obligatory snow pictures - round two, take 2

If you live in the south, it is required to celebrate every snowflake that falls from the sky...because it could be 3 years before you see another one.  Today in Chattanooga it snowed, sleeted, rained, and is now snowing again, and I couldn't be happier.  It's warm enough that the roads aren't a mess, but cold enough that the snow is sticking on the grass.  Yay!!

Edit 2/14/14:
It's really hard to pick which pictures to post when you have 8 snow covered acres, and you explored half of it.  I was like a kid in a candy store (or better yet, me in a liquor store).  Do you know how many times I said to myself 'look, that tree is so pretty!' on my walk yesterday??  A LOT.

Since I originally posted snow pictures, we got a  TON of snow, and my first pictures now look pathetic.


Yay for snow!!! My freshly painted house looks so good in the snow.  Yes I'm bragging. Getting my house painted was a drawn out disaster I have decided not to blog about.  It's done and we're moving on, and it looks so good :)

I was fascinated with the drooping evergreens.  When I showed these pictures to my grandmother, she made up stories about each of the trees.  Some of them looked like old women, some men standing tall, and some looked dressed up to go to a party.  It was really cute.

With so much snow in the trees, all the pathways caught my eye too. 

And of course, I can't dump a bunch of snow pictures without posting pictures of the pond.  It didn't freeze, but hey, neither did the roads!

Yes, the best hing about this snow, was that the temperatures pretty much stayed just above freezing, so the roads were slushy in spots, but there was no ice! As such, I only ended up with a 2.5 hour delay into work (and just one day), but it was just enough time for me to get out and enjoy the snow.

I have to admit, snow like this, once every 3 years or so, is one of the many reasons I love being back in Chattanooga.


  1. Hi Emily,
    Thank you for your comment on my blog. Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!
    I haven't been feeling well lately - just a sore throat and kind of draggy feeling. Not much energy for anything, though I did get out yesterday to photo Hellebores buds for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Our weather has been unusually cold. Even my Daffodils have barely poked up their heads - no blooms yet. We were all set for a beautiful snow Tuesday, but it was just an inch, maybe less. It barely covered the ground, and soon melted.
    Your snow photos are wonderful! Glad it was safe to get out and enjoy!


Sooooo, the spammers have finally discovered my blog. I'm not sure if that means I've 'made it', but it does mean that I have turned on comment moderation for my older posts. Don't worry though, I get the notifications quickly, and promise to read and publish anything that doesn't include random comments or suspicious links.
