Blanketed...

We have had a total of 10 inches of snow with some ice tossed in for good measure. It is so still outside, so quiet. Grace had another day off from school and Dan's place of business is closed due to the Winter storm.
Kipper has had a little fun with our neighbor's dog, Millie. That is her you can see off to the right in the last picture and in the one just before Kip's photo! It always makes me smile to see them at play...and I needed a smile. Phooey. Bill is stranded in Atlanta tonight. The airlines discontinued service into Dayton today for several hours and now, even though they are flying again, he is one of quite a few vying for an empty seat! The odds are he won't be home tonight so I am having a lovely pout about it. Hrmpf.
I hope all of you are well, safe, warm and happy. I send you all much love and many hugs!

Great pictures, Sue!!
We are in a Level 3 snow emergency for Warren Co....YEAH!!
I will go home today though, no way they are stopping me. As soon as the hubby comes in from his last call we are headed home.
Take care and keep warm.

So pretty. I wish we would get snow.

What a beautiful snowfall! Sorry your hubby is stuck out of town....bummer. At least he's not stuck out in a car somewhere...that would be REALLY cold. Glad your puppy and his friend got to frolick in the snow.

Terri and Bob said...

We had less than you, about 6 inches total. Not so much ice, either. My school was called off today but Bob's was in session! Hehehehehe!

Hang tight, Bill will be home soon.

Sorry Bill is stuck. What a beautiful snowfall you had. Where's mine? We got hit with flurries and then an ice storm last night. I didn't go to work today because of my bad ankle. Wasn't risking injuring it more. Keep safe and stay warm, Bunny Lady. xxoo

Thank goodness you can Blog without sunshine! Come see me for a laugh.

Bill is only a couple hours south of me...I'm sure that doesn't help your feelings any.
Your snow is beautiful and thankfully you didn't get the devastating ice.
Stay safe,
Kit

It's so beautiful outside today. We got the same weather you did and it's like a winter wonderland. Love your photos of it. The kids have had two days off school and they're grouching about having to go back tomorrow. They were enjoying their snow days. (And so was I!)

Lots of people around us have been out of power today, but we have been lucky enough to still have ours. It would be a cold day to have to go without heat!

all our snow was washed away with rain, we only got 3 inches of it.

Cherdecor said...

At least the dogs are having a good time. The pics are really beautiful.

Poor Bill stranded in Atlanta....I know how that feels, we have been stranded here for 25 years!!

Oh Dear Sweet Sue, I hope he made it home safe and sound today. If not, I'm praying he's home early tomorrow.
I have to say, that is a beautiful sight to see! I love the snow. My heart does go out to all that are having a rough time of it though. I read on one blog that the power has been knocked out and will be for a while. Her friend blogged for her to let everyone know. That stinks when you lose your power.
Stay safe and warm. Lovely pics, especially of Kipper and friend. :) Much love to you, with big hugs til hubby makes it home.

Carolyn said...

I hope your hubby arrives home safe and sound .
Freshly fallen snow always looks beautiful to me - and my dog used to go crazy in it ! It brought back some great memories ;o)

Warm hugs across the pond to you

Wonderful pictures! I wish we'd get just a tiny bit of snow and have school cancelled for one day.

My husband was stuck in Memphis last week due to weather somewhere and it exhausting waiting at the airport. He's flying in from New Orleans today and hopefully won't have problems!

SNOW GLORIOUS SNOW!!!!! Did that sound the least bit sincere???? Because it WASN'T I hate that damn stuff! But I liked your pictures!

Melanie said...

Hope Bill can get homem soon! The photos are beautiful! I love the look of snow and the quiet it seems to bring outside. Kip looks like he's having lots of fun - although he probably loves Ritter's even more! Lots of hugs.

Jeanie said...

Simply breathtaking. Worse than here, that's for sure, but lovely.

Stop by The Marmelade Gypsy and enter my One World... drawing! I'm offering three things!

Enjoy your snow days. So sorry Mr. Bill isn't able to be home relaxing with you all. xxxooo

Pamela said...

so beautiful - and to be causing all those problems.

Seems it keeps popping up all over the country. We're free of it right now.

Meggie said...

Wow! That's a lot of snow, Sue. Didn't get quite that much back here in PA but are expected to get more tonight....oh, joy! Hope by now Bill is home safely.

Bonnie said...

The photos are lovely. You always take fantastic pictures. I am sorry Bill is stranded. Hopefully he'll be able to catch a flight home soon. I'm saying a prayer for you.

Sheila said...

You always take such beautiful pictures. Love the ones with the doggies! I love the way they are always so fascinated with snow. So cute!

Neabear said...

Fun times eh? No? Well, I hope you get through it okay and that hubby makes it safely home. We never have those kinds of days here. No snow!

Sandi McBride said...

What wonderful pictures, Susie! I love the one of Gracie, you should get that one enlarged and framed! The pups seem to be having a good time...hope you had the mop ready...
hugs
