So where's Santa? I mean it certainly must be Christmas time and not 11 days before Spring begins, because this is what I saw when I woke up this morning.....
Yes, our torrential flooding rains turned into an overnight snowfall changing our backyard into a winter wonderland. I honestly don't know what to wear each morning - Genuine yellow fisherman rain suits complete with hip boots or down-filled snow parkas. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I were up by 6:00am and we gave a "WOW" like the little kid from "A Christmas Story".  It was really pretty outside.
You can't even tell that under the beautiful snow is about 3 feet of muddy soupy gushy sinking mud pits.  We both took a moment to admire the beauty of nature.
Every finger of every branch was filled with white snow and we at once felt renewed and refreshed. I felt as if winter was saying, don't forget about me.  Don't forget how beautiful I am. Don't forget to appreciate me and your love for the beauty of a winter landscape. After having weeks of nothing but mud and rain, the whiteness and peacefulness of the snow was a welcome sight. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I sipped our coffee together and gazed out the window, knowing it would soon be gone, and grateful for the glorious artwork right outside our door.

  1. We had eight inches of fresh snow on Wednesday but then it warmed up and rained melting almost all of it and causing some major flooding. I like snow but am looking forward to spring!
