Just the right amount of snow.

Last weekend we went to visit my family in Northamptonshire. On Friday morning we woke up to a whirling blizzard, much to the delight of both children. When the snow was no longer falling, we wrapped them both warmly and headed out for a walk. TTB was hopping with excitement about walking in real snow, and the chance to “hear it crunch”. It was the first snow TTG has ever walked in and she did very well, her tiny footprints looked so sweet pressed into the snow.

We didn’t walk for long as it was windy and cold but TTB’s enjoyment was wonderful to see. We often moan (as a family) that the snow gets in the way of us travelling to see each other, and wish that we would have a sudden snowfall when we are all together that we can enjoy and then melts away by the end of the day. And this time it did! We were all together to have our “second Christmas” having not been able to see each other on real Christmas Day, and snow on Second Christmas was lovely. Just the right amount of snow. Nothing like the wonderfull photos of Portland, Oregon that I saw on instagram of course, but just enough snow for us!

    How wonderful! Gotta love a pair of wellies with handles! That animal paw print photo does funny things when I look at it….sometimes it appears sunken i.e. correct, and then my brain flips it to standing proud, and even though I know that’s wrong, I can’t get it to go back in again….anyone else?

    Lovely story and pictures. Yes that was just the right amount of snow. When I saw the paw print it was standing up. Wondered how did they do that? I haven’t had my morning tea yet which probably explains it, lol .

    I was happy not to be in the snow!

    That “wonderful” snow in Portland Oregon brought our city to a standstill for nearly 7 days! So lovely the first few days. We’ve NEVER seen snow stay more than two/three days here, and it’s NEVER been near or below freezing for nearly 2 weeks EVER! But since I’m retired and the fridge/freezer were full, I stayed in the house the longest I ever have in my adult life.
    A new kind of wonderful! So quiet and restful. Lots of needlework and reading and blog hopping! Now it’s back to “normal” Oregon winter weather – in the mid to high 40 degrees F. and lots of rain. But watching that much snow fall at first – 8 inches in 24 hours- was
    amazing. Then the lovely white blanket that stayed unmarked and pristine for almost a week as schools and businesses for closed. No garbage pickup, minimal mail service and so much winter quiet. I was able to feed birds and squirrels off my porch, which kept the cat happy to. Hottest summer last year and coldest winter this year (and Trump for Pres.) What next?!!
