Suzy Snowflake...Where Are You?

We had a forecast for a little bit of snow this weekend. I confess what I really wanted was what you see in this photograph. Just enough snow for the kids and dogs to enjoy.
And, this is what I received.

Barely a few flakes on the back deck steps. Bitterly cold temperatures are forecast for this coming week. But, not a snowflake in sight.

*sigh*

  4. Sorry you didn't get more snow. A nice snow would have made it seem more like Christmas. We got just a light dusting - not enough to cover the ground.

  6. That top photo is so cute! Dogs (and kids) get so joyous in the snow! But alas. Not to be for you this weekend. But you have a couple months left of weather forecasts to be hopeful! :)

  7. We only got a dusting also. I was hoping for a few inches too. Like getting the snow pics on my camera traps.

  10. I know what you mean -- the anticipation and then just a little frost. But it will come. Black clouds are lining up here so maybe they will travel east.--Inger

  12. Ian - That is my Border Collie and she is one smart chick. And, I would love "some" of your snow!

  13. Love your border collie-so pretty. I know how dissapointing it is when you don’t get that snow and you want it. We got lucky this weekend and did get a beautiful snow--but not on the roads--perfect kind :)

  14. LOVE your picture! We had about 5 inches!

    Here comes Suzy Snowflake;
    Look at here falling down.
    Tap tap tapping on the window pane;
    Suzy's come to town.

    My mom used to sing that song to me all the time. Thanks for the memory! I had forgotten it!

  15. There's much good to be found beneath the white of snow. It might just take a while.

    Over here, still above 60F during midday. Making it difficult to obtain "Christmas mood". Please have you all a good new week.

  16. Unlike CatHerder, we are ready for the snow. Unfortunately they have forecasted a pretty dry winter for us this year. We can hope for the moisture.

  17. For this you can live in North Florida (smile) Lots of bitter cold temps and not a flake of snow. Don't worry, I have no doubt before this winter is over, you will have plenty of snow for the dogs and kids to play in-

  19. We love snow up here in WI and were glad to get some 6-7" on Friday. I was out snowshoeing with the dogs today. One pup (our Yorkie) hates it and the other, a schnoodle, adores the snow. He's my little snowshoe buddy.

    I hope you get some snow soon. It's just not winter without it.

  20. Love snow, not the bitter cold. It's OK without the wind, but we are rarely without wind in Nebraska.

    Love your dog! Can't wait to show our new puppy her first real snow.

  21. what a beautiful dog. wish we have some snow in our country to enjoy. hope your week is off to a good start.

  22. It's too early for us to be having snow. I think we had 2-3 inches, and the high this week is like 18 degrees. I hate it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. While snow is rare here, I guess you will have you fair share of snow flakes quite soon!

  24. We had our first snow in December since 1958... something tells me there will be lots more where that came from.

  25. In my book, minimal snow equals "lucky!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh NO! I know that feeling:(
    Well...2 ideas...you can sweep up all the skiff(s) of snow into one big pile....OR....come take some of mine:)))
    I so love your photos!

  27. Farmchick -- Like your wreath hanging on your wood fence post -- very picturesque. Today in central KY we are getting lots of snow flurries and wind -- temp 19 degrees. It really is pretty though. -- barbara

  28. Bummer! We rarely get snow and I get SOOO excited at the prospect. I like the new header! I sure wish I lived on a farm.... :)

  29. Be careful what you wish for. I'll send ya some in a month. hahaha

  30. Oh! I hope you get the snow you want! *and it misses us entirely this year*...

  31. We got a ton of rain here yesterday, but it was not very cold so not much snow in the mountains behind my house. My older son and I are heading up there this week to snowboard, so hopefully there will be new powder. Toots is adorable...I like her decorations in her room...my sons always set up a small tree and manger in their room when they were small.

  34. You can have some of the snow we have here in Utah. :) I hope you at least get a little more snow so you can have a white Christmas.

  35. I hope the snow holds off as long as possible,but a dusting is pretty!

  36. I like to see a little snow too. I like to see it coming down. I like it when what it does, the local weather calls it 'snow showers.'

    Love the dog in the snow. My favorite of all time.

  38. WE got 2 or 3 inches a few days ago. It is so cold here, too. I don't like it getting so cold so soon in the season.

  39. Well, I'm late getting here, but I know by now that you have plenty of the white stuff.
