A Walk in the Snow

Saturday, December 05, 2009

Yesterday afternoon, for the 2nd time in a year, S'East TX. got snow! It snowed for several hours and the snow was gorgeous! Now I know that might not impress those of you who see snow a lot & every year.

We live on a county road & I decided to do a "first" for me! I walked 2 miles on our road while the snow was falling. Oh, my, what fun! I sang, caught snowflakes on my tongue, waved at people in cars/trucks as they passed me (some of them looked at me like I was nuts even tho most had probably seen me walking on other days), looked at the snow on trees & fields as it accumulated. I had a blast!!!

Then after I got home, while I was still wet & bundled up, hubby & I slowly walked thru our back field & woods--again while it was still snowing! That was fun too!!!

I got out early this morning with my camera to take pictures of the snow on things. Hopefully some of them will come out well!

Enjoy your day & if you got snow for the first time yesterday afternoon, I hope you enjoyed yourself as well!!!

    What a wonderful tale. I can appreciate your experience - it doesn't snow where I live, either. I enjoyed reading your account of walking in the snow!

    The first snow is always so beautiful...especially if you don't get it very often!!

    What a fun thing to do. They say you actually burn more calories walking in the snow than in nicer weather.
