OUR FIRST SNOW

As I have said before and will probably say a zillion times more..... I love an adventure.

Now, some folks may not think that having a light snow is an adventure. Some may not think snow of any size is anything but a nuisance. But, me... I think snow in any amount is an adventure, especially if I am out in it.

Yes, I know... old folks, like me, should stay safe. They fall enough without slipping on ice or snow. But, it was raining this morning, some snowflakes falling, nothing sticking. So, me and my fellow head to church. 

This is a shot I took out the car window as we left church and lunch afterward. It's beginning to look a bit threatening. snow piled up on the windshield, the road and the sidewalk slushy. So, we crept home, VERY CAREFULLY and we made it.

I loved riding along with huge, sloppy wet flakes hitting the windshield and things beginning to turn white. But, when I got out of the car at the apartment building I was nervous walking to the entrance. It was a bit slippery but here I am. I did not fall.

Of course, once inside I grabbed the camera and ran out the door to the passageway to grab these pictures of the parking lot I use. 



(This is my car)

and then out onto my balcony... to get these.....


Wow, our first snow. I am so excited.

  10. We got falling flakes but nothing stuck! Guess there's still time though - Feb, and March can be brutal in the south - last year for instance!
    Take care - don't want to hear about any slip ups on icy parking lots etc. dear!
