December 4



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Up till last night, we only had a dusting of snow one time. That's all changed.  We got 11 1/2 inches of snow between 7:30 pm and 6 am.  The weather people said this storm centered over our little town and another one to the north of us and we really got hit.  Others in the county got 2 - 6 inches.
It was a nasty drive in to work this morning. I followed the tracks someone else left and prayed I didn't meet any other traffic.
This little tree is on our patio at work.

Ok stop with the snow already. I'm not ready for it yet. Too late I just went outside and winter has arrived. In my front yard I have some cool and rare trees but one of my favorites in the Japanese flowering cherry tree. It is from a cutting of the ones I sat under in Japan and DC. We make it a point to have a picknick under the "Sakura" tree when it is flowering. It is a Japanese tradition. But we also do it when we get a big snow like that. It is always a great picture untill the boys kick the tree at the end and it all falls down on us.

I asked Zack this morning how much snow he had gotten and he said there is maybe an inch. What a difference. I sent him pictures of our snow.
Smiles!
