What a surprise for North Carolina!

A beautiful blanket of snow.

Otis and Riley ventured out.....

but not very long.

We took a drive around town to do a few errands.

Driving past the mall there was a flock of sea gulls. They looked so pretty in the snow.

The nice thing about snow in the south is that it can be enjoyed for a day or two, and then it's gone.

Beautiful while it lasts!

Looks like Otis & Riley really enjoyed themselves.
Is the snow gone already?
We've been snow covered in NJ for weeks, great photo ops.

Nice pictures of an astonishing landscape!!!
Here, in Portugal, blizzards are also uncommon but lately there have been snow storms in some parts of the country creating the most incredible scenes.

Greetings from Portugal

Absolutely gorgeous seasonal pictures!
I know that snow is rare in parts of NC; enjoy it.;))
You have more snow than we up here in Scandinavia; I am almost a bit jealous.;)

I was so excited when snow was in the forecast, but we got nothing. I am enjoying your pictures especially the one of your house covered in snow. It looks so pretty & cozy. Also love the picture of Otis & Riley's pawprints in the snow.

It's beautiful Donna! We only got about an inch here in Hendersonville, but I was happy to see that!

The snow is gorgeous! You should paint your house this way. What kind of vine is that around your doorway? I love it.

Welcome to the snow club! Looks like the dogs had some fun too. It is pretty when it first comes down...but up here it keeps coming and coming!!
Beautiful pictures!

Donna, this is a literal winter wonderland! And those babies -- they are just precious. Makes me miss our two Min Pins SO much. Hug Otis and Riley for me. :-)

Love how your birdbath looks covered in snow. All of your pictures are amazing. Thanks for sharing. We got the cold today sans the snow. Yours is much prettier and a lot more decorative! :-)



Rosie's Whimsy said...

Oh Donna, your pictures are beautiful! That is the best knowing it will be gone in a few days :-)

We have a covering of about 5 inches but again this year just too many ice storms.

I am ready for Spring!

Sue said...

We could use a nice day of snow....yes, just one day. After all it is the South....

Sherri said...

Donna, I'm from Charlotte and I posted some snow pics on my blog too-take a look if you want! The snow is gone today! That's definitely what I love about living here. Thanks for sharing!

Tara said...

Wow, Donna, you got more than a dusting! Looks gorgeous!

Patsi said...

Amazing !
It's on every news station.
Sure is pretty.

Ruth Welter said...

I love your snow photos Donna...although let me say, I wish I lived in a state where snow is a surprise....I unfortunatley do not. : )

Otis and Riley are so brave. Rudi the doxie refuses to venture out when the weather is anything less than perfect.

Sheila@Simple Indulgences said...

Your photos are lovely, so amusing to me to see snow down there..!
If you want I can send you some of ours.
The picture of your house in the snow is beautiful and would make a geat Christmas card for next year.
Stay warm..!

Meggie said...

So you say your snow goes away in a day or two....wanna tell me how to make that happen up here in PA? Great photos, Donna! Your house(?)is charming.

Mary said...

I'm SO JEALOUS! We had nothing more than a dusting down here that disappeared by noon.

Your photos are so pretty. Happy Dogs!

Jean said...

Super snow pictures! Your home looks lovely in snow. You should add this post to Snowy Sunday. Jean
