UNEXPECTED

Should have known that with a sky like this something was coming up!

Yet all seemed at rest after the sky colors faded. The reflection of the railing of the
stairs (going down) of the deck you see here.

(Two days ) before Thanksgiving the rain turned to snow. Since
we expected it to melt before the night was over, I took this shot with enough snow. This means you can’t see that ( left side of the gazebo ) the front wicker pattern, is a gate. (half door!)

but each season has its beauty!

Debbie at One Word Sunday asked for Overlap, and Say Cheese
Not to mention, my thankfulness Hubs was strong enough to create this view, after his surgery. The story of this snow drama you can read here.

No one was more surprized Hubs had to shovel snow the second day (here, the beginning), since the snow on Thanksgiving day (biggest celebration in the USA, after Christmas!) was now 10 inches thick. Several calls to my daughter “we might not make it!” Thanks to an unknown neighbor with a snow machine, who Hubs met at the mail boxes around the corner, he had to get out for a celebration too. He was so kind to snow plow our half circle driveway! So we could be in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with our oldest daughter and family.

  1. So lovely to see the snow, Jesh! There is always something extra festive about snow falling around the major holidays of the year. As if the dusting of white adds a special sweetness and contentment, like icing sugar on a freshly baked cake.
    Thank you for taking part in the “My Sunday Best” meme.

    1. Gordon, before I forget, I read (I think on another blog) that some people do “flower hunting.” When they have found one, they look for another site, and another, and another. The flower in question were the poppies:)
      Am way behind in Christmas prep, no tree and no lights yet, lol. Presents – am working on it. Have the feeling this will be a colder and longer winter. Yes, wishing you and your famfly a very merry and cosy Christmas:)

    1. Thank you Jean! It was such an unexpected surprise (both the snoe, and the neighbor’s help ) that I wanted to spend a whole post on it A Thursday challenge asked for “baby”
      and this is our youngest grand child, now 7. from the beginning, a hard to handle (for her mom) and unusual girl who loves to pick up lizzards and bug,and wants a snake for Christmas. She must talk about it a lot, because her mom told me she’s getting her one!

  4. Great photos of snow Jesh – it really was unexpected there! In the southern Finland the rain has melted all snow away… I wish we get new snow till Christmas.

  5. For a while there was a snow warning for Lemoore around Thanksgiving, but it warned up enough to keep it to just rain. We love In n’ Out Burgers, but sadly there are none up north near Bellingham. We’ve seen a few already on the road heading south to Los Angeles, but none have parking lots big enough for our RV. I’m sure we’ll find one somewhere. – Margy

  6. Ten inches of snow, that’s insane. And it’s been in the 40s here, really just beautiful so of course you see a guy wearing flip flops and shorts standing next to a lady in a winter jacket.

  7. I love a good snow like that, however it does make for a mess. Glad you were able to make it! Thanks for linking up.

    1. Yes, Teresa, you could say that. California is know for warm weather, like in Florida. Now, this is the North part of the state, but again still we are supposed to be under the snow line:):) Am not complaining though, because snow always gives beautiful images!

    1. Thanksgiving was lovely. We made over the mountain and back and beat the storm.

      Our next door neighbor is buying a snowblower and said she’d repay us by doing our sidewalk. He-Man has been doing hers. 🙂

      How was your Thanksgiving?

    2. Enjoyed good food, and seeing the teens (grands-oldest daughter’s family) getting interested in what their future will be. Two are in college, so they’re having the end of semester exams jitters:) Wow, mine seem so long ago!
