Greetings From The Snow Globe

I had hoped to post this morning about the holidays, but that progam has been interrupted with the snow.  We are in the middle of a blizzard, the likes of which we don't see around here. This is supposed to continue for about 18 more hours. These pictures were taken about 3 hours ago and are already obsolete. We had 6-7 inches on the ground when they were taken and I know there is at least another 3 on top of that now. All in all they are predicting over a foot for us.
We are the peninsula between Norfolk, VA and Salisbury, Maryland and the entire storm system is predicted to steadily pass over us on it's way north. It is picking up moisture from the ocean and is acting as a nor'easter which means we will get hammered.

This is a shot this morning around 9am from my front porch window before I decided to venture out for some pictures. We have all been enjoying the scene from this venue and I think it is where I will stay for the rest of the day. I plan on using the time to read my Nikon manual and learn to use the new camera now that the holiday rush is over, for the next photo shoot , hopefully!

The view from my kitchen window, pardon the screen, of the back yard around the same time.

Crepe Myrtle berries and the church across the street.

Here's hoping everyone who is in the path of this storm stays safe and warm and keeps power!


  1. Beautiful pictures, Laura! I love snow, honestly, and a winter without it doesn't feel like winter to me. We are getting 6+ inches today in Richmond (I think 5"-6" is already on the ground with more coming down). Stay warm and safe!

  2. Oh, such beautiful beautiful snow. Your house looks like something out of a fairy tale. Hope you are cozy, safe and able to make the best of the weather. I'd share my punkin pie with you if I could. xo

  3. we were totally bypassed up in Frederick...I have mixed feelings about it :) Absolutely love your could use any of them as your next year's Christmas card!

  4. Such beautiful pictures! It makes me miss my fathers farm in Lovingston VA! Such beauty where you live...oxo

  5. I LOVE your house! And your photos are terrific! I can't wait to get my camera (I think it's like yours?) -- but it's not due in until sometime around Jan 10.

    Merry Christmas!
