simple is beautiful

Baby It's Cold Outside

Saturday, December 19, 2009

Well, it happened.  



We got the six inches of snow we were promised.



Not just a ploy to sell more bread and milk as I sometimes suspect here in the land of it may or may not snow... for years.

 

Here in Greensboro, when it does snow, we go hog wild.  Sledding and snowball fights are the norm... sometimes in bare feet.


Businesses close for the day.  Roads are sometimes impassable.  We're OK with it because as I said, it doesn't happen often.


We simply carry on at a slower pace,


enjoying the pretty sights.

 
 

Trying to permanently imprint the beauty in our memories, because we never know when it will happen again.

  2. "Trying to permanently imprint the beauty in our memories". This certainly sums it up doens't it, just like the well known "a thing of beauty is a joy forever". Awsome pictures. Thanks

  4. Teresa, those legs and toes belong to a friend of my oldest son. He does look manly though. Sleepover + snowy night = big fun! Black flip flops huh? Brave girl.

  6. Colleen you are too funny. Co-editor has lots of "issues" surprisingly none of them involve the snow. She has made every step that our boys have made today, eating snowballs, and high tailing it around the yard. Refuses to go out in the rain though.

  7. What a fun day! We're under about 14 inches at the moment and the snow is still falling. I love a day snuggled inside like this as well. Enjoy!
