Thanks for sharing the pictures of your first snow.

Thank you, I really appreciate it. If you want to laugh it's ok, my husband said it was pretty funny looking and it didn't look like a snowman. But that's ok. At least we tried... It was sticking to our cloves more than it was sticking to the snowball. So that's why we only made a little one. We had flurries almost all day.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

If it makes you feel better we have never been able to make a decent snowman since we moved here, and this is our 6th winter. It's not you, it's the snow.

We have been able to sled, twice. But in order to do that you have to move FAST before it melts.

Still snowing lightly this morning. It's the dry, powdery snow, not good for snowballs or snowmen, just good for blowing in the wind. The only thing covered in snow is the decks...oh but I can hear the kids asking "Are schools closed??"

Thanks for the pics!

I spent much of Sunday having to run between Lincoln County and Celina...it was snowing some in most of the areas I had to go through. For the most part it was sticking in most places just on rooftops...

I saw enough as a kid growing up to last me for the most part. I'm at the point where I like the idea of snow a whole lot better than the actuality. I still enjoy flying to it, skiing on it or snowmobiling waaaaaay too fast on it, than leaving it behind and grilling out on my deck...

You can have video on demand...I think what I really want is snow on demand...

I like the idea that we get a little snow and by the end of the day it gone. And don't get it too often. But we live close enough that if we want to drive for about one hour to go play in it, we can. I wouldn't be able to stay locked up in the house for days because it snowed a foot or more. Although it wasn't as cold yesterday with the snow as it was today with the wind.

Looks fun! We drove through some heavy flurries out between Dunlap and Spencer on Sunday but nothing stuck. Got home and you'd never know there'd been flurries. Woke up this morning to more snow that actually stayed on the ground a few hours, but again just a dusting. Didn't even stick to the car enough to make a snowball. Bummer!!

Looking forward to real snow, but don't think I'll ever see as much as I'd like to here in middle TN!

This is colder than even last year. And I actually saw flurries last month. As bad as winter was last year, and it was a record breaker, this season may have it beat.

Staying warm and worrying about the heating bill is not fun and unfortunately I know far too many people that are going to be doing that this year. And with the TVA we have some of the lowest heating costs in the country! 'Tis the times.

When it gets cold like this I always remind myself that I could be up north where it is much worse, and if it is this bad here it is actually not too great in Florida, either.

Oh, that and the thought that spring is about three months away.
