2 inches / 7 inches



I wanted snow all winter long... I can cheat and get at least 2 post out of the snow photos can't I? Our snow didn't amount to a whole lot - maybe 2 inches - but I sure did enjoy it's beauty while it lasted. T was so afraid that they wouldn't get any in Athens but they did. Wish I had that day over again.  I would have driven up earlier in the day to take her the camera. (I've had her camera since November and I've gotten pretty attached to it), and we would have gone on grand photo adventures in the snow - she would take epic photos and then our toes and hands  would be so cold that we would walk to a warm and cozy little coffee shop, thaw and talk, then go out for more. Oh well. / sure wished i'd had the camera. we got 7 inches of snow here and classes canceled on Monday - i was so happy, but i was wanting the camera. 7 inches is a lot of snow but in addition to the fun (everybody was out making snow angels, having snow ball fights, building snowpeople) it caused a lot of havoc. trees were falling down everywhere - a lot of people were without power. a huge branch fell from a tree in front of our dorm and the power went out for 2 hours (strange only on the 4th floor, my floor). i don't even have a flash light, so i drew by candlelight - a fake candle that mom gave me, we can't have real candles you know. it was all exciting. i was glad i was at school instead of home.

I try to remember that I can't wait until next time......I never know IF there will be one!! At least you did get some snow though.

This is a wonderful thing between you and your daughter...it's a great way to stay in touch and I hope my own will stay in touch with me so often when she goes away.

Great photos! Even though I am tired of snow here in the Northeast, hearing you ladies talk about it helps me to see it's beauty. But, I still want ours to melt away...now!

Oh, I am so glad that you got your snow. Happy, happy winter. Now spring can come. Yes?

I am so done with snow, but your photos are gorgeous. Thanks for your suggestions today. I think I'm going to fix the water spots and go with the straight out of the camera. I just got Lightroom so I'll play with that for a while too ...
