First Snow!

Before I talk about the snow this morning, let me welcome some new followers of my blog: Alicemckay, Carol, Roundabout Roundabout, and Coltin 1948. 


I let the dogs out at five this morning and found it had snowed after all. Almost to the the day six months after the last snow in May. We had been promised snow or rain, but when we went to bed nothing had materialized. Since everyone here loves the snow and we have nowhere to go and nothing much to do we can just enjoy it today. 


Samson was in his element and, even though she's old, it doesn't take much to get Angel in a playful mood.


The two of them didn't even want to come back in the house.


I took this at seven a.m., right before the sun came over the eastern mountain range.


I knew the snow would start to melt as soon as the sun came up, so I took a few more pictures.


Then I looked east again and saw that the sun had not made much progress and huge black clouds were gathering around the mountains. Maybe we'll get some more snow. Hope so!

Have nice Sunday!

  1. Love the dogs playing in the snow! They just get so excited and giddy!

    Glad you can enjoy the snow without having to get out into traffic, etc. That's the best way to do it!

  3. Oh how beautiful. What a scene for you to fine at 7 a.m. Isn't it funny how even older dogs can find their puppy if the scene is right. Enjoy a beautiful day :)

  7. Beautiful! There's not much I enjoy more (weather-related) than the first snow of the season. Lizzie LOVES making snow angels, so we've already started talking in the Lay house about when we will get our first snow!! Can't wait. I'm glad you and the dogs are enjoying it!

  9. HI Inger! I've not had a chance to read blogs in a couple of days and was surprized to stop by yours today and see you have snow--WOW!!!--For some reason, I didn't think you would get snow. But I'll be doing my snow dance soon enough because when it snows here in Virginia, everything closes down and I just love a snow day!! Enjoy your Sunday!!

  13. The landscrape shots are great. My wife and I just got back from buying two new snow shovels. We wore out two last winter and I hope we don't get a chance to test the new ones out.

  14. Good afternoon! This is my first visit! I live near Palm Springs, but board my horses up in our local San Jacinto mountains! I'm waiting to see if they got snow. They are at 4,000 feet...it's still too cloudy to actually see our mountains! We LOVE your area and travel through it frequently, to the Sierras! My gelding, Sunni, came from your area...United Pegasus.

  16. Thank you all so much for your comments. Since you all had similar comments, I will respond to all here. I love to hear back from you, thank you so much and I am glad you enjoyed the pictures of the first snow here.

    Kim: we are at 4,141 feet, so we get snow, but it usually melts within a day or two. No need to shovel here. So it's a perfect situation.

    Sophie: Samson is impressed you too know such a big word: ominous! Aren't words fun!

  18. I don't know what it is about snow that make the dogs go nuts -- just like little kids, they are! So glad that Angel gets to join in the fun.

    I'm not a big fan of snow -- we seem to get our fair share, but the dogs do have a ball in it. :)
