Another Day Off From School?

Yesterday, when I checked the forecast for the next 36 hours, I paid specific attention to the "predicted precipitation". Tuesday night into Wednesday . . 10%. Some days I wish the expectations on me were as low as they are for Meteorologists.

Anyway, when Mason got up to eat at around 4:00 this morning, I caught a glimpse of the winter wonderland outside the front door, and I felt compelled to photograph it before it was marred by sun and little shoes.

The little boxwood plants actually look un-tacky when dusted with powder.

Yesterday the doors on the cars were frozen shut. I imagine more of the same is in store for us today.

I love the clean lines you get when the snow settles on the patio furniture.

Shelter was probably at a premium last night . . I wonder if the bluebirds roosted in the box?

No baths this morning, that's for sure.

Enjoy your day off today if you're lucky enough to get one!

Oh, well. It was nice while it lasted (until noon, right?). The snow on Wednesday night was so pretty and when I went to bed just before 11, everything was white. Very nice.
