Snow, snow and more snow.....oh my!


I received these pictures in the mail from Jannie showing the snow that they received in Colorado yesterday and today.  Jannie lives close to where our daughter, Jenn lives and you can see some pictures from her on her blog....Leftsox.
What makes this so amazing is that I went shopping today and I had the top down on our convertible.  We've also had the air conditioning on to get rid of the humidity.  When I say things like this to Jenn, she gets upset with me.....I can't figure out why.  :o)

 I do remember snows like this in Pennsylvania when we lived there and I do miss walking in it at night, but that's it.  Driving in it is the worst!!!!
 Does it seem to others that they just don't get the quantity of snow that we use to.  I remember drifts several feet tall and we used them to make forts.  Oh the joys of childhood when your only hope was that you got the day off from school to play in it before it melted or got dirty.
I do envy those who get these beautiful snows on Christmas Eve and wake up to a fairyland.  
Well I've been working on the Trousse aux Fleurs Bleues by Virginia Gousse Fevrier and hope to have it finished sometime this week.  There are two parts of stitching to it and I'll post a picture when I finish the first one.  It's done in beautiful blues and greens and I'm really enjoying it.  
I hope everyone has had a wonderful saturday so far and that you get to do at least a few stitches on whatever you're working on.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Great pictures and I can't thin why your daughter would be upset at you driving with the top down and the air conditioning on lol. We here in Ireland don't get snow like that an inch on rare occasion is all lol

Living in the south my entire life, I have never experienced a snow drift. Just a dusting is usually enough to throw us in a frenzy. Well...off to stitch and enjoy our "spring" weather.

happy stitching...

Lovely pics of the snow. We have not had much here but I think that is because we got this years' last year! It's more like springtime!

I have been saying lately to people that we had snow high enough to make forts that we could walk into, like igloos I guess. It's funny you would do a post about this! Oh well, we are having no usual winter here, we always get a lot of snow in this part of MA.
Hugs,
Susan

My sister lives in franktown, co and has 3 1/2 feet of snow. We had a dusting today that was gone by 2:00. I miss it. And yes, I grew up in PA and I'm sure we had tons of snow. I remember Thanksgivings with lots of snow. I miss it.
