Snow Day

Seven to eight inches of snow was predicted, and we got it! I have never experienced so much snow. Before we went to bed last night, almost three inches had accumulated. That is how much we had on Christmas. There was at least seven inches when I got up at seven this morning to feed the critters, and it has snowed a little more since then.

The dogs had a blast again this time...

and so did Lee. He put on his snow goggles, rain/snow pants, and even pulled out his hiking poles.

We decided to make a snowman in the front yard and give him the goggles and poles. I had exactly one carrot in the fridge to use as a nose. The carrot would not go into the ball of snow, so I broke it in half and Lee put a screw in the carrot and then sawed off the head of the screw to have a sharp point to place into the snowman's head. It still won't stay in. It held long enough for a photo. Lee used nails for the eyes.

Someone had ventured out in a vehicle this morning. Later, several people on four-wheelers came down our street and into the cul-de-sac, driving around in circles and making a big mess of all the snow.

Here are a few more pictures to give you an idea of how much snow there is. Snow, especially this much snow, is a big deal for us here in Alabama. Frankly, I feel that I have seen enough. I'm ready for spring (minus the pollen).
