It was predicted, and the grocery stores were packed Saturday morning, I am sure. I don't drink milk and already had bread so I stayed at home. :-) When a few flurries start falling, the whole area goes into panic mode. However, we had a lot more than a few flurries this time. I took these pictures Saturday afternoon.
Why is the door between me and the snow? IT WAS COLD OUT THERE!
These I took Sunday morning.
Someone said we got about 7 ins. in this immediate area. Not to far from here got only a couple of inches, and a little further North got 12 to 18 inches. So I had to go measure :) - Most places were 5 ins. What ever it was, it was more than enough! My poor azaleas are under there!
Lessons Learned: Get under the umbrella, not off to the side, when trying to lower umbrella so the snow will fall off (snow is very cold & wet on your back). Do not knock off one side at a time, because the weight will shift and umbrella will start to lean. Learn to move VERY fast - hold onto umbrella stand while knocking snow off the opposite side, before the whole thing falls over taking table and all with it. The rest can stay on there for all I care. Most Valuable Lesson Learned: When it starts snowing, lower umbrella - even if it is cold out there! Don't ask me how I know all this!
Poor thing, looks so cold!
To answer some of your questions......
Emerald Green Glassware:
Glenda: I don't think I have ever seen the water goblets - bet they are beautiful.
Lynne: These dishes came in oats - however, other kinds of dishes often came in detergent and cereal.
Domestic Designer: I have seen the small glasses and think they are juice glasses.
lvorftiques and Ann: We were not sure if those frames were old. The place had a combination of antique, vintage, new, and reproduction (lots of reproduction).
Hope everyone has a great day.
