Christmas Snow!

Snow is not very common in this region and when it does snow, it is often alot of hype for accumulation that would have the kids still going to school in the North. BUT this time it was different. Predictions grew from 3 to 5 to 6 to 7 and more...funny how weather forecasting works.

The snow started at 9PM Christmas night, and at 11PM on December 26 it was still snowing lightly. My last measurement before bed was 14 7/8 inches by my trusty quilting ruler. The third largest snowfall in this area.
The birds were nuts at the feeders....we refilled three times during the day. Guess we were the only show in town.

It was the kind of snow that stuck to everything....even my husband's eyelashes :)

Morning glory vine and seed....

A day to laze around and dream of warmer hammock laying days...and things to plant in the garden.
