I never should have mentioned snow.
It started snowing about 8:00 p.m. last night and snowed most of the night. We woke up to a bright white landscape. I was up early (for me) like a kid on Christmas. Quit laughing! I haven't seen snow in almost 10 years! And Lester has never seen snow! I got the camera out and was ready for his first steps in the snow. (FYI, he's a dog, not a small child. I know it's hard to tell from the way I talk about him.) And guess what! There's not a single picture of Lester in the snow...because he wouldn't step foot in it! We have a sheltered area under our screened porch where he can do his business during inclement weather. For us, that usually means a hurricane, but apparently snow on the ground qualifies too.
But I did get some shots of the almost pristine, white neighborhood. We are about 1/2 mile from the beach...and no, I have not been over there yet, and 1/2 block from the intracoastal waterway. As I write this, the snow is already falling from the trees and the paved areas are almost clear. But isn't that the way most adults like it...gone by noon!
