Let It Snow

We are having a winter wonderland in Kent, Ohio. We almost had all the snow melted away and from a slow rain all day bur things are changing today. This is my mailbox and paper tubes after last weeks snow storm
The house was decorated for Winter.
The garage took on a special appeal.
Today the salt trucks were out spreading the streets because we are to freeze tonight.
I got pretty close as the truck slowed down for a School Bus. This is a mixture of snow and salt as they both come down onto the streets.
I thought this field gave the feel of the conditions we are under today.
Winter could be here to stay. I wonder what my daughter from Mexico will thinks when she arrives from the sunny South.

I've experienced winter in Korea and Japan before and I quite liked it, for the first few times anyway. Lovely photos, I'm wishing for a white Christmas. But until something magical happens to let it snow in the tropics, I'll limit myself to a white sand beach Christmas :)

Wonderful snow pictures we had just a dusting here in NC of Friday. I sure do miss the snow of NJ and so do my kids.Keep safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Beautiful, all I got to show is ducks. BTW... stop tailgating that truck! We don't want to loose you! :D

Tina said...

Oh I love looking at your pictures but sooo do not want that at my place yet!! It does make for a wonderful winter wonderland look which is great for your daughter's visit! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Ah--I'm so jealous, FG..... BUT--if you have to drive in that junk, the best thing to do is to follow a road scraper!!! Be Careful in the morning--if there's alot of ice!!!

great cold pictures. I'll just look at them and hopefully the snow won't come down here in DE to stay :)

Lew said...

You've got some serious cold already! We've only dropped into the 20's a couple of nights. Great pics and story about the silk mill on your World post. I have seen similarly designed cotton mills in the south, though not as big. And I like your rose post - nice work with the editting!

evlahos said...

for sure, those are very cool shots :)

antigoni said...

Carletta said...

Those icicles are pretty cool FG!

Pretty Me!! said...

Gardenia said...

Your pictures make my teeth chatter. How beautiful it all looks.

Darla said...

I just think it's all so beautiful, I bet you didn't use a sprinkler for the icicles on the garage!!

The Birdlady said...

Brrrr!

Tom- That is quite a bit of snow compared to Columbus. We have none on the ground here. I like your "record courier" and what looks like a green beacon journal paper boxes.

Judi: I wasn't that close to the truck, 50 feet back. The 10X zoom definitely makes it look closer plus some cropping. I was stopped in the second photo and the truck just started to move. I guess it was creative photography.

Looking cold but pretty over there!

Leedra said...

Looking soooooooooo cold. Hope the icicles don't bring the gutters down. I remember as a child we would get so excited when there were icicles. We were in Georgia and didn't get them every year.

George said...

Your cold weather made it down here, but not the snow. It's been a long time since I've seen so many icicles.

Ms. Hays said...

Oh, I love snow, but we hardly ever get snow here though. All around us will get their share, but for some reason - we get left out!

RazorFamilyFarms.com said...

Goodness! I feel chilly just looking at all of those! I'm back from Virginia where I did see snow and snow flurries -- something I have missed since moving to Georgia.

I'm back!!!! I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth and only left Friendship Bread behind!!! LOL!!!

Blessings!

it's pretty cold there! it's good that i live in a tropical country because i can't stand too much cold.

Stacey Huston said...

Wow fishing guy, you can keep the cold. it has been in the 50's here, and I am loving it. Can stay this way till we get a bit more work done, then I will be ready for a deep snow winter.. have a great turkey day and enjoy your family..

kjpweb said...

Glad to be in the 60's temperature wise! :)
Cheers, Klaus

Warren Baker said...

Looks like you could do with some loft insulation FG. All your warmth is going through the roof, causing those icicles to hang of the guttering! exciting weather anyway, better than our 20min flurry!!

Jack and Joann said...

Oh---ohh! That's more virtual snow and ice and driving behind snow trucks than I can stand. My gosh!
Buckeyes from northeast Ohio have to be strong and sturdy to handle that.

I think I'm glad I'm here in Virginia. No snow or ice yet. Just a little colder than October.

Everybody, have a Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!

Kathiesbirds said...

All I can say is brrrrrr-beautiful!

Bernie Krausse said...

Wow, icicles! We are having a mild season here in Western WA so far. The world has just about everything to offer and experience at this one particular moment. And surfing the Internet makes one see that all the more clearer.

Marie said...

WOW! What a "cold" series, hehe. It's raining where I live today.

Mary said...

So much show already and such serious looking icicles! Brrrrrrrrr.

Tommy V said...

Carletta said...

You haven't posted again since I was here but maybe you will see this - just want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

imac said...

tipper said...

Wow so much snow! So early in the year too. Very pretty-wish we had some down south.

Gina said...
