After pouring rain most of the day Wednesday, we got snow. Great big fluffy snowflakes that quickly covered the ground and street. It started around 2:30 and by 3:00 the ground was covered.
The above photos were taken just after it started snowing. It was really surprising that after all the rain we had, the ground was so quickly white. The photos below are after a couple of hours of snowing.
It was still snowing when I took these around 4:30. I'm not sure exactly how much we got but I'm guessing a good 3 inches, maybe more.
Then joy of joys, the power went out at 5:30. It's been so long since the power was out, I had become complacent. I didn't have any candles and only 1 flashlight. Of course, at 5:30 EST in Tennessee, it is started to get dark so that just added to the fun. I spent the next 2 hours wrapped up in a sweater and blanket with the flashlight pointed toward the ceiling for a little bit of light. My sweet neighbor across the street came over to see if I was okay and if I needed anything. He and his wife are just young things and have a baby boy who turned 1 in September.
I learned last night that I am too dependent on electricity. We have no alternate heat source so I just had to wait it out. My recliner is electric so I couldn't stretch out and nap. I didn't have enough light to read a regular book and my Kindle's battery had run down while at the doctor's office. I couldn't crochet because, again, not enough light. Ah well, there's something to be said for quiet reflection.
Today's a new day. The sun is shining although it is really, really cold - 28F. The street is icy. I'm sitting in a warm house. Life is good.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are.
