First Snow


Just in time for Summerland's annual light-up festival, we got (are getting, actually) our first snow of the season. And it's a beauty, snowing hard for at least six hours and piling up about five inches of fluff. Ivy and Ella woke up before me and Ezra (Tannis was the early bird, off to hockey first thing!), and as soon as they spotted the snow, they got geared up and headed outside to play. Later on, I took some photos:

I really HATE the winter for the cold and driving when it's crappy road conditions. But man oh man was it gorgeous out today! And ALWAYS on light up! Kinda freaky!
Plus snow is WAY more fun through your childrens eyes!

Kaili said...

p.s. That pictures of Tannis is GREAT!

Must look extra weird to you, Pearl. You're looking out over white sand beaches!

Heather, we passed you with the first one of the season! Usually the first few snows disappear in a couple of days, but this one might stick around for a while. So deep.

Thanks, Kaili. I'm very fond of that photo of Tannis. And yes, it was incredibly beautiful today -- felt warmer than it has the last while, but with soft fluff falling most of the day. So quiet and calm and...different. Just the change of season itself is exciting. I think you're right about it always snowing on Light-Up too.

Oh, wow. Gorgeous snow. I'm jealous. And I love that snow-capped apple pic.

Thanks, Jules. It pretty much disappeared today, which seems to be fine by everyone.
