It’s snowing …

The initial forecast was for a light coating of snow overnight. Tuesday would be mostly rain, then Tuesday night we could see heavy snow.

In the cool gray / blue light of early morning Tuesday, the snow was still falling. I have not tinted these photos in the two collages below, or done anything to make them appear this shade of blue…it is how it looked at that time of the morning.

Very hushed and still, with large fat snowflakes falling steadily, and quite cold…so no rain for awhile yet.

This is the type of storm that they can’t quite predict accurately as if there is no warm up we could get much more snow than they were telling us that we would yesterday. That is most likely why the grocery stores were as crowded as could be. Only a few years ago, in a February, we were told 6 inches and got 18. You never know! :)

I do not decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving but weather like this makes you feel like taking the “Welcome Fall” sign off the porch and putting the “Frosty Friends” one up and maybe moving on to a wreath and so on. :)

As the morning light appeared,  it looked like a winter wonderland forming outside. This is the time of year when the first few snows still feel as magical as they did when one was a child. Of course the magic wears off when you have to shovel, get all of the snow off the car, etc. The light dusting that was forecast appeared to be a good 3 inches of heavy wet snow by 7:30 a.m.

They are still saying that we’ll have a break from snow ( turning to sleet and freezing rain ) and then more snow tonight…well time will tell how much we end up with on this round in the end :)

    Your photos are beautiful! We woke up to snow here too (Southern Maine) and I’m looking forward to heading out with my camera in a few minutes. The “first snow” is always exiting for me, no matter how old I get.
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving,
    Cheryl

    Beautiful photos.

    I normally don’t decorate until Thanksgiving eve or the day after, but this year the holiday is so late that I started.

  3. Balisha says:

    Oh my gosh…these are beautiful pictures. I especially love the ones with the berries.
    We usually start decorating the day after Thanksgiving, but this year we will be celebrating Christmas on the 1st…so we are decorated really early.

  4. Oh, my goodness! The snow is gorgeous! I am envious. We never see snow like this in our area of Texas.

    Question! Is there a way to autopilot “Wow! Your photos are stunning!” into my keyboard so I don’t have to retype them every single time I come here? lol!
    But seriously – look at the top right shot in the first set. Can’t you just see Santa’s sleigh up there, taking one last swoop to be sure he hit every house before the kids wake up in the next ten minutes? I can! And I sooo agree with you – the first snow -like we had this AM- brings me right back to the magical way it looked when I was kid!

  6. Ditto what Joyce said! We had a light dusting this morning too.

    Beautiful pictures! Love the red berries, I would frame that!
    We, also, had snow and I shoveled for the first time. sigh. Forgot how much I loved doing that. (Not at all!!)

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

  8. What a beautiful snow and the snow on those berries is gorgeous! Hope you don’t need to go anywhere…stay safe and warm! Sweet hugs!

    These are simply beautiful, perfect snow pictures. I love the berries in the snow! We are predicted for snow but it doesn’t seem like they really know when or how much!! Thankfully none of us have to travel far for the holiday.

    XO,

    Your pictures ARE exquisite. I had to get up in the middle of looking at them and get a sweater. I do not miss that stuff. Looking at your pictures is the PERFECT way to enjoy snow!
