What a Difference a Few Days Make- A Snowy Day


My lovely signs of spring are buried under about 5 inches of snow. My husband and I were home today, as we work at the same high school, and school was called off.  I spent most of the day on the computer, blogging.  This will be my second post of the day for this blog.  I also got in and changed the size of my words in my html, but for some reason, they got smaller when I typed in "normal" so I typed in medium, and got this size.  

If you click on the collages, they should get bigger, and you can see the snow coming down.



Have a great weekend!

  1. So much of snow! Whoa! Does melt away easily or needs cleaning?

  2. Sue, snow-ugh! t had hoped we were done with it. But I think we are going to get the rest of the snow storm here to night. Spring is at least carefully blanketed by the snow. Have a great weekend.

  3. Hi Chandramouli and Beckie,
    I have been on the computer much of the day, and here I am, up past midnight! I'm kind of caught up, and had fun messing with my settings, but I need to do other things the rest of the weekend, like play with my grandson tomorrow.

    Oh, and Larry and I are going out to eat with another couple tomorrow.

    Chandramouli, The snow usually melts within a few days this time of year, but not always. I don't think it's supposed to warm up above freezing for a few days, though, so this will be here awhile. The snow plows have been working the streets.

    Beckie, I hope your area doesn't get too much.

  5. Five inches! Whew. Well you got a day off and some wonderful pictures so I guess there is an upside to winter's tenacious grip. A nice weekend to you too.

  6. Wow, now that is some REAL snow! I'm glad we in Seattle are not the only ones who get "snow days" off from school. Sometimes we get a complex about that. :) Thanks for your comment on my blog, and yes, it's supposed to be about parking strip gardens (but I digress a lot). Love the snowdog and the other pics of the cause of your day off!

  7. Poor you - so tantalising when spring seemed just on the horizon. But I was delighted to see your iconic fire hydrant featuring in your collage. As you requested, I've started collecting links to other posts of fire hydrants from my original post.

    Your dog looks all ready to play in the snow - that's such an engaging tilt of the head. I hope you put your camera away and obliged!

  9. Ah, what a lovely gift from Mom Nature. First she dumps weeks of snow, drives us crazy, thaws it all out, revving us up for Spring, then *whammo*. She really does have a sense of humor. ;-)

  10. The snow is so pretty. I think I would have that sinking feeling in my stomach if it snowed on my signs of spring!

  11. Good morning Sue! Wow, you DID get a lot of snow! We got just a light dusting here last night. Your collage is beautiful! Hope you have a happy Valentines Day and a great weekend.

  12. I can understand. We just had 3-4 inches and they are covering whatever signs of spring I had! Happy Valentines Day!

  14. Hi Sue, Happy Valentine's Day! I'm sorry your little 'spring reprieve' has been interrupted:( It did make for some lovely collages, though! They almost look like black and white photos that you just added a touch of color to (red, blue, etc) but I know that's how it really looks. Keep looking at blogs with bright colors and flowers. Spring will come to you soon, I just know it!

  15. Happy Valentine's Day!
    In February I always think, "It won't be too long now before the days are sunny and warm. Spring is just around the corner!"
    Snow is good moisture and very pretty pictures.
    Hugs,
    Sherry

  16. Polubing, I think the snow will actually be good for the flowers, and protect them from the cold air. I know the moisture will be good for them as the snow melts. Welcome to my blog!

    Linda, I notice some had put up fire hydrants, and checked at least one, but may have gotten sidetracked. I'll have to go back, and see if I can put another link here to the ones you've collected.

    Thanks for all the other comments! I did not go out and play, I wish I'd thought to.
