Amazing Sight

There is the distinct possibility that you might get tired of my "Snow" posts. But please indulge me at least for this first snow season. I am like a kid in a candy store and every new sight amazes me. The pictures below are of the snow formation in one of our basement window wells. It looks like a giant Marshmallow landed on the top of the window well and just decided to sit there. Reminds me a little of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, a great children's book which has been made into a movie.
I have been trying to hang out downstairs some today as the sun melts the snow hoping that there would be a giant crash as the snow avalanches to the ground. Instead, there seems to be a steady drip, drip, drip....



The Raggedy Anns and Andys (some of which were handmade by my Grandma Bergeron) usually sit up, but they are a little tired from watching the snow fall outside their window.

That is awesome...it does look like a giant marshmallow...let the s'mores begin. The cloudy with a chance of meatballs was a great movie. A long time family friend of my parents was actually in charge of all the animation for that movie. I look forward to all your snow posts...I love snow..something just absolutely amazing about it.

Have fun...go make snow balls.

As another Houstonian living just a little bit further north, I never tire of winter. I am looking forward to all of your stories and wonder over a "real" winter. Here in Tulsa we get just a touch of real winter every year. I have often wondered what a Colorado winter would be like. Would I love it as much as I think I would? I hope that every snow fall brings you as much enjoyment this winter, as this one has.
