|Oh --how I LOVE LOVE LOVE snow!!!! (1/22/16)|
Here in Tennessee, we don't get a lot of snow, and the one we just had is one of the prettiest ones (clinging to all of the shrubs/trees/bushes) we have had in a few years... I remember some heavier snows here when we first moved here about 2003... BUT--the past several years, we just haven't had much, to MY disappointment.
This past week, we had about 2 inches of snow on Wednesday. Then on Thursday, the temperatures warmed up and we had RAIN.... Then on Friday night--we had LOTS of RAIN, then SLEET and then SNOW... It snowed here on Friday afternoon--and continued all day on Saturday (off and on)... BUT--it was bitter cold with a stiff wind on Saturday... SO--since I had had dental surgery last week, other than to take some pictures and feed my birdies, I stayed inside.
Sit back and enjoy the pictures --knowing that you can enjoy seeing snow from the warmth of your home... Grab a cup of hot tea, hot chocolate or coffee!!!!! Some of the pictures were on the 22nd as the storm was getting started, and some were from the 23rd....
