I woke up this morning to a gray white sky and snow falling from the sky. Yes, you read that correctly, snow was definitely falling from the sky. Not only were there snowflakes, but the flakes were quite large and falling fast.
It didn’t take long for snowflakes to accumulate on everything and I mean EVERYTHING. Of course, I was warm and toasty by the fireplace working on my laptop while the blizzard was going on outside. Okay, maybe it wasn’t a blizzard, but that much snow falling was super exciting for a snow deprived redhead who lives in Richmond, Virginia.
I mean, really, look at the tree. Can you believe there is that much snow on it?!! Amazing. Absolutely amazing!
So what do you think…6 inches? 7 inches? 8 inches? I’m not sure exactly, but I do know that it really buried stuff. And…that hill down the street…yeah, impossible to drive up or down which is exactly why I was working from home.
At 3:00 p.m. I realized that I forgot to eat lunch. See how hard I work? I get lost in it and completely forget that I have to have nutrition! Anyway, the sun made the sky bright white with a gray hue. Between the slightly warmer temperature and the crazy blowing wind, the snow started falling off the tree.
The snow kept coming down, however, and I kept working.
When the snow stopped for a bit, I was able to snap a few more shots of the lovely red berry tree. It was buried by snow in many places, but the red berries were still a beautiful shock of color against the bright white of the snow.
Even the frozen ice drips were beautiful. They reminded me of diamonds. Can you imagine that many diamonds hanging on a berry bush?
I know that the snow won’t melt overnight, so I get to enjoy waking up another morning with snow laying all over the ground. I’m such a lucky girl!
