2012/361 – Bonus: Snow!

I was dreaming of a white Christmas, and my dream came true….well, close enough anyway 😉

It started out as pouring rain on Christmas morning. Temperatures were around 44 F when we left for Oklahoma to spend Christmas with family, and fell to about freezing. The rain slowly turned to snow during the drive north, and by the time we reached Greg’s brother’s house, it was all sleet and very windy and cold.
We left a little sooner than planned to go back home, because the weather continued to get worse, and the drive from Durant to Dallas took us three hours instead of the normal hour an a half. We saw plenty of cars spun out in the median because they refused to slow down. (Every car that passed us going much to fast, I waved to and said “see you in the ditch!” LOL)
Our little town got enough snow to cover the grass completely and it looked so pretty, even in the dark. This morning I could barely wait for the sun to come up so I could bundle up and introduce my iPhone to the snow.
I think my next purchase will be “texting gloves” to keep my hands warm and still be able to use my iPhone. Two more minutes in the cold, and you could have snapped my fingers off like icicles 😉

  1. 12/27/12, Beautiful snow, the likes of which I haven’t seen since I was a kid. As long as you don’t have to travel in it, enjoy & worry about the iPhone later.

  2. So pretty! There was 4 inches on the ground when I went to bed last night and this morning it’s turned to pouring rain and slush. 😦

  4. Very pretty – and what a treat for you! As Becky mentioned, we HAD a pretty blanket last night but the rain is washing it away right now, so no chance for pretty pictures here.

  5. Tis a wonderful bonus, indeed, Michaela. I am glad you got some of the beautiful white stuff that your heart loves so much. And you portrayed the beauty so—beautifully!
