Saturday's Shots - One Last Snow Shot

Okay, I'll admit it! Wednesday when the city shut down, so did I!  One showing, a couple of early morning buyer calls (rescheduling showings) and one Deed recordation call from a Closing that happened late in the day on Tuesday and I was free to play all day!  And, that I did! I call it bliss...because, it WAS!

 

When the city shuts down with a snowfall, businesses close, schools are closed and Charlotteans PLAY! The glorious part of that to me is that my phone can go a full day without a charge! One day of this and I'm ready to get back to work. But, while I'm playing, one of my favorite things to do is take pictures and I found this one.

 

Charlotte Snow 2018

 

3 years ago, we added extensive landscaping and since we have a vacant lot beside us, awaiting a home to be built, the lot can become unsightly. So, we hid the lot with a row of Arborvitae. They are evergreens that maintain a beautiful green all year but, covered in snow, they are even more beautiful.

This photo represented to me the peace and tranquility that I SO enjoyed on Wednesday! 

 

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

I agree, Sally K. & David L. Hanson and I think they're more attractive too!

And, LOL, even having 4 seasons here, the winters are typically a lot warmer than they have been the last 2 years - much more bearable! So, snowfalls turn us all into little kids!

Hi Wayne Martin! It's so different than a typical day off - on snow days, EVERYBODY is off! (Well, except those who serve and the media and I feel for them having to work.) Recharging is definitely welcomed!

Same here, Liz and Bill Spear! We're expecting high 50's and low 60's for today and the week coming up so, that's more in-line with our normal! I'm curious if your bees will see themselves out today!

Me too, Robert Hicks! There's no doubt about that! I'm up throughout the night, just waiting for it to start when we are expecting it. I don't think I got enough of it during childhood! LOL

LOL Sheila Anderson! You know, you may be onto something - that photo probably doesn't do a thing for most but, for me, it's a reflection of a day filled with play and blissful peace!

Happy Sunday!

Snow days are fun. We don't get it often either, so it's always special. The photo of the tree screen covered in snow is so beautiful. You've made me want some snow. Ha.

Hello Debe: Snow is wonderful to look at through a window in a roasty-toasty room. I prefer a more distant relationship with the white fluffy stuff. :)

Seeing the snow in the picture is about as close as I want to get to it, haha.  Hey, I saw your comment about Bill Walton and I would have to disagree, haha.  I love it when Bill calls the games!

We were shut down this week too and finally, the sun came out on Thursday and it was time to venture out. I took the car through the carwash today to get the last of the salt and grime off of it. Have a good week, Debe.

Debe as much of a pain snow is to shovel, and the problems it creates, you can't be the post card like scenery snow creates.

Debe, I love the snow and we haven't had but three inches of snow here so far this year.  I am sure we will get a big snow storm soon. And, that is okay with me as I love to watch it snow and see a blanket of white on the ground.... gives me peace and tranquility.

Debe, we also got that snow that you received but the temp today was over 70 and tomorrow they are predicting 80. I think spring it here but bad weather in the way of storms usually accompanies the arrival of winter at least here in the mid west.

Well ,it was 73 deg F last week many became allergic to flower pollen. This afternoon I saw an older cyclist with shorts on. I mentioned to him it will be mid 20s F this evening. I heard Los Angeles will experience no warmer weather.  The plants are confused. Worst is we have about 1+ inch rain since last season.
