i know most bloggers have been lucky enough to see some snow this winter - lucky enough that they're probably sick of snow - but i've still been waiting on it. the winter here in southern virginia has been a mild one; so mild in fact, the weather doesn't even warrant a coat most days, and when it has, it's been followed up by days warm enough for short sleeves or skirts with no tights. but yesterday, friends, my luck changed... WE GOT SNOW!!!
it was snowing yesterday before we even ate breakfast, and continue to snow, pretty heavily, all day, but it wasn't until late afternoon that it finally became cold enough for the snow to stick. once it did start sticking, it went from a dusting to a couple inches in absolutely no time! chris, kona and i took a walk for several hours in the snow, and it was just beautiful! it was also neat to be out in the snow where we could watch just how quickly the accumulation was adding up.
we live on a farm which means lots of land, lots of "toys" and no neighbors, i.e. lots of space to play. chris likes doing donuts in the golf cart, and we both like tying a rope to the back of a 4-wheeler, so one can drive, and the other can be pulled down the road and through the fields on a sled until a wipeout, which means we trade places!
since it's supposed to get into the mid-40's today, i'm going to take kona out for another long walk because loves snow just as much as i do! on that note, does your dog get completely nuts when it snows out? kona acts like a maniac, and it's hilarious!
