    Same here, the warmest Christmas we ever had! There was a lot of rain also, but now it has stopped and the temperatures dropped. But I don't think we will have any snow soon.

    We're supposed to get between one and three inches tomorrow - just enough to be a pain. Anything less then 6" isn't really worth talking about! I thought our back to back blizzards a couple of years ago were fun - well over 2 feet of snow with drifts taller than I am. Now that's what I call snow......

    I love the snow! Here's the background I made for Dasher's picture.

    And here's my favorite barn

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    Our forecast for a measly little 1-3", has now been changed to all rain. It's sleeting out right now, and it will soon change to all rain I suppose. Oh well - January and February are usually our snowiest months, so there's hope yet.

    The snow started just before 3 p.m. (when it was predicted! gasp!) with a few flakes, still not more than a dusting, but they have upped our prediction to 5-10 inches. There are still birds out eating the seed I threw down earlier, and it is dusk out - usually they are tucked away for the night by the time it gets this dark, so I believe we will actually get a shovel-able amount this time.

    We got another 4-6 inches last night & today. It could stop anytime now & I'd be happy.

    Another 6 inches today, and flurries clear to Wednesday.

    It's winter, we get it.

    It's snowing right now the prettiest snow
    Big fat flakes from the night sky
    Bunches of flakes at a time
    Likes the worlds softest snowballs
    Drift toward my car on the quiet street
    And plop near silently on my heated windshield
    They fall, unhurried
    Like they will go on forever
    No wind, no rush, just
    Snow eternal, it implies,
    Get home, hunker down
    Set those mittens on a radiator and
    Settle down indoors
    Until spring

    Big, fluffy flakes!!

    Loved the poem, Karen. A poet AND the Mayor!!

    Our snowfall started as big flakes around 3 and it's kept on going. I was noting how fluffy and light they were landing on the 8 or so inches from Thursday!!! I caught the latest addition to our cat house watching the snow as it came down Thursday - ah...if we could only read their little pea brains!!! Nutmeg (I'm working on adding her to my gallery) wandered into our yard earlier in November and was spotted by Bibette - I thought it was just another gray squirrel, until I spotted the kitty face. She was scraggly, skinny and, we discovered, loaded with fleas. Trip to the white coats, some flea stuff, and a few square meals, and she's perked right up and is giving everyone!!! a wild run (literally!!!). So her looking out the window at the accumuating snow was almost one of "I'd be out there freezing if not for my finding the right back yard."

    Yes, I am happy knowing Tiger/Charlie is also safe and warm inside out in Stow, not begging at our door!

    Done shoveling, we got about 7 inches. The sky was clearing over head as I finished ...

    2:45 a.m.
    In the wee hours of the morning,
    The world is quiet with only
    The rumble and beep of the plow
    And the scrape of my shovel against the pavement
    And an occasional whump of snow
    As it hit the growing snow pile
    With just enough force to make a dent
    As well as add a bit more heft to
    The small mountain of snow
    And I glance at the sky, the snow has stopped
    Stars begin to appear
    And the last few wisps of cloud
    Race past the full moon, heading
    Quickly out to sea
    To add their snowy benediction to the waves
