A View From the Front Porch

Yesterday afternoon we received more snow and this was the view from my front porch as the heavy snow was coming down.
This morning we awoke to a bit of sunshine and a fresh blanket of almost three inches of the white stuff.

Yet another snow day for the chiclets and I. We are now approaching double digits in terms of snow days. Not a good sign as we still have quite a bit more winter to go.


Bitterly cold temps mean that even the dogs don't want to venture outdoors.

A bit of baking, laundry and some time with the Kindle today.
Stay warm my friends!

  1. It's great you have a view like that from your front porch. Enjoy your snow day--I think my kids would be jealous, we've had all the snow and none of the time off!

  2. I know it adds a lot of extra work, but it's so, so beautiful... x

  3. We had a little bit of the white stuff last night. It was just enough to give us a two hour delay. They are calling for more snow here Sunday into Monday. I hope it's like last night...I like starting my day at 8a instead of 6a.

    Enjoy your long weekend!

  8. texwisgirl - We missed school last year due to snow and the flu. Had to make a day on a Saturday (seriously) and still went into June. No fun.

  11. That's a LOT of snow days! Man, what a wacky winter we've all had. It's 4 degrees out right now with a windchill of -10. Yikes! I really don't want to venture out!

  12. Your yard and fields look exactly like mine. The sun on the snow today makes it hard to look outside without your sunglasses.

    Stay warm, spring will be here soon.

  13. What are you baking? I may come over! I do have an ETSY shop and I am currently working to restock. I will post when the store is stocked.

  14. Hey, chick. We, too, are off today. I think this may be day 8 for us altogether, so we have 5 more to go before we have to start making them up. And, like you said, we still have a lot of winter yet to go.

  15. I have a terrace but the view is not so nice and I would like a porch with some space around... I could even get some snow on it!

  16. My attitude has changed! I was starting to hate the white stuff, but tomorrow, I pick up my new snowblower (it came in early) and I can take my revenge!
    Just kidding. Us farmers need the moisture!
    Stay warm.

  17. You too stay warm!!! It was -9 this morning and I think we might make it to 8 above before the sun goes all the way down. YUCK. I'm ready for spring.

  18. I promised myself to spend more of my 5-kid's inheritance when the iPad2 comes out. I want one of them. I want to experience reading some of the online newspapers then with that. I wonder how the webpages and FB will look?

    It was very cold here today. It was
    -2º when I got up and this evening it is 10º.

  19. You have a wonderful view out the back door. I like the line hanging from the tree, but I do believe it is supposed to have an old tire swing hanging from it.

  20. Did you read "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett? I'm enjoying it very much. I'm also reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver--really fascinating!

  21. Farmchick -- It is very cold tonight in Central Kentucky -- got stuck on the slick ice coming up my hill to my home tonight. My son and neighbor came to the rescue -- thankfully. Stay warm in front of your fireplace!

  35. Hmmm - 3" = a snow day ? Better not let the kids up north hear that - they'd be off school most of the winter ;-)

    But - beautiful shots - I love a blanket of fresh snow - in photos !

  36. We had about 8" that hung around for about a week. Missed three school days so far. It's just not something SC is used to. LOL
