Winter Wonderland



This is a sight we don’t see too often here in New Orleans.



When it first started, I ran and grabbed my camera, because all I was expecting was a few flurries. But it kept snowing, and snowing, and snowing. For hours.



The kids down the streets went nuts, as did my Jordanian-born, Aussie-raised, kid-at-heart, just-home-from-college-in-Florida daughter.



My mom, who spent many years in the likes of Idaho and Alaska and South Dakota, got all teary eyed, saying, “Snow really is beautiful, isn’t it?



Yes it is.

I know exactly how your mom would feel. I was born and raised in England. I now live in Auckland, New Zealand, where we never have snow.

It was a surreal experience, especially when it just kept on snowing and snowing. And then even lingered into the next day.

Like Chap, I too missed the snow when I was in Auckland. Not enough to move to Arthur's Pass or Mount Cook or anything, but definitely enough to move to Christchurch, were we get a day or two of the white stuff a year.

I love it!

Beautiful, but not what I would expect to find in New Orleans. I suppose the children built snowmen.

Gorgeous. Our first snow in New York didn't come close to that!

By the way, I just finished When Serpents Sleep, and I want the next installment...like now!

Lovely photos. I saw the storm on the news and had to smile. Kind of neat to experience some real snow so far south. I'm in the northern part of Virginia and we still haven't seen that much snow, not that we usually do this early. Our snow, if it comes, won't be until mid January or later.

Chap, so you miss it, too?

Charles, it was fun, wasn't it?

Steve, you don't have far to go to see lots of snow now, do you?

Barbara, my mother lived in New Orleans from birth to age 29 without ever seeing snow (or a hurricane!).

Farin, wonderful to hear you enjoyed Serpents. I'm still writing the next installment!

Virginia Lady, it was a wonderful experience.
