WHITE CHRISTMAS

I remember loving to have snow on Christmas day as a child. Also, I remember that it snowed almost every year on Christmas Day. However, looking back at the historical data, they “claim” that it only happens here about one out of every ten years. Someone’s memory is wrong and I would like to think it is theirs!

This year didn’t disappoint though. We had about 2.5″ – 3″ of snow last night that laid on everything. It had started out as rain and then the temperatures dropped, so there was a coating of ice underneath. That made driving treacherous this morning, so mom and I didn’t get to go to the family gathering at my niece’s as planned. We’ll just have to go to each separate household at a later date. I was able to walk to mom’s and spend some time with her, eating a sandwich and working on a jigsaw puzzle for a while.

As you know, Tippy loves the snow. Even though the temperature was 18°F, I wrapped up good and took her for a walk into the neighbor’s field. Now that is love! 😉

I thought you might enjoy a few pictures. It was gorgeous. As always, the pictures don’t do it justice.

Look how pretty, mom.

I love the reflections in the neighbor’s pond when it snows.

Tip of the day: If you have on a coat with a hood, but don’t have the hood on, and you walk under snow covered tree branches, DO NOT put your hood on when the wind starts blowing.

  1. Very pretty! I bet Tippy was in heaven. I’m amazed you had such cold and snow where you are southwest of us, while here in MA it was mid-50s and SO MUCH rain that all the previous 14″ of snow melted overnight and the rivers and streams are roaring. Strange weather!

    1. It is strange weather indeed. It was really pretty but should be mostly gone by tomorrow when it will be 50°F. That’s one thing about TN weather…we get to see the snow, but it doesn’t stay on the ground for long. Of course, that also means no one knows how to drive in it, so it is safer to just stay home for a couple of days.

  2. I am freezing here in FL. Temps went down to the 20’s. Of course, that is for one day and then we will be into the 40’s. The snow photos are so pretty–especially that reflection.
