I recall a time that I woke up to find snow had covered the garden outside. It looked like everything had a dusting of icing sugar and inspired a poem.

Actually, I love being out in the snow and "struggling", it's no struggle, it's a way of life. Been in snow country most of my life.

This snow is excellent for snowman building, wet and very heavy. I may need to borrow some kids!
The Pirate has this idea of having me stand still outside during the snowstorm and just let the snow stick to me. He would put me out on the big lawn next to the flag pole. That way folks would be able to see me from three different roads. Then when the kids come by to see the snow woman, I could scare them by coming to life and talking to them. I am practicing my "BOO!" My evil mind is working overtime.

We had shaken the snow off the Mugo pine this morning, it got some more. Still snowing.
Oh, that's so pretty!

Thanks! Will have to shake off the Mugo again, it's drooping really bad with the weight.

I droop, too, with the weight on me.

Thank you, Andy.

Have to say though - when I saw you posted here, I thought I'd open up this thread and see pics of sunny beaches in Aruba.

Glad you're back home safe and sound.
