I’m running behind for this week (and last week, and probably next week) but I just checked my facebook inbox for the first time in about 2 weeks and discovered the Weekly Words Challenge assignment for Jan – Feb 2nd.
When I got up [at noon-ish] on Saturday, it had already been snowing for a couple of hours. By 2:30pm when I took this picture
we had 4 inches out of the eventual 5.5 inches of snowfall. It was a lovely dry, powdery snow.
Tuesday night’s snowfall was heavy and wet, but the 5 inches that fell was perfect for making snowmen.
If you are a 6’2″ teenager, it might also be a perfect opportunity to kick the snowman’s head off…
Don’t feel too bad for the snowman. It was originally 5 balls tall and had been created by rolling up snow from the driveway on Wednesday morning. These photos were taken on Thursday afternoon.
We are expecting a big “snow event” this weekend, somewhere between 12 and 24 inches of the terrific white stuff.
I love snow.
**The words for February 2 – 9 are ANIMAL and MINERAL.**
