Snow storm?

The snow falls not softly, but fierce, a cold wind cuts across and going out feels like running along and icy ridge. Driving is treacherous and we have had already a fair share of delays this past week and this adds to everything. I wish there will not be another day off school due to the weather conditions! I can see the trees already bending again under the loads of wet snow....It has increased over the last hour and I just hope, it will slow down soon.

It does look beautiful too, and sitting here inside, where it's warm,  but I feel for the poor souls out there without a home... Don't forget to give something this season, there are many charities and right now I drop of food items and clothing, we can spare, at the local collection station. There are also the firefighters and the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and churches, all ready to take donations. Please be generous.

In front of our house around 4:30PM....

And just 20 minutes later.....

Oh, mother nature! What's next?

  1. Hello Victoria:
    Poor, poor you! This really does seem to be a case of adding insult to injury. But, oh so pretty - but we know that is not the point!! Take care.

  2. I'm so sorry you are getting another round of bad weather! I hope your power stays on and your family stays safe.

  3. Victoria,
    I too posted photos of our first snowfall and in my outing this morning to deliver our daughter to school and my husband to the train, I felt a sense that we were all feeling a bit kinder and driving a bit gentler. I do think all these power outages, storms are good for kindness. Everywhere I go, people seem to be helping, giving and caring.

  4. I agree, it's beautiful and fierce and we are moving all a little closer together for help and mutual support.
    Wouldn't it be nice, if we would not need that extra nudge from nature to do so?
    How fast we are getting used to the good life afterwards....
