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!


  1. that's so cute that your cat loves snow. i'm ready for spring too! we haven't seen snow here in boise in a long time--the weather's doing this fake-early-spring thing that's fooling me into thinking it isn't the middle of winter.

  2. The kitty playing in the snow is cute! Our pets are fun to watch at play,they can be very entertaining.

    Good for you for taking a day off from work for a little me time.

    I'm ready for spring too, I have had the winter blues for days! It's time for some sunny days, singing birds, and planting all types of garden goodies.

    This is way I did a post on roses,I am trying hard to cheer myself up!

    Thank you for stopping by.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, you guys! I get the winter blues too, especially when I have to shovel snow. :(

    Emily--Seems unfair that you get teased with spring-like weather! Not much longer though!
