#SoCS & #JusJoJan 4/20 – Snow

21 Comments

We had our first snowfall of the year today. Until I moved to this town eight? nine? years ago, I’d seen one green Christmas in my entire life. I’ve lost count of how many we’ve had here. This last one passed without notice.

But now it’s all nice and white and fluffy. I went for a long walk with Alex this morning and am about to go on another one–it’s such a beautiful day out there!

There seems to be no end in sight for the snow now that it’s started. I hope Alex goes back to school on Monday, sans snow days. It’s been a loooong two weeks with no break from the caregiving job.

Here are some pictures and a video from today.

It’s amazing how much fluffy snow can accumulate on a tiny twig of a branch. There was no wind, so it stayed until it was too heavy and fell off.

I love my neighbourhood. Here’s a quiet garden surrounded by a wrought-iron fence and huge old red-brick houses. It’s closed off this time of year, probably to protect the roses. The steel benches would be too cold to sit on anyway!

A short video of the snow falling in the trees. I thought about how quiet it was until Alex started talking to his computer in the background. I was standing outside in my slippers with the door open when I took the video. Sorry about the size of the video. There doesn’t seem to be any way to make it smaller.

What’s the weather like where you are? So horrific what’s going on in Australia … I hope all of my readers from there are safe and not too hot.

  1. Sunny and warmish, here where snow is rare. I do love snow, the quiet it brings – especially at night. I’m glad you’re enjoying your snow.

  2. Here on my sofa, the weather’s about 20 to you and there’s no wind. Outside, it’s about 5 to you, and partly sunny. No snow, blue skies off and on. Pretty video is pretty. You know I do so love the snow, but we’ll have plenty and I’ll be patient.
    I hope for no snow days for Alex, too.

  3. We are finally back to seasonable weather after a couple of weeks of warmer than usual weather when we lost all the snow that fell in a long cold period before that. We only have a dusting of snow on the ground, but I’m hoping more will be on the way soon. Your photos are beautiful.
