A Busy Snow Day (Weekend)

I thought this year there wasn’t any snow day.  Well, there was one that came during the night before but there was not really that much to be seen in the morning. I did not count that one. Today, it finally snowed for about a couple inches. That was about right to keep the tradition of the winter around here going (no more than this please). Despite the pouring snow, people were busy as usual or even busier …

Snow and Busy Weekend

It snowed!

Snow and Busy Day  2

The parking of the local supper market was packed.


The ground temperature was warm. The snow melted away quickly. I think that was a good thing.  I fear accumulations that turn into thick ice later.

Seemed like Christmas again.

Time to get inside.

    We had a lot of snow in the middle of January, which was terrible!! You’re so lucky you did not have that much.
    Snow is beautiful, I don’t like dangerous condition of roads after that, though.


    • YellowCable February 16, 2013 / 10:11 pm

      I know how it goes when there are a lot of snow. I was hoping to be a mild winter without snow but it came. Yes, snow is beautiful to see. I also do not like the trouble it left later on.

    Beautiful photos!!! I am ambivalent about snow, beatutiful to look at, and ski on, but scary when there is a blizzard or too much ice on the road…..


    • YellowCable February 17, 2013 / 7:16 am

      I completely agreed with you too. The snow just look good from far away. I will have to add to my book that it is also good for skiing. Other than these, I am also scared of it. I felt relieved to see there is no snow on the road this morning!

      Thank you Cindy.


    • YellowCable February 17, 2013 / 7:17 am

      Thank you Gallivanta. I am glad too that there was no accumulation and the road is clean this morning. Whew!!

    I have never seen any snow before ^ – ^ you know, since our country has only 2 seasons – the dry and the rainy one . Snow sounds very romantic,to me ^ – ^


    • YellowCable February 17, 2013 / 11:47 am

      Yes, I know snow looks so charming. Having to deal with it in real life is just about the opposite. 🙂


      • yinyin February 17, 2013 / 1:21 pm

        my friend told me that the snow can become quite dirty , will it be 😦 ? ^ – ^ I hate the rainy season of my place, too , but when those day were gone , I turned to miss them , complex me ! Do you have the same feeling with snow , yellow cable ?


        • YellowCable February 17, 2013 / 5:34 pm

          Your friend is quite right. Snow on the ground can turn quite dirty when it mixed with dirt. You can often see white snow with tainted with black dirt near the road side.

          I think you can relate to rain. You can get wet and get dirty with rain too more or less for sure. 🙂


  5. yinyin February 18, 2013 / 12:41 am

    🙂 yup ,you are so right, having a walk under the heavy rain is definitely not a romantic idea for me ! But I won’t mind staying at home, holding a hot cup of tea and watching the world “taking bath”, the song of the rain somehow gives me peace ^ – ^ ! good luck with your snow, Yellow cable !


  6. Saajida February 18, 2013 / 4:03 am

    it’s so beautiful! Pity it doesn’t snow that much here in South Africa.


    • YellowCable February 18, 2013 / 6:54 am

      Thank you Saajida. IMO, I think if you have seen it real once (or may be a few times) then I am not sure you will be fond of it again. It is a bit of excitement seeing snow falling but that was about it. The concern of the consequence starts to come it soon after that.


    • YellowCable February 18, 2013 / 8:37 pm

      I know. Those were the only moments (taking photos) that I enjoyed about snow. Thank you 🙂

    Oh I just love snow. Of course, it’s easy for me to say that, living where we don’t get any and I don’t have to do any post snow cleanup 🙂


  9. omosth February 20, 2013 / 7:07 am

    มันสวยแล้วก็มีเสน่ห์มากๆ เลยนะคะ
    ชอบมากเป็นพิเศษเลยฮับ ^^


    • YellowCable February 20, 2013 / 7:10 am

      ขอบคุณครับ ชอบภาพนั้นเป็นพิเศษ เหมือนกันครับ

    These are lovely snowflakes! We’ve had only one or so afternoons like this ourselves.


  11. hrosez February 21, 2013 / 3:33 pm

    Gorgeous pictures! 🙂


  12. Lisa Murray February 27, 2013 / 2:21 am

    this flurry of snow looks so pretty! Fine if it snows on a weekend when I don’t have to drive to work! Great photos!


    • YellowCable March 5, 2013 / 7:06 pm

      I like that part too (snows on a weekend). It also gives an opportunity to take some pictures. Thank you.


  13. niasunset March 4, 2013 / 6:16 am

    WOW! Seems that the winter is still there, by the way where is this place? I loved these photographs, especially the first one and the tree at the end… Thank you, have a nice week, love, nia


    • YellowCable March 4, 2013 / 6:39 am

      Thank you that you like the pictures. The place is Cary, North Carolina. Please have a great week too. 🙂


  14. yinyin March 6, 2013 / 12:18 am

    does the spring come to your place yet ,YellowCable? ^ – ^


    • YellowCable March 6, 2013 / 9:49 pm

      No, it has not arrived fully yet. Some trees or plants start to grow back now.


  15. Sartenada April 10, 2013 / 8:36 am

    Although we have yet snow and the nearby lake is frozen, I love Your photos.


  16. Otto von Münchow July 3, 2014 / 6:24 pm

    I know this is a long time ago, but did you capture snowfall! It really feels so winter – which of course is almost absurd now in the middle of the summer. My favourite is the first one with people bending forward to protect themselves against the snowfall.


    • YellowCable July 3, 2014 / 7:52 pm

      I hope seeing snow falls in summer ease of the heat a bit 🙂 That first picture is my favorite too. I just walked from the same direction of those two people into the store. Thank you Otto!

    Found this old article, happy to see some snow 🙂 In my next blog I will share a terrible snowfall we experienced last january.
    Did that snow stay, do you remember? Looks very beautiful.

      Ah, you like snow. Does it snow often in Ireland?

      I believe it stayed but I do think it stuck around too long. There were 3 or 4 occasions that the snow packed and turned into ice and lasted for a week. I am glad you like them. Thank you.

        These are beautiful photographs. No, there is no snow in Ireland, not every year. Just a little blanket on the top of the mountains, some snowflakes in the air and dirty pavement 🙂 . The previous snowfall was in the 1980-s, and the latest – in January 2018. 40 years between 🙂

          That is the amount of snow I like. As we speak there are 6″ of snow outside around here. The roads are closed and flights are canceled.. Winter comes too soon this year.

            Oh that is a huge amount of snow. Too much for my liking 🙂 Good for a couple of hours, but after that – please, melt, dear Mr. Snow 🙂

              It does not look that way from your picture but you can’t never tell for sure. I hope it all melt away soon.
