Excuse my excitement, but around these parts we don't see much SNOW. We will get an occasional flurry during the winter, but not the snowman building, covers the ground in a blanket of white inches, beautiful, beautiful snow. Last real snow we had was 3 years ago? Most of the time we just get ice and slush, nothing fun at all.
But the weather men and women have been building our hopes up all week. Everyone has been to Wally World at least twice for water, milk and bread. Generators have been tested, wood stoves cleaned out and firewood gathered. We were suppose to have big fluffy snow by noon on Sunday...
The weatherman didn't lie, for as I left the church building, the snow was falling and it was BEAUTIFUL. We had just sang "Revelation Song" not 30 minutes before and here I was standing in a beautiful parking lot of white. Didn't even know a parking lot could be so beautiful. All I could think about as I saw the white covered ground, was "He washes us white as snow..." How beautiful is that thought?
We were all excited, even my hubby. Of course, we had to go out and play. And of course mom had to bring the camera...
After about thirty minutes of picture fun, this mom thought the family dog was the smart one of the house. It is COLD out there people!!! Kevin and the kids took the four wheeler down the road to "play" with the neighbors, while I'm catching up in blogland, heating the water for hot tea and hot chocolate and baking muffins for a warm snack for their arrival home.
I hope it stays beautiful and the weather doesn't cause too many problems around town with the roads and electricity, because it has been a Fun day. It is looking like we all will have a free day tomorrow too. :)
Happy Winter, friends! God is good.
