First Snow


Hubs wanted us to have a snowman, so I am proud to present "Little Man Snow."


We got our first dusting of snow today. It started just as Amanda left for work. I know that snow is not a big deal to most of you, but where I live, it can be a great menace. In fact, insurance companies cringe in fear. Since we don't get that much snow, we are not equipped for it. There is not enough equipment to keep the roads clear, thus causing many fender benders along the way.


Rain has taken over the snow post, so we don't have to worry about getting anything significant,much to Caleb's dismay. School is in!

Love Little man snow!!! If it ever snows in the local mountains this year, we're going to hopefully take Wyatt up to play in it. He's never seen real snow, just manmade at the mall!

I like the snowman! Soo cute. I love looking at pictures of snow. I know it must be hard to drive in it.

Oh, forgot to say I love your little teacups!! I love teapots! I would love to collect them, but I have no room to display them.

This reminds me of a funny story. In 2003 we were travelling through North Carolina on our way home from Florida. We stopped for the night just outside of Charlotte, Huntersville I think it was called. Anyway, we went down to the lobby for breakfast the next morning - it was the Sunday that they caught Saddam Hussein and it was all over the news. And all across the bottom of the TV screen it kept saying "this church closed", "that church closed", just massive cancellations. We couldn't figure it out, we thought, ok, maybe catching Saddam was a really big deal or something! So anyway, we packed the van and I went back in to check out and I asked the clerk how come all the cancellations? She looked at me incredulously and said, "Honey, it's a STORM out there!" Packing the car, I had noticed that there was a bit of wet snow, but...Well, anyways, we got into our van (equipped with brand new Bridgestone Blizzaks - did I mention my husband sells tires for a living?) and drove away. But you're right, the roads there were horrible because there was no equipment out clearing them. Even though it was snowing much harder in the Virginias, the roads were clear. But we still kind of chuckle over how we didn't even notice the "storm"!

lol....that's exactly how it is. Everyone keeps their eyes on the tv for the latest closings and delays. Today wasn't bad, but if we get more than a couple of inches, it paralyzes the city. We just don't have the enough of the equipment to keep the roads clear. The mountains are more equipped, of course, because they get snow frequently. I enjoyed your story and now that I know that you seriously travel in this area, You and your hubby will have to definitely come by! I MEAN IT!!

Maybe I shouldn't have capped the last statement, it might make you think I'm Norman Bates or something. hehehehehe

Or maybe it will set of the Big Brother filters somewhere! Weird how total strangers keep "finding" us.

Oh Anita, don't worry about it! I was kidding......... I made reference to it more than you did. We need that IM feature on here.... I think that would be nice!

Debbie said...

Beth, I thought about you during our "blitz" lol Have you dug out yet?

Beth said...

Yea, we're dug out. We've had 2-3 days with no accumulation, just blowing and drifting. But, tonight we're expecting 2-4 inches more, then 2-4 more for Saturday, and then another 3-5 on Sunday! LOL Another 7-13 inches on top of the 12-14 we've already got...I could pass on it altogether! LOL
