Just a few more scenes from the snow...these were taken Wednesday. So far no more snow for us, though I think it is hitting south of us. I am not complaining! Although it is very tempting to head south for a drive.

When I was a kid, and we got some of the deeper snows, one of my favorite things to do was to take bites of snow off everything. Be it a fence post, or the branch of an evergreen tree. When the snow was heavy laden on the branches, it was too much to resist. It would make me so thirsty--more so than working in the hot sun most days.

Or joy of joys, if we were allowed to make snow cream. We would get a mixing bowl or pan of snow, add evaporated milk, sugar, and vanilla flavoring, then mix well with a spoon....and emmm-mmm good! In our mind, it was the next best thing to ice cream.

Oh Rose, what wonderful pictures! I just love, love, love SNOW, but this year...it has been less then a normal winter...rain, sleet, ice and then just a bit of snow! Tonight the wind in howling! We have pastures underwater, roads closed because of water and basements flooded (not mine, thankfully), but it is not good in PA right now! One of the Amish neighbors will not be able to get the horse and buggy down his lane to go to church tomorrow, his little bridge in his lane is under water! He and his family are fine, they have everything they need but out of luck if they have an emergency!

Stay warm, stay dry...and continue with the wonderful pictures!
