This Snow snuck up on us in Mid-November and was followed quickly by the kind of cold snap usually reserved for January or February in our neck of the woods. Definitely rare for pre-Thanksgiving weather but beautiful nonetheless. And it instantly puts us in the mood for the holidays.
The weatherman says warmer temperatures are on the way along with lots of rain, so the snow won’t last. I think the holiday spirit will, though. We’ll keep wearing our jinglebells and drinking hot chocolate and counting the days…
Looking good Benjamin. This is quite the abrupt transition to winter. Jingle all the way! 🙂
I agree 😉
We have no snow here, just dank, dingy darkness and drizzle.
Your snow is beautiful but I would rather look at it on your blog than out of the window. Jinglebells don’ t do it for me.
Chin up, sunlover, warm weather will be upon us soon enough! 😉
There’s nothing quite like snow on an evergreen to evoke a holiday mood! I remember a few years ago, we had a freak storm that dumped about 16 inches of snow on us a couple days before Halloween. My family and I walked down the road to a neighbor’s Halloween party singing Christmas carols! No snow here for us this week, but it is plenty cold! Woke up to 14 degrees this AM. Very fine hot chocolate weather, indeed!
Brrr. Ol’ Man Winter has come early this year! Raising a cup of hot chocolate to you! Cheers, Ben
Wow, u got walloped! Please don’t send any over our way (just yet). 😉
We’ll try and keep it to ourselves…but I’m afraid you’ll be getting some soon enough. Maybe a white Christmas for everyone. And we can take some comfort in the fact we don’t live in Buffalo! 🙂
It’s definitely winter here but I’m happy to say the sun is shining and no white stuff yet. 🙂
The sun can make all the difference! 🙂
Brrr and beautiful, the evergreens look great!
Thanks! And Brrr and beautiful sums it up perfectly! 😉
Wow, it looks beautiful there! No sign of any snow here in the UK, but I’ve heard that it’s going to be a hard winter this year…. brrrrr!!!
I think there is some contradictory news. I hope the milder version prevails 😉.
Bundle up and dream warm thoughts of spring! Cheers, Ben
Thats a lovely evocative photo, we are hopefully a long way from any snow yet, I like it best when no one has to drive in it, we do not cope in the UK with snow, everything grinds to halt.
Thanks! And you’re right, snow is lovely…if you can enjoy it from the comfort of home! 😉 Cheers, Ben
It’s at the pretty stage. Rain will do it no good at all,
Indeed. It’ll be ugly shades of black and gray mixed with muddy browns before long…We must enjoy it while we can! 😉 Cheers, Ben
Good to hear you are enjoying the season, Ben. I hope the predicted rain doesn’t last, though!
Thanks! In our neck of the woods, we’re always riding the line between cold rain, freezing rain and snow. I’ll take the snow every time! 😉 Cheers, Ben
Oh definitely, snow seems the better option!
Gorgeous .. Jingle jingle 🙂
Thanks! It’s mittens and snow boots for us for a few days 😉
Very pretty! It does put us in the holiday mood. A good reminder to get on with organizing and making plans!
Indeed! I only wish I’d finished more of my outdoor chores before the snow struck 🙂
More to do next spring. But after the long winter, we are usually raring to go!
Your cold, snowy photograph is lovely in its own way. Keep warm and lets hope all your plants are snug under their winter blanket of snow.
Thanks! The snow has temporarily receded and we even got a few more bulbs in the ground this weekend! 🙂
That looks soooo cold!
That was a cold week! This week we’re back in the 60s but will soon be careening back below freezing again. This time of year keeps us guessing in our neck of the woods 😉
Beautiful capture Benjamin, and it appears our weather in northern Michigan is mirroring yours…for now anyway! You have a warm, heartfelt blog here. Thanks for finding mine and subscribing. Here comes the holidays!! Cheers, Margie
Thanks so much! I enjoy your blog very much and look forward to watching the Michigan winter unfold on it! Cheers, Ben
Could be a Christmas card! I love seeing the snow, I’m just not that keen on having to live in it!
Thanks! And yes, you’re right, snow is much better to look at then to live in. But there’s something nice about watching it pile up outside while you and the ones you love are snug inside 🙂
