Winter's Tapestry

I'm so glad that I now live in an area where we get snow. It normally doesn't snow that much in northern Virginia, but this year, we've had tons of snow for our area. I love it. On Wednesday, I went to dinner with my sister to a favorite place called Clydes. It's a wonderful place that's been reconstructed from old barns that were marked for demolition. One part of the restaurant is a wonderful old barn from Vermont. The timbers were taken apart, marked, and then reassembled here in Ashburn. I love it. It's reminds me of Vermont.

While we were eating dinner, it started to snow. I ran out to grab my camera and took these wonderful shots.

Part of the Pergola and what I think is part of an outdoor bar.

Looking out at the snow falling from under the Pergola.

It was a very gentle, softly falling, silent snow. The kind that makes you want to wander around outside while huge snowflakes softly cling to your eyelashes and coats everything it touches like frosting. When I woke the next morning, this what I saw from my apartment.

We're now under a winter storm warning with a promise of at least 12 to 14 more inches starting tomorrow into Saturday. Sounds like a great time to catch some old movies, make homemade soup, and blog.

Gee, I think you might want to invest in a pair of snowshoes. You have more snow in your neck of the woods than we have here in Southern Maine. Stay safe!

Your photography is phenomenal. Every one looks like it could be a Christmas card.

Stay warm.
