FRESHLY FALLEN SNOW

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?  -J. B. (John Boynton) Priestley

We finally got our first snowfall of the season.  I love how it transforms the dreary world of winter into a beautiful thing to behold.  Tippy seems to be amazed that the world suddenly changed.  She loves to eat it, play in it,take walks in it, lay in it, etc.

Here are some pictures from our morning walk.  I had hoped to find tracks of other animals that had been out and about, but it was just me, Tippy, and one lone rabbit.

It’s still snowing here, so another walk may be in the making.  We certainly won’t be going anywhere in the car today, as this “big snow” has shut everything down and it is dangerous to drive.  (If you don’t understand that statement, you don’t live in the south.)

  1. I couldn’t help but laugh at your last sentence! We are expecting (it’s like a 50% chance) a little bit of snow this evening and things are shutting down here too. Hopefully in the next couple of days we will get some decent (for our parts at least) snowfall and can get some winter weather walks in with Maggie too 🙂 Beautiful pictures, by the way! Glad Tippy is having fun.

    1. Thank you! We only had the one fairly big snow this year. It’s been unusually warm. But, it is E. TN, so we could get another one before it’s all over and done for the year.
