Snowy Sunday.

Good Afternoon, we had a big surprise this morning when we looked out to about 2 inches of snow. It is now after three o'clock and we still have it all and there is still not signs of a gritter road or pavement . I have not ventured out today as it has been looking very slippery for walking and as we were only needing a Sunday paper I did not bother going. Stuart cannot go out walking in this kind of weather at all to it has been a day indoors for us. Fortunately we have plenty of thing to occupy us. This is about our usual time of year for our first fall of snow I remember on year it snowed on this particular Sunday in November and it stayed on the hills around us for three weeks. When I see the snow like this I wish I could be out sledging like I did when I was a child. Living in Dundee there were plenty of hills for sledging on we used to play down a road (well on the pavement) that was very steep we had great fun the only thing was people trying to walk up or down the hill found it a bit slippy to say the least and we got in trouble but we were only young lol.I suppose I would be the one complaining now oh dear I am getting old. Don't like that at all.
That's about it for today have been struggling with this entry for some reason another and am still not sure about it having problems with photo bucket and the html thing once I paste it into my journal here's to what this will be like this time but if it is not right you have my apologies but this is my last attempt today.
Till next time. Love Joan.

the snow on the flowers is a nice touch but says it is too early for snow. Stay warm and dry..

You still had flowers for the snow to land on? Our flowers here are long gone. We've had snow all week. It's been very mild the past few years until January so this is unusual for me. Ugh, I hate cold weather. Keep warm. xxx

Your phots came out beautifully Joan, snow looks so pretty but I don't venture out into it unless it's an emergency. Luckily we hardly ever get any! Do you use the second code down under your pictures which says 'Link'? I use that and have no trouble with Photobucket, I never use the HTML code for it, 'link' adds the photos straight away to the entry. Stay warm up there in the frozen north! Jeannette xx

I love the pictures of the snow upon the trees. We had a few snowflakes a couple of days ago. It didn't last long.
