Yesterday was a great day for snow! When I first moved to Nashville back in December 2009 there were many people who told me it didn’t snow here, but that first January we received quite a bit of snow. Much more than I have seen here since. I think God knew that I needed to see that at those juncture of my move here to help solidify the reasons for me moving here in the first place. I had left so much behind, I needed something to give me joy and peace about my decision and I think the snow helped.
All these years later and I still get my little bit of snow each year and yesterday was no different. At our house, it wasn’t enough to even make a good snowman, but other parts of the area got quiet a bit. It was still enough to make me reach for my camera and capture part of the day.
The pictures of the trees below are all from the neighbors houses across the street. We don’t have any big trees like that in our yard.
When we came to look at the house the seller had a flag hanging on the front porch and it made the house look so much better. We are a military family and the flag represents so much to us. We were surprised on the day we moved in that she had left it here. I think she left it because she knew my husband had served and it was her gift to us to leave it. On this particular day Old Glory looked good in the snow.
Do you have snow where you live? If so, is it just dustings or do you get several feet at a time? I’m not sure I could live in an area that gets several feet, but I wouldn’t mind visiting at least once. After a visit I might change my mind and give living there a try. Something about that gypsy spirit of mine that likes to wander to far away places.
