It snowed! This lifelong California girl is having to adjust to living in an area with four seasons.  I have vacillated between excitement and dread over the possibility of snow- and now it has happened.  Fortunately, I’ve been in training for the last 10 years or so through my visits to our daughter in Montana and Wyoming and realize this inch or so of snow is no big deal.  But when I hear Prescott residents reminisce about the winter where they had 8 feet of snow (I think it was back in the eighties) or hear my friend, Debbie, talk about HER first winter here when they were stuck inside for days at a time, I know that it is important to be prepared.

Because of our frequent trips to Yellowstone, I do own an adequate winter wardrobe, including these boots, which I love.  I photographed them today in response to the Flickr topic, something I wear.


And, in case you are curious,  here is what our house looked like yesterday morning:

Funny- I don’t think I ever posted photos of our Benicia house on my blog, but I have posted at least 4 photos of this house that I can think of (at sunset, with stars, with Christmas lights, and now with snow).   The blue sky in this photo quickly gave way to gray clouds, which hung around all day. But there has been no more snow, and almost half has melted away in the front.  No more snow predicted for this week- at least not yet!

  1. Awesome photos, Melinda.
    Hard to imagine that much snow on the ground with that gorgeous blue sky, eh? By the way, you have a beautiful home 🙂
