That Four Letter Word

View from my front porch, about the same time last year.  

We might, just might, receive some snow tonight.  It has some people bent all out of shape as our local school superintendent has already placed an, "all call", to all students stating there will be school tomorrow.  

Funny how a little bit of predicted snow can have such an effect on people.  In an area like mine, with crazy country backroads, it can be quite the problem.  

Me?  Well, I am hoping we receive the predicted amount.  

It's about time, I think......

  1. Snow sure does scare some people. And some people not enough, as they drive crazily no matter what the weather. Just saying!

  9. Good luck getting some snow.
    One of my favorite reasons for loving snow is
    how it quiets things down. You know?
    (...and makes the world beautiful.)
    Send us some pics . . .

  12. I could have written your post, Michelle! It's the same way around here...some folks are scared to death of it and if you can find milk and bread on the shelves, you are beyond lucky! Tell me...when it snows, do you make milk toast too?? That's what folks seem to do around here since that's what they go after...lol! I am ready for some so send it on down!

  17. Such a lovely image - Snow has this incredible effect on us - activating all those memories from childhood, and cheering up just by lighting the landscape up in a wonderful way. I cross my fingers that you'd get some snow!

  23. It's very pretty, but I hate driving in it. We got 8 inches between 9 last night and noon today. Everything was cancelled and more snow is on the way.

  24. I think that is my favorite picture. And that is saying something because I can't stand snow.

  25. You know, I think the reaction to snow has changed over the years. When I was a kid growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, we'd have a foot of snow and they'd get the plows out there at o-dark-thirty and we'd still have to go to school. I heard on the radio today, that a district near Chicago closed their schools down for 3 inches of snow! My jaw honestly dropped at that one.

  26. Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

  32. Beautiful snow scene-I have some great memories of snow filled days as a youngster!

  33. Your snow looks so pretty! OUrs is heaped on the sides of the roads and brown.. or yellow...
    I think we need another inch to put a fresh coat on things, but I did NOT say that.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Smile!!!! It is about time! The temperatures have at last dropped a bit here but I'm not sure we'll see any of the fluffy stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Beautiful. I love looking at snow.

  36. We had about 3 inches here in Nashua, NH last evening and it was enough for our first snow shoeing excursion today. Hope you get some of that four letter word white stuff too, Michelle.

  37. The quote is perfect! I still love snow days. Someone said of our new house that we live in an area plowed last in Waukesha County. I'm liking it!

  39. We finally got a bit of snow - it's the weirdest winter! I love it - the snow 'cleans' everything up nicely and it's so bright out with all that white around!

  41. The first hint on snow here now closes schools. I remember going to school with snow chains on the buses. They were like mini tanks.
