Yes, we had snow! We are just about an hour east of San Francisco, so snow is not something we see at our elevation, which is just above sea level, so you can only guess at the excitement we all felt when we woke up to SNOW!
What is interesting is that the snow didn’t come down on my city, but only on the neighboring cities! I’m not sure exactly why, but the only reason I can think of is that we are just a few feet lower, and it missed us. As we drove up the street, we could see the snow on the mountaintops, and when we got to the corner of the intersection and looked to the right, we couldn’t believe what we saw…there were blankets of snow right in front of our eyes!
For all of you bloggers that are showing photos of snow in your front or back yards, this is nothing, but for us, its wonderful! Its a miracle we didn’t get into an accident…I was snapping pictures as I was driving, often veering off to one side of the road altogether, and at some places, almost stopping dead in the center of the street! People understood, though…the drivers were all smiling at each other…we were gazing out our windows to catch every glimpse we could, knowing it wouldn’t last long. Amazingly, we still had snow on the mountains this morning, due to temps in the 20’s last night, but what had landed on front lawns was long gone.
Here are some photos. I was absolutely giddy…I just couldn’t stop saying “Look, honey, look at that beautiful snow!” And he would say “mmm-hmmm”
If it would snow at about 40 degree or warmer weather, I would welcome it…I love snow, but its the cold I don’t like!
Here is a snowflake that’s all warm and fuzzy…it was made by my good friend, Lynn, at www.lynnslovelies.blogspot.com . She does beautiful crochet work, and she made this for me as a gift…
when I bought this gorgeous scarf…I LOVE it! The photo does not do it justice…its much prettier in person, and so soft…it snuggles right around your neck like a soft blanky. I was going to model it for you, but hubby couldn’t get a good photo of me, and I didn’t want to ruin the prettiness of the scarf, so I hope you can tell just how lovely it actually is. It arrived in only a few days after ordering it from Lynn’s etsy shop, so if you need some beautiful handmade gift items, be sure to visit her and see what other lovelies she has to offer.
I do hope you are all enjoying these days before Christmas, preparing your hearts for a celebration of the birth of our Lord.
God bless everyone... continue to pray throughout this season for our military and their families, for the lonely and hurting, for the sick, and for the lost that need to know the miracle of Christmas Day, the day that our Savior, Jesus Christ, was born.
