Beautiful Snow Fall


We had a heavy, wet snowfall starting Friday night and by yesterday morning it looked like a fairy land outside! It was about 7:00 am when I went out to clean off and move my car. I was amazed at how warm it was and because of that the snow had adhered to every single branch on the trees. It was beautiful. So after I came back inside I got my camera and went back out to take some photographs. You can see that with the warm temperatures the snow was already melting where it had been ploughed but the trees were covered with snow. The sunlight was just coming through the clouds so all the snow was sparkling - I wish I could have captured that also!

And such a nice thing happened to me when I went out to clean off my car! I was the first one out in the parking lot and all of the cars looked like big white lumps as they were so covered in this wet snow. When I started to brush off the car I realized that under the surface snow was a deep layer of ice snow and I had to 'bump' the driver side door with my hip to break the ice so I could open the door and start the car.

All of a sudden I heard a voice from the other side of the car saying "Can I help you?" and when I looked over, there was a young man brushing off the other side of the roof of my car! I said "Thank you, that would be wonderful!" and looked over and saw that he was one of the snow removal team and had just started to plough the lot and when he saw me start to clean off my car he had parked his truck behind my car and got out to come to help me! I had never had that happen before - it was great! Soon my car was cleaned off so I could move it and he went back to ploughing - wasn't that a wonderful way to start the day?!

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! Wishing you a weekend of good things!

It looks beautiful. We haven't had much snow this year and what we have gotten melts before the end of the day. I love when it sticks to the trees. What a nice guy to help you clean off your car.

Snow looks so pretty, Babara. But I am glad it fell where you lived and not here. :)
Have a great weekend!

Beautiful photos! If you don't have to be out and about in it--it's nice! And what a nice person to help you! I was health food shopping (wheat allergies)--and I heard some people talking.Sounded as if they were "new" at that world-so I finally heeded the little voice telling me to butt in-young college gal newly diagnosed feeling very overwhelmed and frustrated. Since I've been down this path (8-10+ years now)I was able to encourage and help her! Made me feel good to give her some hope! Have a great week! Blessings, Sharon
