Our World: Tennessee’s Snow and Cold

As most of you know, Betsy loves snow and never gets enough of it.  (She obviously never had to trudge through a foot of the stuff in early morning darkness to milk the cows!).  Well, she finally got some snow last week.

We didn’t get a lot of snow — maybe a couple of inches — but it did look pretty on the fairway behind our house.

The bare trees made intricate shadows on the fresh snow.

There was very little traffic along the road in front of our house.

Since the coldest temperatures in more than twenty years accompanied the snow, no one was sitting on the bench in our front yard.

    I think your got as much snow as we did at the beginning of winter! Yours will not last as long as our and get all tired and ragged, which is nice, I think. The melt will be lovely on all the things you grow!

    Beautiful! This is just the right amount of snow,of course if that was all we got,we would be worried about lack of moisture in spring.

    Lovely scenes especially the patterns on the snow. Hope your bride is happy with the snow.

    Ah, so pretty, George. It’s nice to live next to a golf course, where the snow can remain clean and beautiful until it melts. We had some of those record lows, too…but about a foot more snow than you got.

    Hello George, haven’t been here for a while, but it doesn’t mean i forget yours and Betsy’s blogsites. Those are lovely photos, i have the view of your house in my head from below up, so that stuck. I think that was Betsy’s photos and more close-up. But your shots no matter how lovely really look cold. I am glad i am not born in those parts of the world. Keep warm and safe, the two of you!

    I’ll have to admit that those are beautiful photos. I really do love snow pictures but I don’t like dealing with it. I love the picture from your front porch. The lonely bench is also beautiful

  19. Rajesh Says:
