Oh Yhea!!!! It has snowed in Mississippi

Well it is looking alot more like Christmas in Mississippi.We got 5 inches of snow yesterday.It was the most beautiful snowfall we have ever saw.That is because snow in Mississippi is far and in between.We did get a small snow last year about 1 inch,but to Mississippi 5 inches is almost a blizzard.We are accustom to very dry, humid Summers and cool, mild Winters,so snow is a real treat for us.It can be a bad thing in away because people do not know how to drive in the snow so there are alot of people who sit in ditches and else where til some one can come and pull them out. Limbs heavy with snow breaking and bringing down power lines,there were quite a few with loss of electricty.We were lucky we did not lose ours,but my sister has been without lights for two days,hope she gets them back tonight.The children enjoy the snow ,my grands have been out playing and eating snow for two days now.My daughter,the kids and I rode around to look at our community and take pictures and we saw some beautiful sites.It is amazing how beautiful the woods are when they have snow hanging from the trees and all over the ground underneath them.God can create some amazing wonders for us to see in our lives and the snow is one of his finest wonders,the whole world seem to be brighter with all the fresh snow yesterday.We probably will not see another snow this winter ,even though one on Christmas Day would be wonderful.I am just glad that my grandkids have gotten to see just how beautiful the world can be with a fresh snow everywhere.The snow just made it feel more like winter and Christmas time.You see we are use to it being in the 60's on Christmas and Christmas should be cold and white. The frist four pictures are bfrom our driveI have about 100 more







These are of the kids playing in the snow at my house,our pond out back,and one of my flower beds.I have about 100 of pics from the house too.Just had to pic a few to show,wish I could show you all of them.
