Before, During & After

The weather channel was predicting our first snow of the 2012-2013 winter. 
I thought I'd journal it in photos, beginning the evening before. 


 I love watching the sunset from our front porch.
Beautiful, huh?

The next day, Saturday, my husband and I decided to go to town before the snow started. 
As usual, we ended up driving in it. Well, he did and I took pictures :)


It was so messy at this point, but the flakes were huge!


Obviously, this area had gotten the snow first. It really was pretty coming down that hill. 


Once we got home, this is what we saw. It continued to snow for a bit more but by late afternoon we realized it was over...boo hoo!
In a matter of about two hours, it went from the above photo to this. 



The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.
~Psalm 65:8

God sure does know how to paint the perfect canvas, doesn't He?!

  18. I really enjoyed your photo journalling. I've never seen snow actually falling. It certainly makes the surrounds look wonderful as they wear they dusting of snow. Maybe you'll have another snow fall.
