Southern Snowstorm at Kat's Corner.

As I said in my last post, I had to work this weekend. I really don't mind. We spent all those years in the Air Force so we are used to celebrating our holidays when we can. A calender is just a reminder,
not a commandment.
Some time, very late, on Christmas night, it started to snow. It didn't stick to the roads so my drive to work was safe. I have not driven in snow for several years, I had forgotten how pretty it is.
I know, several of my favorite readers will probably laugh at me, but I really am not used to winter any more. I enjoy the beauty, but I hate the cold. I grew up in Northern Utah, plenty of snow there. Here it is still a rare thing. Our storm last winter was quite unusual and quickly melted.
Anyway, yesterday, while I was at work, it continued to snow. Sometimes big fluffy flurries, sometimes sleet. Most of it melted as it hit the ground.
I did not see much of it as we were quite busy. My Sweet Hubby knows me well, he grabbed my camera so he could share it with me when I got home. now I would like to share it with you.

 The barn
 Peace in the snow,
Smoke house,
 This morning, when I finally talked myself into getting up, it was still a winter wonderland out in the yard.
I just had to take the camera out. Cold though, Brrrrr!
 This old boxwood, next to the steps, is snowy.
 Pandora looks cold.
 My Sweet Husbands little corolla is wearing a blanket of snow.
My pickup is mostly bare, I had to clean it off before I drove home last night.
 I don't think Gargoyles like the cold either.
 The magnolia is beautiful year round.
No worries. Isn't this a comforting sight?
My Sweetheart made a big pot of Earl Grey tea and German Apple Pancakes for breakfast.
The fire is toasty and I don't have to go anywhere.
I hope you are all as warm and content as I am.


  1. Oh wow - snow does make everything so pretty and pristine!! But I do know what you mean about the cold. I adore the snow but the cold just wears me down!!

    Thanks for sharing the clip and these lovely pics!!! I especially like the gargoyle looking quite grumpy!

    Awww the pot of earl grey tea and pancakes sounds just the perfect breakfast for such a day!! Enjoy! Take care

  2. nice pics. we had our first white christmas in 29 years...got about 6inches of snow...was beautiful...

  3. Today has seen a thaw and rain most of the day which has cleared away most of the snow that's been here for the last few weeks.

    It's been a magical Christmas as far as winter wonderland goes which is unusual for us here beside the sea.


  4. It really is very pretty, but not in large quantities. We had snow in the upstate too!

  5. A big pot of Earl Grey and German Apple Pancakes sounds like a wonderful way to start out a frosty morning!

    It's more than cold around these parts as we've had below freezing temperatures with some really nasty howling winds on top of the snow that we got yesterday. I don't think we got the accumulations that they claimed we were going to get but it's pretty deep in some of the drifts.

    Seems like it's just going to be one of those winters, huh?

    Hope you and your sweet hubby had a lovely Christmas and I send best wishes for a blessed New Year!

  6. Wishing you and yours a very happy 2011

  7. Wow, Kat, I guess snow isn't too bad for just a brief visit as long as you don't have to be driving in it. I love San Francisco because it doesn't snow here and it doesn't really get too cold or too hot. If I want a short sojourn in snow and cold temperatures, I can drive four hours to beautiful Lake Tahoe. That's plenty good for me!

  8. Hi Kat! That's too much snow for my taste... ;)

    Have a Happy and Successful New Year!! Wish you all the best!!
    Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter Two; now Horus and Sobek wait for you at Kom Ombo... ;)

  9. The snow does make everything look pretty though. Happy New Year, Kat. Hope 2011 brings everything you wish for.

  10. So glad you got some snow, it makes the holidays so magical.;)
    Happy New Year to you and yours dear Kat,

  11. The snow is so pretty ~ and it looks so lovely in photos ~ but I still don't like it. I know we will have it for at least another 3 months. I need to live someplace warm. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Kat and a healthy and happy New Year!

    xo Catherine

    PS ~ I try to never play trivial pursuit (your Christmas post), it's much too hard on my brain.... ;)


So, what do you think? Did you like it? I love hearing from you.
