    Our weatherman called for rain. Told us we would have either 1 1/2 inches or maybe 2 inches. Of rain.
    While at church today ---- this is what the 'rain' produced for us when we got home!

    I think 'rain' is now spelled "S N O W".

    Most of it had melted, but as I post this ---- it is raining again --- I mean "S N O W I N G". :roll:

    We don't get rain like that here. I know the folks up north have gotten blasted with snow and cold weather this year and are tired of it. However your picture is beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a good day to get some quilting done :)

    What a beautiful sight. I love seeing snow.
    Guess that's because it doesn't snow where I live.

    Our rain was that color too. But we got about 4+". I am ready for the warm stuff. Daughter is going camping with Girl Scouts in 2 weeks and chose outside activities, Horse backriding and Archery. I told her it will be cold and wet and she said 'so'.

    It poured rain (I don't mean snow, for a change!!) all day yesterday and the temp. was 50*. This morning when I got up we had gotten about an inch of the other kind of "rain" over night. It's melting now :)

    I think all that white "rain" needs to fall so spring can arrive behind it. I am ready and the birds are starting to arrive here in Maine. Looking forward to our first robin. Right now it is the finches.

    We have had just rain here today, lots of it, thankfully as we've been quite short for the year already.

    But 'weather' aside, your view from the deck looks so much like mine from the sewing window we could be on the same property! I love it, so peaceful.

    Have no fear, spring will get here at some point. We in Upstate New York got 3+ inches of heavy snow this morning.

    I love it when everything is blanketed with snow. I mean rain. It looks so calm and peaceful.
