This week we got a crazy snow storm on Wednesday. Early enough that it shouldn't effect Christmas day its self, but it did put a wrinkle in early holiday travel plans for a lot of people.
It also made for some great pictures. I had a hard time choosing just one for Silent Sunday, so I decided to do a post dedicated to all the great pictures that didn't make the cut for Silent Sunday. I hope you enjoy them.
|This was two hours into the storm. Barely an inch to show for it.|
|About 3 am after 11 hours of snowing.|
|That tree branch was only about three or four feet off the ground. Normally it's eleven feet off the ground.|
|Thunder snow. The lightning was turning the sky green.|
|After about 15 hours of snowing, we had about 9 inches of snow on the ground. The official count at the airport was 12.4 inches.|
|So pretty, and right before Christmas.|
|What's more fun than a slide in summer? A slide covered in snow!|
|The neighbor's magnolia tree lost a few branches because of the heavy, wet snow and high winds.|
|Friday morning (day two after the storm) dawned bright and sunny.|
|The temperature reached 40 degrees, so it was a little easier to get the three inches of ice under the snow cleared off the driveway. Danger Baby helped shovel some too.|
|Danger Baby's mittens are a little big for her.|
|All our neighbors with healthy trees lost huge sections and branches. Our big dead tree? Only lost a few twigs. It is the tree that will not fall.|
|Snowy branches against a bright blue sky.|
|The Angry Midget makes a snow angel.|
|The snow wasn't good snowman snow. It just wouldn't roll up properly, but The Angry Midget did manage to make a snow horse. She's so cute and creative.|
Merry Christmas To You And Your's!
