Snow Arrives in Southern California :-)

  Yes, the little flowers I showed you just a few days ago 
are now covered in a blanket of the white stuff.
 We're so thrilled! We don't get lots of snow around here 
so we're pretty excited whenever it arrives.
 It's snowing still :-)
We haven't even taken down our outdoor decorations. 
Tomorrow will definitely be a snow day around here. It arrived in early evening, 
so the kids didn't get to do much playing in it. 
My daughter got creative though :-)
Now I'm off to bed....because my twins will be up bright and early!

Snow is such a lovely gift of winter! Glad you have some too! We still have snow on the ground from our squall last week, it's been so pretty, very cold but sunny and beautiful! Enjoy!

Meg said...

How exciting! That is so awesome. Care to send some up here? :)

michelle said...

Oh the flowers! The snow does look really pretty though. You have more than we do here in Michigan, it all melted last week! Have a wonderful snow day!!!! Stay warm! :)

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Snow, snow... wonderful snow! I love seeing snow pictures! We only get snow here about every 10-15 years... we're about due, but no luck. Every winter, my kids wonder if this will be the year we get snow. The last time was when my oldest was 2 (she's 13 now).
Have a great day playing in the snow, my friend!
Jo :)

Carole said...

I just heard that today on the news. Weird we have only mud now.....aren't we suppose to get all the snow???lol
Enjoy it! and don't forget to make snow angels!

Michelle said...

Marcia, I haven't visited in a while and can't believe that you have snow. I'm socked in here with -21C (feels like -30 C) weather and the snow is all around. I always imagine California with palm trees and beaches. Guess you're just like us up North - snowed in. Hope you all enjoyed your day and hope that the snow doesn't last too long. You do get tired of it after awhile. (I know hard to believe).

Farm Girl said...

So glad you got snow! It snowed all around us but not here. It was cold enough I am sure. Today is gorgeous though. I do like sunshine. So glad your boys got to play in some anyway.

How fun for you--- NOT so fun for us in the Midwest. Should you want MORE snow just say the word and I will start the semi-trailer rolling your way.

Have fun playing in the snow with the kids tomorrow- Hugs- Diana
