Christmas Snow (With Photos)
(Sorry if you visited and the pictures were missing - seems like I had to buy more storage to add photos to my blog and it took all day to process my purchase!)
Looks like the bulk of the country got some snow for a Christmas gift this year! We got 8" but just an hour west of us in the higher mountains they got over 2 feet! We normally get 12" all season! It started on Christmas morning and was very pretty - a nice snow to walk in. Our home faces a lovely pasture with ponies and goats that belongs to our neighbor. The ponies enjoyed the early snow but when the winds picked up and the temperatures dropped they headed for the barn and we have not seen any of them until today.
Garren Creek meanders through the pasture and follows our road for the seven mile length of our street. Once the snow got heavier I took a walk down the street a ways to get some shots of the creek.
The snow is lovely but being house bound for three days while the DOT crews tried to plow the county out was not fun plus losing power off and on. It is supposed to be 50 degrees by Friday this week! Hard to believe. Hope you all are safe and warm until the snow removal guys get to you. And lucky you who don't have any of this white stuff!
Question for my readers - I am being told that I have exceeded my photo upload quota and must buy more storage - is this normal? Do I have to purchase more or is there a way around it? I have my photos on CDs plus on the hard drive - if I take them off the hard drive will this free me up? Thanks for your help! (Well I went ahead and bought more storage - the easy way out!)
