Silent Snow

I took the day off from work today, but I'm sort of stuck in the house because it's snowing again! The pictures above are from the storm earlier this week. We got about 6 inches of snow, not nearly as much as the northeast and other parts of the country, but enough to spell disaster for people in the DC/northern VA region who seem to have trouble on the road on a dry sunny day, let alone an icy, wet one. My rosemary bush was drooping under the weight of the snow, but it bounced back after brushing it off. The rest of the trees were also sagging under the weight and I worried about them coming down. During last year's February blizzards we lost FIVE trees around our house. Thankfully nothing happened this time around.

We've discovered something funny about the cat--he LOVES the snow! We barely open the back door and he's out on the deck bouncing and jumping around. When he sees snow on the ground, he sits by the door and meows to be let out. It's pretty cute!

OK, the snow is pretty but I've had enough. I'm ready for spring and seed planting!
