It's begining to look alot like Christmas!

Good Morning Lovelies!!!

Today I wanted to share some pictures I took last Saturday when we got all that snow!

I just LOVE the way everything looks when it shows!  It's like a whole new world.  Everything is so different and dreamy!

So, I can't resist taking some pics.

And I thought I might share them with you!

First we have the view from our back porch:
(Click to make 'em big and beautiful!)

   
 Then, it was time to head out to my father-in-laws.
Here we are heading down the road we live on:







We turn off our road and head down this road, since the Snow route is open.
They open an alternative way off the mountain when it snows, because if they did not, we'd have to go through 2 series of multiple s curves, which of course isn't fun in slippery conditions, when you live on a mountain.  SCARY!


And toward the snow exit we go...


Now out onto the main road in and out of the mountain...




We got there safe and sound!  Gotta love 4 wheel drive!
Obviously we didn't take my lowered Civic.  Although...it would plow it's own path!


And 1 last picture!
Whats better than snow?
Snow in the sunlight!!!!
Here is the view off our back porch the next morning...




Yup!  I LOVE Snow!


Doesn't that get you in the Christmas Spirit!
Between looking at those pics, and the temps in the teens last night, I just wanna curl up with a cup of Cocoa!

Do you guys have fun plans this weekend?
I hope so!!!!

That's all I have for you today my wonderful readers!
I hope you have a great day and a fantastic weekend!!!

{{{Hugs}}}

I live literaly in the Smokey mountains so I get the snow route and mountain driving. It's extra fun here because of the excess of Florida retiree's that seem to only go out driving in poor weather. Very old people + ice and snow + Narrow Mountain curvy roads = one heck of an adrenalen rush!

Gorgeous pics sweetie! You had to have been in the single digits this morning at home because it was 4 degrees here at work at 8 AM. Brrrrr! It's only 8 degrees now.

These pictures are beautiful! I have never lived in the snow and have only seen snow a few times... I wouldn't know what to do if it snowed where I live. The driving part sounds so scary.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Mighty Lambchop said...

Beautiful pictures! Your drive sounds scary though!

I'm not a fan of snow. I got my fill in Nebraska. It doesn't snow much in my part of Oregon, thank bob. I think I was just meant to be an island girl. I get chilly when it's below 80 degrees!

Looks nice! I wish we would have as much snow here in Finland (as I live in southern part)

Camy said...

God!!! the pics.are awesome!!!!

I adore "looking" at snow. We don't get snow much here in Southern New Jersey. When I was little it used to snow really heavy. Not any more. It must be so beautiful where you live. People go crazy when it snows here. I guess if we got more of it we would be used to driving it all of that snow. A 4-wheel drive would make it much easier also. Take care and thanks for sharing your pictures. Did all the wrapping of presents this weekend. Had some hot chocolate with a squirt of Redi-Whip. Delicious. Love ya.
