What is all that White Stuff???

Can you believe we have so much snow in Alabama???  This picture of our house was taken this afternoon.  We have at least 7" of snow - something we very rarely see in the south.  Not only did it snow all night but we had "thunder-snow", a term I never heard until this morning.  I love the snow and the way it makes everything look so wintery and clean!

Our dogs, Ringo and Carly, really didn't know what to think about the snow.  It took them a few minutes to figure out how to walk in it and a few minutes more to figure out how to do their business!  My sweet husband was freezing by the time they came in!

This is our sweet friends and neighbors, Mary Ann and Chuck, all bundled up today.  The tree in the background looks so beautiful all drenched in snow they just had to have their picture made in front of it!  (This will make a good Christmas card pic for next year - their friends won't believe it was really taken in Alabama!)

I love the snow covered rooftops in our neighborhood and the way the trees just pop out of the sea of white.  I can't imagine living where this is a normal occurrence - it must be breathtaking!

Brrr, that looks cold, but it is so beautiful. We don't get snow down here in Yuma, AZ. I really enjoy your blog. I've given you a little award, so come on over and check it out.
