Snow, snow, snow...

Friday, February 12, 2010

So it seems we had a lot of snow here on Wednesday. 

A lot of snow.

The view from our back porch.  
So beautiful.

Don't think I'll be able to get into my potting shed any time soon...

We had close to 2 feet fall on Wednesday. 
The power was out for about 4 hours. 

There was so much snow that the guy who plows our driveway actually
 got stuck in the snow in our driveway.

Michael on his way to help Joe, the plow guy...

There's the plow truck, stuck in our driveway.  
He actually needed someone to come and tow him out.  

School was cancelled Wednesday and Thursday due to the snow.  
The wind blew so hard during the night. 

Thankfully all was well and nothing blew off the house. 

The sun came out on Thursday.
The plow guy returned and finished the job. 

Everywhere you looked it was so beautiful.
So bright.
So white. 

Reminds me of the following verse:

"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."
Isaiah 1:18

Isn't it amazing to know that no matter what we've done,
no matter what sin we've committed,
the Lord sees us as white as the freshly fallen snow...

As long as we're first covered in the cleansing blood of the Lamb.  

Enjoy your day!


  1. That looks ALOT like our yard! Spring IS coming, right????? hope you and the kiddos are doing well otherwise, how is the Colonel doing? I hope all is well and enjoy your day! Hugs, Carmen

  2. What a wonderful way to view the besutiful snow, Lois...I really like that. Just goes to show how much we should always look around God's creation for reminders of His awesome goodness.

    Hope you were able to stay warm with the power out!! It's so funny because I will still find myself trying to turn on a light switch when the power goes out!

    blessings and hugs,


  3. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Scripture and you really snow...maybe you WILL have a white valentines? *wink*

    snow helps us appreciate our "menfolk's" biceps too! lol.


  4. We haven't had snow like that in a long time.
    (I hesitate to say that..cuz it might just happen!)

    It makes for some pretty pictures though...and I loved your verses about our scarlet sins being made whiter than snow.

    But it can get confining...and I bet you are looking forward to Spring so you can soon be "Walking on Sunshine" again!

  5. WOW To this California girl all the snow just seems sooo overwhelming, yet breath takingly beautiful. Glad everything turned out OK. Have a wonderful week-end. Hugs, Debbie

  6. Amen! And what a winter wonderland out your door! Stay warm & stay safe...

  7. What a blessing of a post. If I said I was jealous of your snow, would you think I was crazy? I miss seasons and snow.

  8. Amen Lois. All praise and glory to the Lamb!
    What beautiful pictures! Even though that much snow can be difficult to deal with it is such a beautiful change from the ordinary. I don't think I could live where there wasn't snow in the winter! I'm sure the kids enjoyed having a few days off from school too! Hugs, Loretta

  9. Just popped over from truthful tidbits...
    There is something about snow flying that seems to make everything ok.

  10. We too have had our share of the white stuff. I'm ready for it to all be over. Wonderful Scripture Lois. We are such a lucky bunch.

  11. Bless your heart. I guess I didn't realize he was gone. We have had 8 members of our family over there at one time or another since the war began. My sister is married to a Navy pilot who is the reserves now and also flys for Southwest, so she never sees him. I know how hard it is on you and your family. I will be praying super hard for you. Thanks for letting me know.

    God bless you.

  12. Blessings to you today dear friend, Loved the photos of the snow and I can relate somewhat-but we've been pretty good here in northern Colorado. Stay inside, pull out puzzles or books and enjoy. Hugs to you.

  13. WOW! That is beautiful. It has been simply amazing here in Texas where we rarely ever get snow. We got about 6 inches last night. It is so pretty!

  14. It is beautiful :) The plow guy got stuck here a few weeks ago too, but not at our house =p At the mall parking lot! haha. Your husband was very nice to go dig him out :)

  15. How awful that the SNOWPLOW guy got stuck! That is a LOT of snow!!! Snowzilla!

  16. I guess from the looks of things, I don't need to send you some of ours.LOL
    I love that verse.
    Stay warm and safe.
    Spring is around the corner. I hope.

  17. Have watched how the virginians have endured the snow from the news -- now I read about it first hand. Snow is headed our way- coming from the south!

  18. So funny (or maybe sad) how quickly my "spiritual thoughts" about snow turned into truly not-so-spiritual thoughts!!:) When the plow guy gets stuck, you know you are in trouble!! Hopefully that sun will stay out for a couple days - even weeks!!

  19. Beautiful verse - one of my favorites. I shall now repeat that to myself over and over while looking out at more snow coming down here. It does help :) Blessings to you and yours. Hope all is well! -Tammy

  20. Wow! You do have a lot of snow. I think it's pretty but I know it can cause havoc. School was cancelled here for a day due to the snow too. Our older grandson's love that because they are able to go out shoveling and make a little extra money.I hope you have a nice weekend. Happy Valentine's Day!

  21. Hi Lois -- on my email, are you accidentally putting a "s" on the end of penniwig? Try hollyrose@gmail if that doesn't fix it!!!

  22. we are right there with you:-) we had the 2 feet then just had 2more wednesday, and now more coming monday it is crazy but cool. it is something the kids are truley loving.

  23. Wow those pictures are crazy...and beautiful!! Have a great weekend! :)

  24. I love the picture of the guy with the shovel going out to rescue the snowplow/truck. Kinda like David slaying Goliath with the slingshot. That made me smile. Have a blessed weekend.

  25. WOW! You did get a lot!!! Sorry that the electricity went out!! Remember this too shall pass...the warm winds of Spring will surely be arriving soon!
    Blessings to stay warm and safe...
