We were told yesterday that we would definitely be getting snow...Snow is rare here in Eastern North Carolina. The western side gets all the white stuff and we usually just get rain!! But yesterday was different...We woke up to a light gray sky that started to darken as the day progressed...We went from light gray to a nice bubbling dark gray sky by late afternoon!! I could tell the sky was waiting to erupt!! Naturally, I lit a fire in the fireplace and started mending a sweater that my daughter has been waiting for me to do since last November!! All cozy things to do in this situation...waiting patiently for the first flake to fall...
EeeBee knows also by this point that something is going to happen... Cats sense these things, right?
Suddenly, the sky opens and the snow starts!! The birds go crazy at the feeders because they are, after all, confused by this white stuff...It's almost like the rush to buy milk and toilet paper at the stores that we people are drawn to do when snow is forecast.
I noticed that the doves take another tactic...they hunker down while the snow blankets their back...not a good strategy...the storm is here!!
I finally get so excited because it is really snowing at this point and it looks like inches!!! Instead of enjoying the nice crackling fire, I spend most of the daylight hours running to different windows and getting pictures at every angle possible ...This is a shot from the upstairs window... See, it's still snowing like gangbusters!!
Our snowstorm ended late last night...It may have only been an inch or two when all was said and done but it was a blizzard to us. As you can see, the sun is out today and the snow is beginning to melt away. It has been about 4 years since we got 2 inches of snow. Yesterday will live in my memory forever...The snowstorm of 2013...
