The snow is beyond amazing. Those of you that live in the NE, I can't even imagine what it would be like to have this for months! I know I wouldn't love it then, but this has been such a treat for us. It was reported in my neighborhood that we got 11.2 inches. Seriously people, we almost got a foot of snow. It broke the record for biggest snowfall here. We got lucky and never lost our power. Thank heavens because there has been a lot of people without power because huge trees are falling from the heavy accumulation. I would not have been having such a great time if we were freezing without power!!

When I looked outside this morning, I was shocked to see our crepe myrtle tree branches touching the ground. Lucy was of course ready to head outside immediately, and we did get ourselves ready to go out much earlier today so that I could knock the snow off of the trees in an attempt to save them. I think all of our trees will be okay, but they are really pitiful looking right now. I was in awe of how beautiful our neighborhood looked covered in the white powder. I wish I was a better still life photographer because I do it no justice with my pictures.

It has been melting all day because our temps were above freezing all day, but there is still a lot of snow out there. It will probably take another few days for it to melt away and hopefully Lucy can have one more day playing in it. I can't even begin to tell you how much she loves it. She would run and dive into the snow. She had no concern about being cold or wet. When she asked me why it was falling off the trees and I explained it was starting to melt, she was so sad. She told me about 100 times today that she was going to miss the snow so much when it was gone. Even Annie liked it better today.

Hey Poopsie! Have been downstairs watching some Olympic Opening, and almost forgot to get on here to check the new snow pictures! Beautiful! Hope you get at least another play day out of it before it melts! Annie does look a little better about the situation!

All well here. Hugs and kisses to all, LeeLee

It is pretty to see it on pictures and when you don't really get snow. However, I'm in PA and would gladly send Annie and Lucy some of our snow whenever they want it. How do you like driving in it? I'm glad the Lucy is loving it.
