A2 Hosting still has not fixed the Database after their servers failed AGAIN. A2 Hosting is the WORST!
Because of this, new posts are currently missing and I can only HOPE they eventually recover the table they didn't restore after their latest failure.

First Snow of the Winter

While the furnace finally kicked on the morning before last, and the kitties have been telling me "Itz Cold!" for a week, and they finally convinced me to excavate the wood stove that was buried under tools and summer construction supplies yesterday, and I finally re-set the thermostat to winter settings... I just can't seem to accept that it is winter until the first snow sticks to the ground.

Of course, with it trying to melt at almost the same pace that it fell, it has been snowing steady all morning into early afternoon (and possibly much of last night) just to get to a few inches on the ground.  And now... it finally feels like the official beginning of winter.  Almost like some big fireworks celebration should be going off all day and fuzzy foxes should be doing a conga-line across the yard while drinking champagne.  But with the exception of an occasional thunder-snow or windy ice-storm, the winter here is quiet... very, very quiet.  And maybe that is what I like the most about winter.

The celebration is less fire-works and more softly crackling fire, and less champagne and dancing than hot cider and cuddling with kitties on the couch.  But really... that is so much more my speed.

So here is to hoping we all have wonderful and soothing winter.  Grab that extra blanket and some cocoa and enjoy!

The pictures are wonderful. We have had a steady rain for two days. Leaves are covering the ground and both cars. They look like they are decorated for a fall parade.

Stay warm and of course very cozy.

Well said, the first snow is always special, what you wrote made me cry. It was a good cry, thanks

Looking beautiful up there. We are still in the autumn mode. Leaves of yellow, orange
and red. Pumpkin on the front porch with my scarecrow.
