Let it Snow!!!



Anybody who has known me for any length of time knows that I am a snow person. I have a love of snow that is probably rivaled only by polar bears and Christmas elves (and I would even challenge the notion that either of those two love snow as much as me). 

A couple of weeks ago, on November 1st, we woke up with a dusting of snow on the ground. It's the earliest snow I can remember here in central Kentucky! Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.
Last year, Kentucky had their snowiest winter in over a decade. It was freaking awesome! I loved every second of it. Snow just brings out a childhood enthusiasm in me that is very hard to describe. 

I love spending time outside while the snow is falling, hearing the crunch of the snow under my feet as I walk on it, feeling the snowflakes fall upon my nose when I look up at it. To me, snow is one of the most beautiful things in the universe.


Do you enjoy snow? Do you get much snow where you live?

  1. Yes! We had a lot of snow last winter as well and it was awesome. Our work usually shuts down and I can stay home and enjoy it. I've lived in places that got several feet of snow at a time and really miss that here.

  2. Hi Keith - we're not really geared up for it here in the UK .. and so I love looking out at it and do enjoy scrunching through freshly fallen snow .. but I'm not that happy having to live in it now! So some small amounts = yea .. but lots .. no thanks ...

    Enjoy - I gather it's come early this year ... cheers Hilary

  4. I love it and MISS it so much!!! Darn AZ!!!!!!!!

  5. hey Keith, YES we get heaps of snow here in Canada, but although it IS beautiful, and I admire your childlike enjoyment of it, I dont love it, and could just as easily enjoy a winter without it. We used to live in the state of Victoria in Australia, and I really loved celebrating Christmas in the sunshine.

  6. I like the look of snow and I wouldn't want to live without it... BUT... I could do with a little less :-)

    I wish you lived closer so you could decorate for me too... I bet it would look amazing :-)

  7. I knew I liked you in the first minute of our "meeting." I too am a Snow Person!" I really can't understand preferring hot, sticky, humidity over crisp, fresh and frosty. I love walking, exercising in the winter . . . granted, one needs to be prepared for slippery walkways and clothing protection is a must. Sledding, skating, hiking, walking, snow shoeing are made perfectly wonderful with SNOW! I think my favorite is feeling the crisp air and snow on my face. My kind of facial . . . Icy roads and white out conditions are not fun but there are alternatives like, taking the back roads, staying home and driving slowly. Snow in Michigan this past year was how I remember Wisconsin winters . . . I love snow!

  8. You were supposed to keep it all down there Keith!

    In answer to your question:

    I don't like when it's not hot,
    I dislike snow quite a lot,
    I'd just as soon Christmas were balmy...
    And would happily decorate a palm tree!

  9. All of my experiences of snow are now 12 years old since we moved to Florida to spend the winters. A lifetime of snows, snow shoveling, snow tunneling, spinning out on slippery roads, gripping the steering wheel on the way to work. The only time I enjoyed it was when it was soft and fluffy, feathery, the first blanket of snow in the fall. Magical. I like to enjoy it from the windows inside the house, not out there trying to get somewhere...

  10. My hometown is in Trivandrum, Kerala, a Southern Indian State close to the equator. So the first time I saw snow was when i went to London. I was 30 years old then :) It was an awesome feeling , I remember my hair stood on end and there were tears in my eyes. It was such a beautiful experience . :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great picture. As others have said, the UK gets a relatively modest amount of snow - except when it's exceptionally bad...and a dusting of snow in the south usually results in the declaration of a National Emergency. do I like it? Yes - provided I don't have to work in it, drive too far in it and, if I'm walking, have the promise of a warm fire and a good pint of ale not far away.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We get lots of it....it's on the ground now and apparently it is here to stay. Do I enjoy it...no....I used to but now that I'm older and not so good on my feet I dread it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Snow banks as tall as my house as a kid was sure fun, now it can just go away and stay away though. Nothing but a pain in the arse

    ReplyDelete
  14. Keith, you remind me of Buddy (Will Farrell) in The Elf. Hahaha!!!!
    Everything looks pretty with a dusting of snow. With it comes cold and quiet. That's what I like about winter. The QUIET part.
    I hope you get lots of snow this Christmas, Buddy. ;)

