The large snow storm that started last Thursday night, and lasted until Shabbat afternoon left our mountain top town covered in a very thick blanket of snow that was (and still is) breathtakingly beautiful and very uncharacteristic for us. We fortunately had heat and an amazing front row view as the snow fell, while others were less fortunate suffering damage from fallen trees and some were without electricity.
A traditional stone home just up the street from us has rarely seen snow like this.
Vivid sunsets cast a blue light on the snowy mountains.
Looking north, with Lebanon just over the horizon. A gorgeous view anytime, a stunning one blanketed in snow.
Tomorrow (Thursday) my boys will return to school after almost a week of vacation on account of our city's inability to deal with snow in such quantities, while my daughter has another day or so of vacation, so we may have to take one last walk in the snowy forest!
And of course no snow days would be complete without a snowman and even an igloo, both of which my kids constructed on our porch. The latest news is that we may be in for another snow storm in a week or so, which is fine with me, more excuses to cuddle up and crochet, and in fact this whole weather thing may just be on account of my crocheting up a storm! What can I say?
