December at our Home

This has been an unusual December for us. We live in an area, where snow is rare. When we do get it, often the limbs start breaking off of the trees and landing on power lines and then we spend days without power. A couple of years ago, when we had quite a bit of snow, we were without power for 10 days. Our problem is that we live in a semi-rural area, near a large metropolitan area and so we are served last.

This December has been different though. We have had snow—lots of snow—more snow than we’ve ever had before. It’s been beautiful—lots of photo ops. It’s been slick—bad driving conditions. It’s been cold—I’ve been wearing my coat in the house. And we haven’t lost our electricity yet for even five minutes.

The kids love snow. They have been sledding and sledding and sledding.

My husband loves snow. He has been taking pictures and more pictures and more pictures. Here are some of my favorites that he took.

I don’t love snow. I have been trying to stay warm, but I did go sledding a little and I’ve taken a few pictures too.

I’m glad we’ve had all this snow and I’ll also be glad when it’s gone. But it’s made for a fun December.

    I live in Central Washington and we had a lot of snow to then it rained and we had some flooding. It has been a crazy winter. Looks like your children had lots of fun playing in the snow.
