead spots and weeds in our lawn, the overgrown bushes in front of our house, the dying pine tree behind our outbuilding, the perennials I never cut back, the pile of wood scraps waiting to be burned (still from our kitchen renovation), the dirty siding on the North side of our house — it’s all nearly invisible when covered with fluffy white snow!
Hmmm… I wonder if there’s a way to achieve a similar effect inside 🙂
So even though we aren’t exactly snow lovers, we are enjoying the snow while it lasts — which is probably until tomorrow afternoon!
