Big Fluffy Puffy Snow



As promised, we are once again being dumped on. No one will commit to how much snow we are to receive by Tuesday evening and they're saying it may possibly continue into Wednesday. Earlier, the news reported that just an hour away from here, it was snowing at the rate of more than five inches an hour.

I looked out the window, and sure enough, it was coming right down. I could do nothing else but go out in it and try to capture some images of the enchanting fluffiness, even though it was dark. I turned on the outside lights and took these photos without a flash, which accounts for some of the blurriness.







Few things in this world have the power to transform the landscape and how we feel when we see it and touch it and play in it, more than snow. As much as I am ardently wishing for winter to be over because it's been such a long one this year, I am so glad I live where I can experience snow every winter.

It looks lovely Kylee, all white and fluffy and new and sparkly. Wish we had snow here every year.

I am with you Kylee. Even though I am sick of winter I like the changes of the season. When I don't have anyplace I have to go, like to work, I don't mind snow and other inclement conditions. I just sit at home and dream. You don't get that as soon as the weather warms. Of course ask me another day and I will be climbing the walls to get out.

Your photos make the snow look so benign, not threatening humans as they try and travel by auto or foot. It is so fluffy it doesn't even look cold! You could be the snow's PR rep. ;->

We had the largest snowflakes I've ever seen tonight. My daughter said they looked like tissues falling.

Your snow images are beautiful. Snow is magical when it is falling.

That little tree looks absolutely gorgeous clothed in snow. Wonderful pictures.

Nice snow pics! let us know how much you get. We are at the messy, dirty snow piles stage of winter. I vote winter only lasts one month. What do you think?

Barbara said...

Ut does look pretty, especially with the lights.

That's the sort of snow we had a week ago and it just transforms everything into a winter wonderland. Great shots!

Very pretty photos. Snow is great to look at but not fun to deal with. Shoveling and driving make snow not so fun. Me and my husband moved from a state that had a lot of snow every winter to city in a state that rarely ever gets snow or much of a winter. I'm not fussing besides not seeing it. My husband misses the snow.

We are getting it now. It is very heavy and wet here, but still beautiful. Enjoyed your pictures!

Pam/Digging said...

Truly, a winter wonderland with those twinkle lights glowing. I'm curious about that little tree under the arbor. What is it, and will it stay small enough to fit under there?

Kylee, we are on the very south edge of this snow. And yes it is pretty, but the wind is picking up and you know what that means..no getting out today!

Matron said...

Beautiful pictures! I love the way the light catches the snow on the branches.

Kylee said...

Thank you everyone, and I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. I enjoy looking at them, too! The wind has blown all the snow off the trees now, but because the snow is so wet, there probably won't be a great deal of drifting, which is a good thing.

The official snow tally for my county is 6.5" but it always seems like the official amount is less. It's still a lot of snow!

Pam, that tree is a dogwood that we've had for over 15 years in that spot. It hasn't grown much at all, probably due to its location at the edge of the drip line of two large oak trees. It's in shade most of the day. We love that it stays that size, because of the pergola over the patio.
