Title: we have snow!
Post by: jules on December 26, 2014, 05:43:18 pm
Around five or six this evening it started raining, then later on after our tea, I looked out and everywhere was white over. Too dark to take pics, but if its the same tomorrow I'll try and take a couple  :smile3:

I just hope now the buses are running so I can do my food shopping  :hmm:

Super!! I hope you can get photos tomorrow.  (http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab352/Mikkwa/Smileys/snowball2_zpsin7yxsmn.gif) I love snow, hate rain.  :lol1:

Down here in Texas we rarely get snow & when it does it is gone within a day or two. We will get ice more often than snow due to the wind chills coming down from the plains states above us.  :sad8: Our temps today got in the 60s like was predicted for Christmas Day. That didn't happen on Christmas and my 4 work nights were quite chilly due to that darn wind chill.  Temps were actually mainly in the low to high 40sF, but felt like the low 20sF.

Here in NY it was 58 on Christmas Eve/ Christmas Morning. I was surprised at how warm it was when I went outdoors @ 2 AM.
 If these warm temps keep up we're going to have to get the lawn mower out. LOL!

Wow, you have snow, Jules!! We don't have any here. It is quite mild today. They did forecast snow for yesterday afternoon, but it didn't arrive!

Well yesterday morning we had snow, then sleet, then back to snow. By nightfall most of it was melted thankfully!  :faint: The news channel said we got 1 1/2" but it didn't look like that much to me. It did get heavier after I took this photo, but it quit falling by 11:00am.  :hehe2:

My front yard & snow covered Beetle.

This old Mesquite tree is actually in my neighbor's yard, but it is the tree Marlene & I visit under~~Virtual Reality~~that is since she lives in New York.  :lol1:

Sorry folks forgot all about taking pics on Saturday, in didn't see a single bus all day so, I shared a taxi with a friend, went shopping and had coffee together, then taxi back. Works out cheaper with two or more  :thumb:

It is now all icy and not shifting, we need rain now  :lol:

It might come down to you Wendy soon. Love your tree De  :hugu:
