Snow !!

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.

Rusty Metal:

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.

Any way the snow looks great in your garden, or rather the opposite... Soon it will be over and at summer we'll regret some cold. Mini hugs

Did you have really big snowflakes? We had some huge ones! It was lovely to enjoy the snow yesterday and know that it would be gone today!

Hi Glenda, We didn't get any snow in my area. It was all to the south of us. Some of the neighboring counties got flurries and below them got several inches. It just slid right under use. Your photos are beautiful. As much as I don't like snow (if I have to be out and about) it does transform a rather dreary winter landscape.

Have a happy day

I am so jealous of your snow! I learned a similar lesson several years ago with an umbrella. :-) Has it all melted yet? My children still have snow and I guess it will stick around until tomorrow because it is already below freezing!

Your snow pictures are beautiful.. I had to laugh when you were talking about the umbrella.. I take it you got a bit on the wet side..??? Is it still there or is your snow gone now? We got 6" and it's still here.. hugs ~lynne~

Hi Glenda thank you for your concern but I didn't a true virus.Some days ago Nikki wrote about a rush of "housewifeness" and she cleaned up all the house. I did the same yesterday that's why I said I've been infected;o))
Thank you so much for the advices and your sweetness. Mini hugs