  15. you must be a child at heart...I do love the first fallen snow...but it has come early this year and it is beastly cold outside!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't like our snow - it's wet and slushy, and it gets icy and dangerous very quickly. Not good. In a really bad patch of snow/ice a couple of years ago, everyone in town was walking super-slow to prevent falling over.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Keith, I am not a fan of snow. I guess I used to be when I was a kid and big snow meant 'snow days' and time off from school....but at this time of my life snow means difficult driving, and that makes all the difference. It also means that when I take the dogs outside I have to go out and shovel areas for them too (as they are all under 6 pounds!). We had a lot of snow last winter; and also horrendous cold. It looks like this winter will be the same kind of winter. Our extreme cold has already settled in. Keep snow in your neighborhood, please; but spare mine. Smiles.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Keith, I've always thought I enjoyed snow in the past - not because I might be out in it, but because it gave me an "excuse" to hibernate.:-) It does seem like winter has arrived before Thanksgiving this season! Take care, and stay safe and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I doesn't snow that often here. A few years ago when my great nephew was about a year old, it snowed three times and was deep enough for him to enjoy. We called him the snowbaby.

    I enjoy snow, but I'm retired now and don't have to navigate my way to work on treacherous roads. I can simply put another log on the fire, a fresh pot of coffee, and write at while looking through my office window.

  20. I live in Canada. I think that answers both your questions.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I LOVE snow. I was so excited when we got snow this weekend. I am in Missouri - so obviously we get snow. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nice to hear it has finally happened. Snow falling at last. It may be a common occurrence there but it's a novelty for us in the tropics. Great write Keith!

  23. There's snow business like snow business! I love the magical mood of snow and the silence it brings. We're still waiting for ours to come!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do enjoy snow but at my age, it's best observed from my vantage point 'out a window'..

    ReplyDelete
  25. We have about an inch here now. I would enjoy snow if it could be snowy and 70 degrees outside at the same time! Glad to hear there are some people who enjoy it how it is; it is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love snow to watch too, but to drive, to dig 2 - 6 and more inches from the car make it challenge here in MN. Happy memory of childhood, sliding in slad, playing in snow - totally different point of view. So now, when I clean my car of snow I tell myself and everyone, that I'm playing with snow... :)x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Our last snow was in 1985. It's beautiful but after a few days I get cabin fever.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You're a snow person Keith, it's true. I think you love snow because the temps aren't very cold and you can walk without a hat and warm clothes. When we have snow and wind and cold we always have to wear fur or wool hats and coats as the warm boots. There can be problems with frozen cars, deep snow on road etc. As you see I love a little snow and warm winter.

    ReplyDelete
  29. the last snow i saw was in Sloans Valley Ky in 1959. and your description is just what i remember... we moved to KY when i was 9 and left when i was 15. and i loved snow then and snow cream that mother made each time it snowed. now i love Florida and the fact there is no cold or snow... times change and the things we love...right now we are at 59 degrees and that is COLD for us...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo AND I MISS IT! Although I've never been in snow :/
    Someday SOON.
    Thank you for sharing your love of snow :) But I'm totally jealous :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think I enjoy the first snow of the year and that's about it! lol. I went to school in upstate new york, i have no idea why because i'm not a snow fan, and it was brutal. last year we had a lot of snow where i am and i'm only hoping that this year it won't be that bad! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's beautiful but often it freezes hard and all are at risk for falling if they have to walk out. Fortunately it is flat as a pancake mostly here. Having said that, we really need a good snowpack in the nearby mountains here to help with the water situation in this farming community.

    ReplyDelete
  33. we had our first of the season 4" snow this Sunday and I was giddy like you! I love to sit and watch the birds!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Snow really is pretty if one doesn't have to get out too much in it, LOL :) But really it is pretty to watch it fall and when it snows a lot and at night it is so bright outside with the reflection of the snow against the sky :)

    I loved the first snows in Montana of the season and the March snows (because the season was almost over). I wasn't crazy about the January snows :)

    For me it was a challenge when we lived in Montana because I was a Southern California girl, LOL. Learned how to drive in Southern California and had never driven in snow/ice. What a lesson I got over the 8 years we lived there. Conversely, son learned how to drive in Montana and loved skidding and sliding where I was petrified the whole time I had to drive (at least the first few years, then it was easier :)

