White #Christmas - #SaturdaySnapshots

On December 25, 2017, Seattle and surrounding areas experienced their third white Christmas in the last 100 years. I had to take some photos of that amazing event.

snow boots is timely!

Although the snow was beautiful and I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood in it, I was glad it only lasted a couple of days. Is the weather snowy in your part of the world?

Gorgeous! As much as I'm happy not to live where it snows, I always enjoy looking at it. Especially in photos. Thanks for sharing!

Here are MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS

What a delight for you! We had a white Christmas one year, way back in 2004. It was amazing to see snow here in Houston, and to have so much fall on Christmas. Oddly, we've had two snowfalls this year, and the kids had so much fun.

Thanks for sharing your photos!

During the seven years we lived in Beaumont, Texas, we saw snow only once. Even growing up farther north in Dallas, we weren't assured of snow every winter. Snowy days were always special events for me, and they still are. I'm just grateful that the snow doesn't stay for long here in the Pacific Northwest... and that I don't have to drive in it.
Thank you, Laurel-Rain and Deb, for stopping by and leaving comments.

This so reminds me of my home town of Darrington WA. We almost always had white Christmases--VERY white! Thanks so much for posting, Sandy--a real treat.

Colleen: Based on pictures I've seen of Darrington, your white Christmases must have made the landscape even more beautiful. Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog post. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.

This was our first winter home in the cold in 5 years! It has been very cold but not much snow in Toronto.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Jackie: Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. One good thing about dealing with snow -- it makes you appreciate rain. We're back to our usual Pacific Northwest weather. Rain, temps in the 40s. I'm okay with that.
I'm looking forward to more photos of your travels in the future.

You always take such attractive photos, Sandy! You've evoked a magical fairyland here. Thanks for posting.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you, Judy. The snow was so beautiful that it would be hard to take a bad picture. I'm glad you enjoyed my post. I'm also glad the snow didn't stay around for long!

how great to have a white christmas. Ours was grey. I hope it will not take too maney more years to get a white one. :)

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Our Christmases are usually gray and wet. It was a delight to see snow for a change.
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

I love to see first impressions of snow, whether it's pets or people! What a great shot of your grand daughter! When it only lasts a few days, it's a good snow for me!

Pretty! We had heavy rain the last two days, and while I loved it, I wouldn't want it to be an every day thing!

So lovely! We had a dusting of snow on Christmas Eve day here in Oregon. It later froze, which made conditions treacherous. Luckily, we weren't going anywhere so we could just enjoy the appearance of it!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Luckily, snow in the Pacific Northwest usually doesn't stick around for long. That's fine with me! Rain, however, is almost constant during this time of year. For some reason, that doesn't bother me.

Little angel on the snow is sooo cute!
