My Beautiful Bride can be impatient at times, and she has been waiting for snow ever since Thanksgiving.  But she wasn’t waiting for just any snow — it had to be a perfect snowstorm:  The snowflakes had to be big and fluffy, they had to fall during daylight, and the snow had to cling to trees and branches.

I’m happy to say that Betsy was a happy camper on Tuesday.  It started  snowing in the morning and snowed off and on during most of the day.  It didn’t take long for the deck and the golf course to have a cover of white.

The flag in front of the house provided a little color on what was a fairly gray day.  The wind came  up and caused the flag to stand out from the pole.

But the best part was that the trees and bushes all wore a coat of white.

    For us snow kids at heart, there’s nothing quite like a snow that turns everything white and you wake up to a winter wonderland. Great shots of it George.

    The funny thing is that I just love to look at snow pictures like this….they are beautiful. However, I don’t like to deal with it all the time.

    It was a beautiful snow, wasn’t it? I liked, too, that it was so powdery and easy to shovel.

    So glad Betsy got her wish, that you got beautiful photos and that I didn’t get any of that white stuff!

    The flag shot is stupendous! I’m glad Betsy got her “perfect”
    snow!

    I’m so glad Betsy got her snowstorm. Our temperatures have been in the 40’s for the past several days, which has melted some of our snow. Very strange weather for January in Alaska.