    Enjoy the snow :)

    No snow here in Southern California where I live now. The mountains get the snow, but I'm about 45 minutes from one set of them and 2 hours from another :)

    betty

  35. Snow has always been a part of my life here in Nova Scotia, Canada. We usually have snow from late November till late April. The key is to be prepared......with driving, clothing, snow removal and heating. Once that is done.....bring it on! I do like it, I must say.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We get maybe two snow falls a year. I liked it as a kid, but I hate driving in it, and the ice that usually follows.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes and No. I love Snow (I like to travel to our Highlands and enjoy it. Even just the sight of it makes me turn into a 3 years-old on Christmas Eve ahahah) but we don't have it where I live (Lisbon-Portugal).
    When we reach 50 people start moaning about dreadful Winter ;) so there's not enough cold, or when it is there's no rain so... no snow on my backyard.
    My kids also love snow and I like to point that not all is white and well when there is - there's the shoveling, the not so romantic stories of being road-bound in the middle of a snow storm... - but then must have inherited my gene of love for snow.
    So it's with excitement that I see your backyard's pictures and witness the world, far away, being snowed. Selfish uh?
    Enjoy,
    Teresa

  38. I grew up in Ohio, went to college in Michigan, then lived two years in New York City. After that, I moved to Savannah, GA.

    Here is the thing about me and snow: I love it in theory. Not so much in reality. I live in Florida now. I have no plans to ever live up north again. hahahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It was definitely gorgeous yesterday but you'd be the only person who is excited about snow this year considering how last year's winter was.

    I do like the snow. I just dont like winter.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I moved to Florida from Michigan when I was two, so I've never been able to experience snow, but one day I hope I can. I think snow is beautiful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I wish I liked snow even a little bit, but...I don't. We can still be friends though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, I don't like to be cold! But visually, I think snow scenes are beautiful. Your photograph is beautiful, and it's just the kind of scene the Impressionists loved to paint.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The first snow always makes me giggle. But my favorite are the days that the snow is already out on the ground and it's so so so cold but the sun is shining.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh yes a regular snow bunny I am , despite the difficulty it brings to getting the farm chores accomplished on occasion. We too have a record amount of snow last year ~ tons of it and I documented in all in blog photos , loving every minute of it :)))))) There were gorgeous shots to be taken on those pristine mornings .

    ReplyDelete
  45. we had snow two nights ago, here. on green trees and green grass. very odd, very early. i think you need to move north!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm not a snow person. It's pretty to watch on TV, but that's as far as I need to see snow. I could live on a tropical island year around and be most happy.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like the silence, the serenity and a white clean envelope of snow. I like the way sunlight reflects off the morning snow to create a field of sparkle!! I live in Denver and we get a lot of snow, I can see my snowy backyard now. Have a wonderful day Keith and keep sharing!! Hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love this photo, Keith!!! Yes, I do love snow. Living in Montreal, Canada, we do get a lot, and many people come to Quebec to ski at places like Mont Tremblant and Mont St-Sauveur. It is beautiful, white, clean, and the crisp, fresh smell of the air is wonderful! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Even though i am not sports inclined and can't skate or ski I love snow and winter. I grew up in the country and, when I was a kid, the big snowfalls were normal. We had allot of snow last year and this was how it is supposed to be. It is so wondrous to see the flakes (not people this time) gently falls. I love walking in it and, at night, it looks like diamond dust and glitters. I dress up all nice and warm and it is so pretty-love it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Cm'on, I live in the mountains above nine-thousand feet. Here it has snowed just enough to snowshoe. There's supposed to be more on the way, which is good, I'd feel silly just hiking to the hut we're doing for Sabina's birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the snow! We get the majority of our moisture from snow...very little rain here...I love the cold, crisp, refreshing feeling from snow..I always look forward to each season... :)
    It was 4* this morning! foggy, frost on everything! And a light flurry....so beautiful....

  52. Yes, I'm absolutely a snow person. We usually get snow here in the south of Germany, but nothing compared to the winters we had in Chicago.
    Love the pic and the childhood memories snow does bring out in most of us.

    ReplyDelete
  53. So pretty! That first dusting always feels magical, and makes me hum, "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas."

    ReplyDelete
  54. If your enthusiasm was snowflakes, you'd be up to your eyeballs in the white stuff. I'm less fond of it but then again, we get way too much of it. It's lovely at first , of course but after shoveling every day for weeks on end, it's time to make an offering to the Sping gods. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  55. LOOOOOVE snow. But central Virginia doesn't get enough of it!

    ReplyDelete
  56. i live in central nj, where we always get some snow, but usually in controllable doses i can cope with. last year, we got WAAAAAAY too much snow, and i'm now feeling slightly phobic about winter generally. (so you'd be MOST WELCOME to my share of the white stuff!!!) :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Snow covers a multitude of sins. I like my garden when it snows.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love that photo. The sky looks it's made of snow, too.
    I live in Minnesota and most winters we get a LOT of snow. You had to learn to like it or you will be miserable for many months of the year!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love how happy you are about the snow! No snow here yet, it is still too warm. I do like snow, it's just too cold for me. :) I do not make sense, I know.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think you could safely say we get snow here in Montana. I'm not a big fan of it or sub-zero cold however when life hands you blizzards why not make snow cones?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love how how quiet and peaceful everything feels after the first snow.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yeah well I've never experienced snowfall so wouldn't know. But, snow pictures almost always look really beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  63. None. Not a flake, not wisp of a flake nothing. Oh sure on the freak years that we do get an inch of snow that lasts for more than an hour, the weirdo people come out and try to make snowmen out of it...they all look dirty. We had an inch of snow a few years ago and you would have thought the world was coming to an end the way the news media was out in force interviewing people making dirty snowmen and trying to slide down small hills on tires. It was hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That's a gorgeous picture, Keith. I only like the snow when I'm looking at it from a warm cozy place in sunny CA. I'm glad you're getting the hearty dose that keeps you happy.

    ReplyDelete
  65. We get very little snow in my city - though I can often see it on the hills. And I welcome it. I think it is magical, beautiful...

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yes, I do like snow. Last year we had 205 inches of it out here in Garrett County in western Maryland. It was our first winter living here and we enjoyed it. Have had a few dustings here this year but still waiting for the first big one.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Absolutely!! Where I grew up we always got lots of snow and I loved it. Then we moved to the PNW where it is hit or miss if we will get any snow to speak of...and I soo miss it when we don't get any! My kids and I always hope, though.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Like the thought of it...hate the reality

    ReplyDelete
  69. Keith, what are you talking about?!?!?! :-) :-) :-)
    Snow I like, but not the cold... We really have too much of both here in Montreal. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love snow in snow country, like Vail, Colorado or
    Sun Valley, Idaho...however, I think it would be very very difficult to live and work in a city where the snow falls in winter. I have been in NYC in a blizzard snow, Washington DC, the same. While it's beautiful like you say, it makes life difficult when you have months on end of whiteness. Just saying. You made me smile bigtime when I read your words about the snowflakes. Pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Like you I LOVE SNOW !!! Partly because I spent most of my life in Florida and partly because I am retired and don't have to try to get to work in it. It brings out my 6 year old self who is either outside playing in it or has her nose to the window watching it. We got a dusting also.

    ReplyDelete
  72. It snowed here last week. It's been pretty cold. I don't mind it. I just don't like that it turns all brown and yucky from the cars.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have only seen snow from afar...and that was far away from where I live. It doesn't snow here in south-east Queensland. And only once have I been up close and personal to sleet...that I can remember, anyway.

    I wouldn't mind a bit of snow at present...we're experiencing very hot weather at the moment. We're a couple of weeks away from the start of our summer...so more will come.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Snow is everywhere up here Keith ~ I don't mind looking at the snow outside when I am cozy and warm on the inside ~ Enjoy your winter days & nights ~

    ReplyDelete
  75. Snow is beautiful...in small doses. We have to be out in it a lot, and the snow and cold really is tiring.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, I'll send you all my snow then. As pretty and clean as it makes things look, it is not fun to shovel.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Right now, California will accept anything wet from the sky, Keith. But yes, I enjoy snow!

    ReplyDelete
  78. You know I enjoy snow. Our snowfall varies wildly. sometimes we get lots of snow and some years we don't get enough to cross country ski.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm a fan as long as I don't have to go anywhere

    ReplyDelete
  80. Not much snow where i live, but it does snow in southern Australia. I go to the Northern Hemp when I feel the need for a good snowy crunch!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I would usually like to say yes but memories of me falling in snow up to my butt is coming to mind. I love snow if I don't have to go anywhere. If I can stay inside or have others drive then yes I like it...

