W--WOMAN (MOTHER NATURE)

Sent this snow storm our way.  It's the first real snow of our season.  Yes, it's pretty.  I'm not complaining (too much).  I thought I would blog this because then I can look back next year and know when the first real snow of our season attacked  fell.
This was the scene early this morning....dark o'clock.  It's our crab apple tree. I think I was more "crabby" than it was.
Poor, pathetic scarecrow crow.
The view from one of the few windows in the surgery department...right over the dumpsters. Oh well, you atleast can see the trees!
When I pulled into our driveway this afternoon,  I had to laugh at this scarecrow...the wind was blowing and it looks like he's crossing his legs because he has to pee! Ha! Somewhere in front of the sign there's a few more pumpkins....under the snow!
Same crab apple tree as this morning, only a little blue sky and sun makes me not so "crabby"!

I love seeing your snow pictures. They are so pretty. And I can enjoy the scenes from afar. I'm glad I'm in a no snow zone. I would be like your scarecrow!

That scare crow does seem like he needs to go to the bathroom right away.
We got flurries yesterday but it was not too bad. It seems like it is going to be one cold November.

Hahaha Your scarecrow does look like he has to pee. Too funny. Maybe he drank too much cocoa?

Ah yeah.. my niece calls it "devil dust!" Gotta admit it's pretty but it's been falling here all day. Too early. Lovely pics though, Yaya

We hauled all of our gear inside too, then this morning we played in the snow. It was a beautiful one, if a bit early. As I'm writing this I can hear the wind howling outside. I'd rather have the snow than the extreme cold we're getting now. Nothing fun about playing outside in that!

I had to laugh about the scarecrow :)

The first snow is pretty; the snows in March are welcomed, the snows in between can be tiresome :)

Have to admit the trees full of snow at work were a nice view :)

Stay safe out there!

Hi, YaYa! Yessum, a coating of fresh snow on trees and lawns is a pretty sight, especially for someone like me who doesn't have to deal with it. I hope that scarecrow was given an occasional 15 minute potty break. Were there any icicles on his pants? :)

There's a stiff NW breeze blowing across Central Florida this morning and we're bracing for the coldest snap of the season tomorrow morning when the temps are expected to bottom out in the mid to upper 30s.

Thank you for sharing your snow pics with us, dear friend YaYa, and enjoy the rest of your week!

Snow definitely has a beauty, especially glittering on a tree like that. Your scarecrow is very polite to hold it in and not pee in your yard! The cold causes my little dog to hold hers in, too.
Snow like that causes people around here to either stay home from work or drive crazy.

Oh my you certainly have every reason to be crabby. If it happened here so soon I would be in your emergency room as one crazy wild woman. Too soon even for our freezing temps. I needed a break from
Mowing but geez it's not even winter yet.
I have missed you. This computer problem of mine has gone on long enough. I have to break down and buy one. Not being able to keep up with everyone is not working.
On my iphone now and trying to type with one finger is too funny
Love ya

Bless you, your snow looks so pretty. You can keep it THERE!
It was only in 30's today in Georgia but no snow, thank God!
Stay warm!!

Ahhh, I came looking for you because I knew you would be buried somewhere amongst the pines. Heard some places in the North East were getting upwards of 30 inches. Love your pictures especially the crab apple tree from the morning. Stay warm!

That Scarecrow does look out of place covered in snow doesn't he ! He should have followed the yellow brick road and danced himself out a there ~ if he only had a brain ~ giggle (Sorry I'm a diehard Wizard of Oz fan ... to the point of cornyness)

Always enjoy your posts and the photos. I agee, the scarecrow looks as though he has to pee. Bad weather hit here too and I'm happy to be in my condo, snug as a bug. Good to read something of yours. Resing mostly right now trying to get energy back. Hugs.

I'm getting behind my commenting again.
Your crab tree looks so pretty with the snow cover. You've got nothing to be crabby about with what Boston got... unreal....

I know, it's not so funny driving in that stuff. I still don't have my snow tires on. They were too busy at the garage. Then my husband went back a second time and as he got out of my van, his knee went out on him and he got back in the van and came back home, lol.

I burst out laughing at the scarecrow too. he does look like he needs to pee,hahaha.

Stay safe and warm.
Hugs,
JB

Well, from someone who almost never gets to see real snow, it's a beautiful sight! I do remember when the first snow would fall when I was a student at BYU. We'd open the drapes on the big front window and just watch it fall. It was so silent and so pretty. I'll never forget it. That said, I'm not a huge fan of cold weather, these days. Makes me ache!
