Buried Alive

These photos are terrible as they were taken on my blackberry.  And they so do not do this snow storm justice.  But let me assure you, we have officially been blanketed in white here in Upstate NY.  More than a foot in less than 24 hours.  It's definitely snowy.  And cold.  And that's about all it is.  The weather man said it won't "warm up to freezing" for a good week at least.  At what point in my life did the freezing point become "warm?!"  It's seems a lot less pretty after an hour of digging your car out.  Especially when you have to shovel a path just to get to your car. 

Sadie LOVES it though!  She cracks me up.  She gets soooo excited to run and leap into big piles of fresh snow.  And she bites and licks it as we take our walks.  And dips her little nose in the snow and flicks it into the air.  Little silly girl!

My backyard.  Covered in snow.  I think the urns look like cake pops.

A little evergreen hidden by lots and lots of fluffy snowflakes.

The difference between the north and south is that we are fully prepared to handle mass quantities of snow.  So we will be up and moving just fine by tomorrow morning.  And all the fluffy white stuff will be a black mess in a few short hours.

I hope that you and Sadie stay warm!

You are SO right about the degree of warmth!

It is beautiful outside this morning. Hard to believe that it as a total whiteout this time yesterday.

Have a great day ~

Yes, you are definitely right about the difference between the north and the south. We got less then an inch of snow and 1/4 inch of ice and I just woke up to my fourth snow day in a row.

I've noticed the same difference between London and New York. In London 6 inches of snow paralyzed the airport for four days in New York that would be maybe a few hours of delay.

Stay warm and good luck digging out!

Did everything clear as quickly as you predicted? I hope you are WARM! IT was a high of 54 today in Tampa, and we were all SHIVERING!!!!!

Oh I was so sad to hear our weather guys talk so excitedly about it hitting 30 today. Hello I live in Memphis not the North.
Glad you got to enjoy the snow for a bit. We actually have some left on the ground which is so not the norm after about 2 days it is usually gone because it has warmed back up.

my sheltie max loves the snow too, he'd spend all day eating it if we'd let him. He also loves the rain, weirdo.