    ReplyDelete
  82. That is beautiful! I live in Nashville. If we get snow, it melts off an hour later...and it's always just a light dusting. I would like one of those snows that lasts a day or two--as long as I have plenty of food in the house first!

    ReplyDelete
  83. What is this thing called snow?

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love love love SNOW... Just ask my husband. One reason we moved to the Cumberland Plateau (which is 2000 feet above sea level) is that they have all four seasons---including SNOW (not tons of it like places up north) --but enough to enjoy. AND--the first several years we lived here, we would have a couple of really pretty snows (5+ inches)... I was such a Happy Camper. BUT--the past 4-5 years, the snows have been missing us. Yes, we get some these days, but usually they are very very small --and/or they are the dry snow which isn't pretty and doesn't cling to everything... Last year, there was snow ALL around us and it would always miss us... Don't know why--but it really did upset me. I hope that this year is different and that we do get at least one biggie which is pretty and fun to be out in!!!! YES---I love snow, but living here is very frustrating most years...
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  85. I love snow on Christmas eve. That it... I loved snow as a kid but at 68, it has lost it charm for me. I fell and nearly killed myself a few years ago and hit my head so badly on a big chunk of ice hidden under a beautiful fresh fallen snow...and I needed months of physio tand much $ $ $ to heal my damaged shoulder. So I don't get too thrilled either when I have to sped over $500. dollars for winter tires. Shovelling is killing my poor back.
    Keith, I'm glad that you're still young to enjoy all that snow. You have a great attitude...

    Hugs,

  86. I love snow! And so does my puppy. I've been thinking that I should take a video of her rolling in the snow for Instagram soon. :) And as you can probably guess, in Minnesota we tend to get lots of snow. Some years we get more than others. Last year we had a lot of snow; the snow banks were getting pretty high and I think in the city they actually went through to remove some of the snow from the snow banks. I think we might have a cold and snowy winter ahead of us this year too. This summer there were predictions that we'd have one and we have had unusually low temps this month.

  87. -chuckle-
    I get absolutely no snow where I live, and I insist that I love it more than you! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Love snow. Some winters we have three or four feet. Love skiing. Love snowmobiling. Love picnics in the snow. Love it but hate driving in it. Most of the winter I enjoy it but near Spring I want to flame-throw it. I guess the relationship is complicated.

    ReplyDelete
  89. We get a lot of snow. The mountains get a ton of snow! If it just wasn't so bloody cold with it...

  90. Since moving to Edinburgh, i had hardly ever seen snow here until about four years ago and then for three years we had very snowy winters which I really enjoyed. I love how the landscape looks in snow

  91. I want to like snow, but I just don't like to be cold anymore. I am trying though. I loved it when I was younger.

  92. That's a stunning picture! I too love snow but my city doesn't get snowy winters. -_-

    ReplyDelete
  93. I do like the snow, and it brings back wonderful memories from my childhood. I just don't want too much of it, or for it to stick around for lengthy periods. Which it does up here in the north. I'd be happy to ship the excess to you!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Like you, Keith, I absolutely adore snow...unfortunately though, we haven't had any here for two years now.:( ...so if you do have loads again this winter - PLEASE, PLEASE send some my way?? I would be SO grateful!!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  95. I just love snow!!! :D
    I recently went to Switzerland and just seeing snow there lighted me up! :D

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love snow! I'm very sad that Atlanta doesn't get much. Enjoy your snow!

    ReplyDelete
  97. There is something about snow that brings out the kid in all of us Keith. It is beautiful and though I would not want to shovel it on a regular basis, I love it! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  98. When I was a child, I loved snow.
    Now? I've got to shovel that nonsense. As soon as my youngest child graduates from college, we're heading south.
    Buffalo gets 5-6 feet of the stuff over a week before Thanksgiving???
    Good gorry.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Snow? In Florida? LOL. I grew up in the foothills of the Rockies, and on a good year, we'd get 3 feet at once. Usually it was only a foot at a time. I absolutely loved the snow. Then (many years later) I moved to upstate NY. On Lake Ontario. In the snow belt. 1 hour south of Canada.

