It has been an exciting time here. Old Man Winter decided to grace us with a surprise snowfall! We have not had snow since 2009.

Nothing was predicted for our area except for maybe some flurries. Well the flurries started up around 8 p.m. Thursday and didn't let up till about 3 a.m. Friday morning.

I am a kid at heart so I stayed up watching it and going out to take pics through out the night.

I was able to catch a few hours sleep but was up at the crack of dawn. Talk about a dreamy display!

By the time daybreak arrived the snow had already started to melt. Over night we had a wind chill of 24 but once the wind let up that was it. It has not been cold enough here consistently to cool the ground so it was just a matter of time before it all started to melt away.

Even though the snow was all melted for the most part by noon it certainly made for a beautiful winter wonderland while it was here!

Did you receive any surprise snow from Old Man Winter?

  2. Pretty!! I know it was a treat for you. We get snow here about 3 times a year. This snowfall was a lot more than predicted. I just did a new post this morning. We have a least 10 inches and not melting!

    1. Certainly a rarity for us. I remember it only snowing a handful of times growing up in Ga. It seems they get snow now more frequently.

  3. Pamela,
    No snow in my area of north Texas, but we did have a hard freeze, 24°, Thursday night. Your photos are so pretty. Snow surely sets the mood for Christmas...

    Merry Christmas,
    Judith

  7. What fun! I used to live in your area, so I remember how amazing it was when it snowed one Christmas Eve. Your photos are beautiful. The snow on the wreath could be a Christmas card.

    1. Christmas Eve 2004, we came out of the church after our candlelight service. The snow was softly falling. We are a small, very old country looking church in Houston. It looked like a classic Christmas card photo. Absolutely beautiful.

    2. Yes I remember that as well! That was my son's first Christmas. We didn't get more than a light dusting where we lived so we drove down to Seabrook on Christmas day where they had a few inches just to get his picture in the snow.

  9. Well, if you have seen on the news the Buffalo Bills played football in a snowstorm today in my neck of the woods, Orchard Park, NY. For us it's a scene that is quite familiar and so everyone was out and about as usual. It is beautiful when it is a light dusting and since I've lived in Western NY all my life, I can't imagine a Christmas without snow, although, believe it or not it has happened!
