First Big Winter Storm This Year

Our first winter storm on this season hit us last night.
 
Our back yard view of our pond.
 
We have had several storm warnings all year long with the snow but the storms always went to the north or south of us leaving us with little snowfall this year. But yesterday the weathermen were correct and our city had a snowfall of 10 l/2". We did have some good high winds so there is drifing. It really is beautiful. Mom always likes one big storm then she says now get us to spring. We can now look forward to spring around the corner and enjoy the beaufitul sights of winter while we wait.
 
First encounter with snow.
 
How nice that the mom brought some of the white stuff that is covering our yard into the house for me to check out. I don't understand why the mom and dad don't realize that things are so different outside this morning. They just act like it is another average day. Don't they see that everything is white?! What the heck.
 
This is the first time the mom brought the white stuff inside for me to check out. I really liked tasting it, was nice and cold. I do have to mention and don't really like to point fingers but the mom or the dad are not honest. You see I went back to eat more of my snow and it was gone. Now there are only three of us here and let's just say I didn't take it. Of all the nerve! I am going to keep a close eye on them to make sure nothing else of mine disappeared.
 
This snow stuff will be nice in the summer when everyone is outside and gets thirsty. They won't have to come inside to make a cold drink. Pretty cleaver huh?
 
Stay safe and warm today if you are in the snow storm stuff.

Lots and lots of snow. 10 1/2" is a lot. Hope it's the last of the season.

Wow, Gracie, that is quite a bit of snow you all got. Very pretty!

Watch out for that snow ... it is very sneaky, and knows how to disappear when you are not looking.

Hugs!