    They got 15 feet of snow in 3 days.

    I'm happy to be in Florida. =)

  100. I LOVE the snow! It's one of the things I miss the most about Utah. You enjoy it for me ;)

    ReplyDelete
  101. I like snow for the same reasons you do....but, I don't like to drive in snow. I've had that experience for over 40 years living in the Colorado foothills. Driving and deep caverns that are just off the highway scared the heck outta me. That is the reason we moved south!! And guess what? The first year we lived in the south, on the coast....it snowed. But all was forgiven since it snowed on Christmas Eve!!!!!!!

  102. ah snow! not my jam! i just love summer :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am soooo with you. I love everything about the snow - the sound it makes underfoot - the feel of it on my face - and they way it turns a plain valley into a magical wonderland. Sadly, where I live in NZ, we never get snow. Ever. Pah.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I used to love the snow. I think I still do; it's the icy roads, frozen pipes, and generally frozen everything that I don't like. This is the second year we've left northern BC to live in Mexico for the winter. I love being warm more, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Beautiful photo...and YES I love snow but not the amount Buffalo New York has...unbelievable.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Snow is beautiful and magical - but I have a healthy respect for it and try not to drive in it often. We don't get a lot of snow here in Western WA state, but when we do, everything comes to a standstill. We have so many hills! I always feel bad for the wildlife when it snows, but I love the beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love the snow. I have only lived in this area for 7 years and it's still new for me. The snow fall varies from year to year in the city but the mountains which are very close get quite a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I can't share in your enthusiasm for snow. I simply despise it. We are seriously considering a move down south as soon as the kids move out to get away from the cold and snow. Though, I will admit that the first snow of the year is so gorgeous! Anything after that can suck it!

  109. LOL! Do we get much snow...

    Why I oughta...

    Not only do we get snow here in The Neighbors to the Great White North (Minnesota), but we get cold. And unfortunately the two cannot be separated.

    But hey. At least it's not the UP of Michigan, or upstate New York. Those poor people get if four and five and more feet at a time, while we only get it a foot or so at a time.

    So we got that going for us.

    :-)

    That said, I doubt I'll ever move. I'm a Minnesota kind of gal and love the people, the seasons, the arts and nightlife of Minneapolis. Plus: sweaters and schnapps. :-) Yum.

  110. Great photo! I'm a snowperson too. I love snow. Even after living in New England for nearly eight years, I still love it. Now I live in Tennessee and wish we got more snow. :( But I saw snowflakes dancing in the air the other day--it made me silly happy.

  111. I enjoy all the things you mention about snow too, but have to admit I'm not a fan of freezing weather or driving in the white stuff when there's traffic. Of course, I'm not a fan of traffic when it's eighty degrees and dry outside either. :)

  112. We get our fair share here in Michigan. My kids LOVE the snow. I have no idea who they got that from, it wasn't me or their dad. ;)

  113. You and me, too. Only I don't think I'm ready for a Buffalo-like winter. I'd have to buy a new snow shovel. :-)

  114. I do like snow, but maybe not as much as they are getting up north. However, when you mentioned about feeling the crunch of snow under your feet and feeling the snowflakes fall on your nose, that's idyllic. I do love that. We are in northern Virginia and compared to a lot of places we don't get as much snow. Last winter was more than normal and I wonder if this year might be the same.

  115. What a beautiful picture.
    Let's see--I like snow days, but not shoveling. And I'm not a big fan of the cold. I live in MA, so we get a fair bit. It is beautiful... from inside the house!

  116. Snow is awesome ... as long as I don't have to drive in it. Here in Seattle we normally get 2 or 3 rounds of snowfall ... usually doesn't last long. A few years ago we had a really big snow ... traffic was snarled ... it took a couple of days to get the streets cleared ... the Mayor got voted out of office. :-) Thank you for stopping by John's Island and leaving the kind comment. You have an excellent blog here! John

  117. I really love the way snow sparkles in sunlight, and the contrast of snow with a clear, cold sapphire sky.

  118. It's pretty when it's fresh. Since we have to look at winter anyway, it may as well snow.

  119. Though it doesn't snow where I live, I love traveling to hill - stations in winters :-)

  120. It snowed for 1/2 an hour in Melbourne on the 26th July 1882! And thats about it. Having said that we can have snow within about an hours drive!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  121. Sadly, last year was the worst snowless winter ever in Finland. Not looking any better this year, but it is snowing lightly right now, so maybe there's still hope. I LOVE snow, but not the cold that usually comes with it!

