All a Flutter about Snow....

Yes! We got snow this weekend. After watching the weather channel the past few weeks and seeing everyone else get snow we were feeling a little left out. Like the wall flower at the dance. We were not asking for a lot just enough to have a little fun with. Friday night the snow began. At two o' clock in the morning we had snow on the ground and it was coming down like crazy. Big fat wet flakes.

Last chick an I got out the cameras and took tons of night time pictures, then off to bed to get up early. The beach is the first place we headed, then across the inter coastal, the marina and yacht club. The roads were slushy but fine, the landscape beautiful. Here are just a few of the pictures I took. Hope you stand a few more snow pictures.

Snow at the beach is always so much fun. Everyone comes out to build a snowman.

The Inter Coastal Waterway is quiet. All the boats are locked up, the docks tied down, only an occasional bird is seen. The contrast of the snow on the grass is quite beautiful. The snow melts quickly as there is a lot of heat from the ever changing landscape.

Over at the Yacht Club the boats are covered with snow. It is so strange and quiet. This is normally an area full of activity of coming and goings. The boats seem rather sad. Waiting to be used.

Home from the beach the cherry trees are just beautiful. They are covered in snow. They look like spring brides covered in lace.

What great photos. I don't think I've ever seen snow on the beach! My fav is the last one of the Cherry Tree w/snow on it. That would could be in a magazine!!

Oh these are lovely, E! My grands in Jacksonville, NC had a blast yesterday playing in the snow. My DIL is a professional photographer and she got some great shots of them playing. As Nana, I've already requested the high-res versions to print out LOL! I love your pic of the cherry trees; that one is a definite 'print out and frame' one in my opinion. Glad you enjoyed the snow and personally, I'm glad we missed out on it here in north/central MS. The snow is gorgeous but the slushy, icy aftermath is not my favorite.

Hi Elizabeth,
Beautiful snow pictures... the last storm missed us but all the schools closed because we were supposed to get hammered!

Dianne said...

wonderful photos, thanks for sharing! the whole country is snowed in, I guess...except for Hawaii...love the sculptural quality of snow covered trees.

Elizabeth Golden said...

Thanks Dianne. We were lucky just to get a smidgen. It is so beautiful. We are back to normal this Monday already.

I love snow...everything becomes so still after the snow. Sound seems far away, muted. Your pictures are all beautiful, they tell the story of your day. The cherry tree is amazing...
Have a soft day!

Beautiful shots. Like so many others, I especially like the snowmen on the beach. The juxtaposition of the calm, blue waters/bright sunny sky and the snow people really makes it interesting. On our Lake Michigan beaches we could make lots of snow people but the water in the background would be icebergs! :)

We have barely had any snow this year -- not even enough to shovel off the sidewalk! I'm fine with that though. If only the cold would go away too!
