The Big Surprise

Good Morning, Folksies!
Yesterday the Valentine fairies surprised everyone here in my little corner of the world. We got snow. It was not in the forecast. Don't you love it when that happens? It began snowing Wednesday evening, just little flurries here and there. By 10:30 it was a virtual whiteout it was coming down so fast. When I awoke in the morning, it was everywhere.

For those reading this that are in areas hard hit with all the white stuff, I know you are tired of seeing it. But for this little area, it was exciting. We haven't had much this year. Just a little dusting the other week. Not enough to do anything with. This time we got close to 4 inches. Of course by mid afternoon it was gone except under trees. It was the perfect type of snow. Light, fluffy, great for snowballs.

Because it was such a surprise, the roads weren't scraped or salted until late morning. I didn't work (a personal yippee for me) and hubs was home as well. We walked down the hill to my folks. Even my 84 year old Daddy was impressed with God's ability to screw up the weatherman's prediction of sunny but cold. Yep, I always say that God's the weatherman. Ask Noah.

Love your pictures and the quote (as always) from your Daddy!!!
My husband's Dad always said -"There are 3 men you don't trust...the weatherman the fisherman and the woman!" I never really liked the last part, of course, but it is kind of funny!!