  124. Nice photo, Keith. No snow here, excecpt when it gets really cold, it snows on the mountain, but only on a rare, rare occasion does it reach the ground. I love snow. It's beautiful and magical. I enjoy it from afar, mostly through photos. : )

  125. Snow is a dream for me... Glad your favourite season is back so earlier. Enjoy my friend :)

  126. That's such a beautiful photo Keith! I hope it snows a lot for you this year :). Here in Canada we get so much snow and it really is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Hi human, Keith,

    Ah yes, some snow. Just watch out for yellow snow. Where I live in England, we had no snow at all last winter. The year before, I was a snow plough (plow) and cleared the snow with my nose! Arf!

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :)

  128. Keith,
    Lucky you for having snow! I bet it is magical and a glorious sight! I don't get to see the snow much where I live unless I go up in the mountains about an hour away. I wish it came knocking on my door. A lot of my blog friends don't enjoy the snow that surrounds them in their town. It is awesome to hear that you embrace it. Good for you, Keith. Enjoy your beautiful snow this year.

  129. Beautiful photo! Though nothing is prettier than a fresh snowfall, the older I get the more I worry about driving on slippery roads, or falling on black ice. It's hard to believe I once was a fearless skier! May your house look like it's right out of a snow globe this holiday season!

  130. Ha! I just posted yesterday on how much I hate snow. Sorry, buddy! Enjoy, though - it's supposed to be another snowy winter.

  131. You have reminded me that I need to appreciate all seasons. Snow IS beautiful. Thank you!

  132. There's nothing more beautiful than a snow-covered landscape. I can only wish it will snow here too in Belgium. Have a lovely weekend.

  134. I did but for skiing only...until said skiing messed up my knee...twice. Now, naw. Give me a quick snow for beauty and then get gone. Brrr.

    Big hugs, honey...

  135. No snow where I live, our weather is very mild, only when it gets really, really cold, we can have snow in the higher mountains, past winter was one of those rare ocassions when we could see plenty of it.

    Indeed I have seen snow only a few times along my life when I´ve been in England or USA. I like it and I like to go to cold places but soon I miss the sun, the clarity and the warm temperatures we have here which are very tempered... heat is also rare.

  136. haha, I should not be the least surprised at how excited you are to have snow. You always seem to enjoy my snow pictures a bit too much ;) We've had several decent snows already this year but they have not managed to stick yet. The weather keeps warming back up and melting everything. I don't mind really. We get more than enough snow from January to April to appease any longings I might have.

  137. I live in Perth, Western Australia, and there is never any snow in my town. I hate it. :( I would loooove to get snow here. And hey, with the climate shifting dramatically of late, maybe I will get my wish. ;)

  138. Snow is a miracle. It makes everything beautiful and it brings people together. I love it. Especially if I have nowhere to go and have food and heat.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Hmmm... I supposed I'd miss it if it didn't snow for a couple years in a row.
    I live in central Virginia, near Richmond. We usually see at least a couple inchs at least once a year. Every year there's a few little dustings. And some years, there is 10 inches of the white stuff! Like one of your other commenters said, if I don't have to go anywhere, I'm fine. Oddly, I like shoveling snow.

  140. Oh...too much snow!!!!

    I live in Germany and we have not snow. I hope we have snow to christmas...
    Have a good day!

  141. I remember snow from the movies where they hurl snow balls at each other. When I went to Shimla as a kid, I made sure I did that :)

    One 'western' concept related to snow that makes me happy is Snow Angels...lying on the snow and making wings. Next thing to do! :)

  142. Oh my goodness, you know I LOVE snow, Keith! I am jealous you already had some. Reports are saying we should have a little dusting tomorrow. I hope so. I'd be happy even with just a dusting! Will hopefully have a new laptop in the next two weeks and get back to blogging. Can't tell you how much I miss it!!! Hope you're well. HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you!!!

  143. Love it! And I am thankful that I am farther North to enjoy more of it.
