Snow fashionably late

We woke this a.m. to another perfect example of Indiana weather. (There’s an old saying, “If you don’t like the weather in Indiana, just wait a few minutes, and it’ll change.”)

Christmas Day and yesterday, we wore T-shirts and long-sleeved cover-ups. Today we are wearing snow boots, gloves and winter coats.

The early morning hours were so quiet you could almost hear a snowflake drop. Huge snowflakes filled the air like goose down in a pillow fight, and quickly comforted the cold earth like patchwork on Grandmother’s feather bed.

Christmas snow is fashionably late, and keeping with Hoosier style.


12 days ’til Christmas

Today’s countdown photo was taken in February after an ice storm nearly crippled the Wabash Valley. Smaller trees bowed to the ground like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. The cradle fell from a older bough in the tree tops. This tall sturdy sycamore tree survived the harsh punishment, my dwarf peach tree didn’t. (See Suzy Snowflake 3XL post for more winter 2010-11 photos.)

All I want for Christmas is a pair of ice cleats and plenty of warm holiday cheer to get me through February.
