We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning with about 4 inches of snow and more on its way! Schools were cancelled, so it looks like we'll be housebound today. These photos were taken in our backyard which is a greenbelt of huge cedars and pine trees. Just beautiful and majestic with their covering of white!

Our little town of Anacortes, WA doesn't have any snow equipment, so life pretty much comes to a screeching halt when we get a winter storm. We already have ice packed roads from unusually low temperatures and snow from earlier this week, so road conditions are particularly treacherous.

I thought we had left all of this weather behind when we left Kansas! Oh, well, it's beginning to look alot like Christmas!


  1. Snow is pretty but it sure does shut down everything in the Pacific Northwest unlike back in Kansas where they know what to do in times like this!

  2. It looks beautiful! Wish I was there! I like the way you put the icing on the cookies! My mom just sent over a box and they were yummy! Sugar cookies are perfect for Christmas! Stay warm!


Thanks so much for taking the time to write your thoughts. I treasure each and every comment and look forward to reading what you have to say!
