We woke up to the first snow of the year this morning. Now, it's not your Donner party kind of snow my colleagues in the mountain west are used to. Or that early to arrive and late to leave kind of snow my colleagues in the great white north get. This is your Northeast Ohio wet and on the verge of melting kind of snow that turns our clay soil into mud that goes all the way to the other side of the earth. I took the boys out to run around in the snow. Bob loves the snow and will catch snow balls all day. Fred was paging through his contract finding the clause that made him a house dog.

Oh Jim,

What a beautiful scene. Since we do not get much snow, if any, I will just enjoy yours :0)

That really is some snow you have there Jim! I suspect a sudden drop in temperature will bring me some sooner than I would like.

That is a lot of snow, this gardener in the great white north doesn't have any yet!
It is beautiful though (at least the first one is, then it just gets tedious).

Your snow is lovely. I say that because we don't have snow here, except once in a century or so. I am on Fred's side. I wouldn't want to go out either.

We have this Boxer dog that hates for the grass to even be wet. She will tippy-toe around and pout, sits right at the door, and she knows she only has to go out to take care of business and I will let her back in. Minor hardship for her, turns into major abuse on my part, as far as she is concerned! She is a brat!

You made me laugh at that referenc to the Donner party. Not that it's any way funny for people to eat people ;0
Not to brag, but we had snow in October. :( It sure looks lovely on your adironadack chair.
