It did snow!!!

Friends, thank you for the comments on yesterday's post...I did reply to those who don't have blogs.

Now I know you folks who have lived with snow since sometime last fall, have no desire to look at snow pictures but...

these are some pretty serious snow pictures. :) 
especially for this area of North Carolina... and how about this Carolina blue sky!
usually a winter storm here means ice on the trees and power lines...
what we had here were beautiful soft white snow blossoms covering the trees...
Then very early this morning, before any of the neighbors were even up, Poppy, Eli, Weetie, Smokey, and I ventured out...
My gosh! No wonder the power went out at the edge of dark last night and was out until 3:43 this morning. I know the exact time it came on because was lying awake listening to the generator run. 
We started on our usual walk up to the highway. Eli was in heaven...



and that  black dot you see lagging behind is Smokey...
 "Come on Smoke". This is where I picked him up and carried in my arms for a ways, warming his little feet.

Snowfall across the new cut over...

and cutest of all...
oh wait, here it is...
Smokey! and I feel terrible that not one picture shows our little Weetie.

"Miss Independent", our little Weetie. In and out every path and trail along the way. We always make sure us still with us though. 

Hope you will forgive me for posting this many snow pictures. Believe me, I want spring!!! Give me warm weather over cold any time!!!

Thank you for putting up with all this,

Love,
Henny




I promise, no more! :)

  1. It all looks so beautiful dear Henny Penny - just like a winter wonderland. I wish I could send you some pics of it here - very brown & crisp & dried out. Lots of dead things in my poor old garden.

  3. GORGEOUS! Snow is beautiful clinging to trees and bushes, especially with that brilliant blue sky. Eli is so white that he seems to disappear - he's snow white!

    1. Thank you Peg. Today most of the snow melted. We got up to 52 degrees. This has been crazy weather.

  4. Looks like a Wonderland there Henny !
    Fluffy snowflakes are the best, Eli and Smokey having a grand old time :)
    What I notice mostly is the silence....so quiet.
    Hugs,

  5. I love the snow pictures. We have had no snow at all this year. Not even a little flurry so I am happy to see your snow.

  6. It is beautiful and I suppose exciting to you all who don't get snow regularly, but being an Michigan girl I am over it! Also, thankful that we had a mild winter as winters go! No polar vortex this time!

  7. Such beautiful snow pictures! Stunning against that blue blue sky!. I imagine that once the sun was out a bit that it all melted fast and everything was drip drip dripping.

  8. Oh, the blue skies.... They are almost as wonderful as the snow. I love the snow pictures! "Snow blossoms covering the trees..." Oh how beautiful!

  9. The trees are pretty. I always think the prettiest snows are gone the very next day. LOL. I am not crazy for snow. I bet your pets were in shock, although dogs seem to love romping in it. Saty warm young lady, xoxo, Blessings, Susie

  10. Oh Henny! I just knew your home and land would be so beautiful in the snow and it sure is really beautiful!!! The trees, everything is gorgeous. And that blue sky against the snow! I bet Eli did love it, but poor Smokey - he looks so cold. I know cats are stubborn though and he probably loved it too. Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures!

  11. Well, as much as I don't care for winter those are gorgeous pictures. Looks like fairy land to me! When we have snow like that we have cloudy gray skies--the blue behind the snow is beautiful. xo Diana

  12. As much as I detest snow and by this time in February I am always absolutely over it, I have to admit your photos are gorgeous. That blue sky is amazing. Eli looks like he's having a wonderful time but I'm surprised Smokey even ventured out into it. Our cats would NEVER get their paws into snow! Enjoy it while you have it and I'm really glad your power came back on.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  16. Beautiful pictures of your snow day. So pretty with the blue skies. Here in the Charlotte area we had a few hours of flurries, but nothing stuck around. It was pretty and peaceful while it lasted. It's always worth documenting with photos as it happens so rarely in these parts.

  17. Your snow photos are beautiful! And it looks like it will go away fast too. That's all good. Love your blue sky!

  18. I too think snow is beautiful- especially if I don't have to drive anywhere. Eli finally wore camouflage. 😉❄️☃

  21. Hi Henny- Delightful Snow photos you have shared with us- so different to here- never been in snow. Regards. KEV.

  22. Oh those are beautiful snow pictures. Those are the best kind of snows, wet ones that coat every little twig and make the trees and bushes look gorgeous. When the sun shines on them they look just magical.

    I can imagine how much Eli enjoys the cold weather. He is just made for it with all that hair and blends in wonderfully.

    1. Thank you Willie. Of Course I don't mind your copying the pictures, I'm flattered. And to think, I was using my little $99.00 camera. Hope you get a break from the rain soon, and the others too. We have had way too much rain this winter.

  24. Oh my I heard you had quite a bit of snow. So unusual for you. It was truly beautiful to see friend. Here in Ohio we have had more rain than the white stuff. Hope you are staying warm. Loved seeing Eli and Smokey! HUGS

  25. The snow is very pretty, regardless of what it did to the power lines. We (of course) have quite a bit here in Ontario where we live. We had a little grey cat named Nelly who used to follow us on walks as well. :) -Jenn

  27. It all looks so beautiful. Thankfully the snow that was predicted for our little Island didn't happen but the wind and rain continue.

  28. You can't lose Smokey in that snow, but Eli is a different story with that white fur!
    Good thing you knew Poppy had him. Love the picture of the blue sky, because I am not
    a fan of snow. We only had the cold, so sorry you got hit and lost power for so long.

  32. Oh no, I love snow-- I never tire of it. Winter has its rightful place, too! Spring will come when it has to and it will be lovely, of course. That sky-- well, everything looks so pristine! Love that Smokey tags along with you on your family walks. Blessings!

    All your snow pictures are gorgeous.

  41. Ha! Oh Henny, I live in snow land, and I never get sick of snow photos. Snow is so magical, and it really is beautiful all around your property. And you are right, what a beautiful Carolina blue sky.

  44. Oh my goodness, these photos are gorgeous! We got a little bit here in TN the morning before y'all got yours but ours was wet and the sun never came out at all. If you feel like me, give me one pretty snow for the season and I'm good! I am ready....SO READY...for spring!

  45. How gorgeous, Henny!! I can't believe the kitties go on your walk, too - that's hysterical!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your snow pictures are mind-boggling Henny!! Blue sky and frozen trees are the perfect combinations, not less than a miracle. I had to put on an extra lens to identify Eli in the pics. He thoroughly blended with the snow background. Smokey was the perfect poser in all the photos. Loads of love to both of them and happy blogging Henny!!
