Snow is Beautiful!

DSC_0791Yep I said it.  Snow is beautiful! I love how it blankets everything in white and it is so peaceful.  I know it is cold and windy and our windchill is down to -14 degrees today, but I still love looking outside and just staring at it.  It also offers a great excuse for boots, baggy sweatshirts and lots of hot tea. So a farmgirl has got to ask “what is wrong with that?”

We took some pictures of our home with the snow that covers it right now. We have named our homestead “Big Sky Acres” since we can see sunrise and sunset from either porch; Big Sky Acres (BSA) is covered in white and well I just could not be more pleased to see this sight.

The sunrises and sunset are so gorgeous amidst the sea of white in our view. Don’t you agree?

Our driveway is pristine as no car can enter or exit!

Here are some outstanding snow pictures from all around BSA.

Jasmine loves the snow but she does contemplate the cold before venturing off the porch.

As I look at hubby’s mom’s 1960 something VW Bug, I wonder if this is the coldest it has seen; somehow I doubt that.

The shingles for the new sunroom are waiting for warmer days to get installed on the roof.  Right now they are in a deep freeze.

And Gus the Rooster is standing tall and looking regal on top of the pole barn.

Our deck is not only covered in snow but that is my commute every morning.  My office is above the garage and the entry point are these outside stairs.

It is windy heading up there as you can see!  It is a short commute, but I am bundled up traversing it.

And while I am enjoying a true winter, I love all the seasons.  As I look dreamily out over the white, I fantasize about green and vegetable starts and sweaty days in the garden.

If you are in one of the 31 states that is in the deep freeze, stay warm today. I hope you have a fireplace, a furnace, a hot bubble bath and some hot tea.

Happy Unleashing (to stay warm),

    • Hi Candy! The snow is so pretty! I used to live where there is not snow and I truly missed it. I am a 4 seasons girl. I am very careful on the stairs. Boots in the snow and if ice is expected computers come down into the house the night before! It is actually really warm and toasty up there so I love working up there.
