Winter Wonderland: December 2015 Edition

This is the road home. We're a few hundred feet higher.
Who's got two thumbs and is getting proficient at chaining up her tires? This gal!

We've been getting snow in smallish doses over the last couple of weeks and it's accumulating into a decent blanket on the ground. It's fun to get to put the new snow gauge on the clothesline
to use!

About 5 inches.

Just over 6 inches!

Nearly a foot and still coming down when this was taken on Tuesday.

As the chaining up of tires would indication, the snow can make the driveway and road a little slick even with regular plowing and shoveling, but so far it hasn't been too treacherous and it sure is pretty.

Usually you can see the Sapphire Mountain Range across the valley from here, but it's snow clouds all around.

Old fencing rolled up behind the shop looks cool with the snow accumulation.
Before the snow got very deep, I spotted these bird prints under the front deck.

And not one to miss a chance to show off pictures of the woodshed, we've made a noticeable dent in the firewood for the season and can see the back wall.

Sometimes I like to sneak a peek through the brush, but not in a creepy way.

We expect perhaps a few more inches before the end of the week and below freezing temperatures, so it shall no doubt be a white Christmas. Yahoo!


  1. We're getting a white Christmas, too! Happy holidays, and best wishes for the New Year to you & yours! :)

  2. So gorgeous! I love winter and snow so much. Hope we get some white stuff this winter, too.

    1. I still love the snow, too! Now... last I knew you were living where the only "white stuff" would be white sand beaches...


It feels so good to read comments! If you're leaving one (or more!), THANK YOU! If you're not... c'mon, already!
