SnOw cold / SnOw happy


The weather people kept saying it would snow but I just wasn't believing it - it had been raining really hard and steady all night and all morning and was well above freezing. But just as they predicted it began snowing around noon and snowed so thick and pretty for about 4 hours or so. I've been wanting snow all winter long - March really came in with a bang. I didn't really get any good photos and this one that I got of the cardinal all puffed up trying to stay warm was completely by chance. I was talking on the phone to T and looked out the window and saw this beautiful cardinal - he was really voicing his complaint, or confusion, about the weather. This one shot made my day. There's not much prettier than a bright red cardinal in the snow. / waking up to a call from my dad saying that it was snowing in atlanta was not the best alarm clock. athens was still soggy and dreary from the mere rain the night before. my roommate and i trekked to the dining hall and battled sleet as we left. on the way home mom also called me telling me of their good fortune (way to rub it in!). but about thirty minutes later it started snowing outside good ol' morris! it's been steadily snowing ever since. my computer faces the window towards the street and it's been amazing to see the transformation of a scene we see every day. my friend chris decided to pay a visit and pelted my window with snowballs, beckoning me to let him in downstairs. three intense snow fights, two cups of tea, and a snowman later.. it's still snowing! maybe they'll cancel school, haha.

update: classes canceled tomorrow. yes!

both are just gorgeous shots! I didn't believe it would rain either. the snow was lovely while it lasted and ended up not causing many problems. but I'm happy it's gone.

Yay!!! What fun for you both. Cody and I spent some time playing in the snow as well today. Best snow yet!

Awww, we haven't had any snow in a while. I love it when you get to wake up to fresh snow - your whole world transformed over night. Well, I'm glad you got out there and played in it! Fun!!

Great, happy photos! Have fun in the snow!

Oh, we had snow today, too. I couldn't believe it. Two days ago it was a balmy and breeze 55 degrees. Today Sloane made snow angels and drank hot chocolate in front of the fire.

I agree, there is not much prettier than a cardinal in the snow. That photo of Taylor is my favorite so far.

I love both of your pictures!! We have had enough snow to last me the rest of my life, but for some reason, we are being spared this storm!! Enjoy it while it lasts. I suspect it'll all melt quite quickly!

Puna said...

We have all kinds of snow here! It's gorgeous outside...keep it coming!

Revel in it. I did, once, months ago. And now there is so much snow that we literally have nowhere for it. We just keep going up!

Jewels said...

Christina said...

If you two aren't the cutest! Happy snow day to you both.
