Sun and Snow

Last night, we had a first real snowfall of the season.  Only about an inch, but the trees look pretty.

This is what passes as a bright, sunny high noon in Vermont.  There are a few blue patches visible and the sun did peek out enough to cast a shadow or two.

 I told Mike I didn't think he should be out shovelling wet snow when he has not had his check up from the last cardioversion.  I went out to do it myself.  Fortunately, some random passerby felt the need to turn around in our driveway even though there is a paved public drive clearly visible 100 yards down the road.  That added iced tracks to the job.  Exercise, good exercise for me.

I do love the look of fresh snow blanketing the world as much as anyone, but, seriously, this is what it really looks like before too long.  Gray and dirty, not so pretty at all.


  1. Beautiful pictures. I love new snow falls until about March.. then I want to be done. Oh well warmer climates await us!! Enjoy your holiday preparations. Ceilia's ear surgery went well. Will post about it tomorrow.

  2. These photos are beautiful. I don't envy you doing all that shoveling. It was a good thing you did it for your husband, but remember to take care of yourself too.

  3. Everyone in Perth is hoping for more snow. Just a bit. Not snowmageddon though!

    Today my granddaughter turns 4. So much fun being gramma, isn't it??!!


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
