Yes, We Got Snow!


We finally got a snow storm in the northern Shenandoah Vally. It seemed odd because Tuesday was a warm day that promised spring was coming, yet that night the snow started falling.

We got between 6 and 8 inches in our yard. Temperatures edged up during the afternoon and the snow started melting.

I took these pictures around mid-day when Benny and I went out to get the mail.
The family across the road built this snowman. He reminds me of the "grinch."
This boy loves his to ride his vehicle and today it served as his snowmobile.

  3. Looks so nice when the snow falls, why does it do it at night when we miss seeing it though, lol. Love your photos as always.

  4. That really does look like the smile of the grinch. I don't think your spaniel likes snow very much! But what a fun day!
