Snow, Snow, Snow – Colorado White Christmas, if it sticks around.


I want to know, do I live in Texas or what? lol Nope, as my husband who lived in Texas would say “we live in a suburb of Texas,” I live in Colorado. I believe we must be trying to be like Texas or perhaps the Weather man is from Texas, but he’s without the accent. Our snow forecast said 7 inches of snow and we did the snow here big time, just like Texas where they do everything big, and we managed to get 18 inches here at my house!

measuring the snow on top of a table outside = 18 inches
2 foot ruler in lowest part of the snow, equals 18 inches

The good news is, it looks like we will have a white Christmas here and the scenery is so very beautiful with the appearance of sugared trees & snow coated houses etc. It’s too bad you cannot see the sparkling on the snow that we see when the clouds clear, it’s so lovely.

For those that are, as the song says, “Dreaming of a White Christmas”, I have put a few seconds of snow up on our blog for you. In case you didn’t notice it, reload the page. 🙂

While I am on to topic of snow, I found some wonderful information & close up pictures of snow online. The flakes are simply amazing to behold in close up.

here are a few examples of the beautiful pictures of snowflake close ups:

For more on the snowflakes, more pictures and info on them, either do a search on snowflakes info, snowflakes pictures or see the site where I found these pictures from Snow Crystals.com

I wish you all Happy Holidays and I hope this finds you all in good health! The next few days I will be doing a lot of baking and hemming a beautiful Christmas Dress (an early gift from Joan, as she knew with all the cancer & other medical bills, I couldn’t get a new dress or have any that fit me… isn’t she sweet?) for the celebrations this holiday season… anyhow you may not see much of me for a bit here… so have fun everyone and please be safe this holiday season!

Love and big hugs,



Dont eat yellow snow! My puppy eats snow close to yellow snow. lol

A word of caution folks, if you eat snow, avoid the yellow stuff! And if your already cold (like my freeze baby puppy is) don’t even eat the snow as it will make you even colder! Right after I laughed and took this shot I brought my poor little puppy in right away to warm him up, poor silly little guy. 🙂
