It's Snowing!!!!!!!!

I woke up at 3:40 am this morning to a very wet nose sniffing at my face. In other words, Orca needed to go outside to take care of business and hubby was pretending to be sound asleep! So, I got out of my nice, warm comfy bed, took Orca out to the garage to let him out in the backyard, and to my amazement, it was snowing!!! This has only happened a couple of times to us, since our elevation is 14 feet about sea level! It was so beautiful watching the flakes float through the sky! It was melting as soon as it hit the ground, but that was fine for me! I ran back in the house, woke up Hubby and son, called my mom, who was also awake watching out her window, and then remembered the dog! I ran back to the garage, opened the door, he ran in, and on his beautiful , was a ton of snow flakes! He looked liked he just got done playing in the snow! Well, hubby and son were not amused at me nor Orca, so off to bed they went, while Orca and I watched through the big picture window in the living room. Orca went back to sleep, but I was way to excited. I tried to take a picture, but it would come out way to blurry! So, I decided to throw in the towel and go back to sleep also, dreaming of snow angels and snow ball fights. Sweet Dreams!!


  1. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

    What a treat that you woke when you did - thanks to Orca. I am with you on being excited about the snow in this part of California. When I woke this morning I checked outside first thing and not a flake of snow was to be seen. I thought, "Oh, well, it didn't snow here last night." It never occurred to me that it might have snowed but melted when it hit the ground, because I was expecting the 1 inch that it was reported that we were to get. We got lots of rain, What was I thinking - I was expecting snow on the ground - old thinking left over from the "old country." Now the sun is trying to break through the thick overcast snow filled clouds on their way to the Sierras to drop their wonderland treasures.

    Happy week!

  2. well Pam,you sound like my little ones to be excited about the snow- it is pretty exciting when it arrives. They can hardly wait to get dressed and make snow angels and snowmen. We got a foot last Friday and it is indeed a winter wonderland. It caused more than a few problems last Friday. This weekend's weather forecast is very cold - 39 C with wind chill. Hope it does not get that cold. When it gets to - 40 it doesn't matter if it is celcius or fahrenheit it is cold. It is then projected to warm up the middle of next week to around -10 so that will feel balmy LOL. Such is the joy of winter..
    Happy holidays,
