Just when I was thinking spring was almost here . . . it started snowing! The weather forecasters had been calling for a few flurries on Saturday morning and again for Sunday, but no accumulations were mentioned. In fact, both days turned out to be beautiful and sunny, although very cold. Then yesterday afternoon, about 3:30, I went to lie down for a short nap before church. I glanced out our bedroom window and remarked to Wes that it was snowing - sweet little fluffy flakes just gently falling down. When I woke up an hour later, the evergreen trees in the back yard had a light coating of snow on them! As we got ready for church, the snow tapered off again, but on the way there, the snowflakes got huge, the size of silver dollars! And they were coming down in gallons. It was absolutely beautiful! I don't think I've ever been in snowflakes that big and that heavy. It snowed the entire time we were in church, just one hour, and had covered all the cars and grass in about 2 inches of snow - in one hour!
The sun came out just in time to set and give us a gorgeous picture of the snow in rosy golds and pinks. Then the sky cleared, the wind stilled, and the trees covered in snow in the street lights were just beautiful. I know I keep using that word over and over, but that's the only word I have for it! We went to bed with no snow falling, but more fell overnight. It's just now stopped snowing and the sun is peeking through the clouds. We rarely get sunshine in the winter, but to have it shine on the snow, through the trees, is . . . well, beautiful! A treat, for sure.
That's out unexpected treat today - flurries that managed to give us about 3-4 inches of snow! LOL We're enjoying looking at it, but I really do hope that spring isn't far away. I even dreamed last night that a friend needed me to fly to Florida with her. Wes said that was my reaction to the snow! LOL
I hope you all have a great day, and that you're enjoying this day that the Lord has made!
