Hit by Snow Storms

Its that time of the year that, living in the north eastern states of US, one can't escape a snowstorm. This is my second winter in the US and so far I have already seen 5 snow storms so far. I have to admit I love to watch it snow, actually who doesn't. As long as one is indoors, wrapped up and the heater is keeping us warm, everybody loves it.

What I love most about the snowfall, is to stick my tongue out like a little gal to let those tiny little 6 pointed star shaped crystals settle on it. I love to see house roof tops covered with snow. I love how the roads look so clean when the snow is precipitated on them. I love to watch little kids make a snowman and throw snowballs at each other. I love to watch people bring their dogs out for a walk....its fun to watch people wearing layers of warm clothes, with their nose and toes freezing away to glory but the are still out there walking in the snow.

So this week we here hit with another snowstorm, although the B'more-DC area just had about 6"-8" of snow, while NY state had about 12"-15" of snow. Below are some pictures from the last few snow storms I have seen.

This was the first snow storm in Feb 2010 in DC with 12" of snow and DC wasn't equipped for it.

Dr.Mystery cleaning the drive way. The roads were not even clean from the this snow storm and another one was expected the next day. We ran out of groceries.

This one is from NYC around Christmas 2010, 15" of snow.

How could I miss out Ice Staking at The Pond at Bryant Park.

This is from the Storm day before. Although a lot of it has been cleaned up, it's just so nice to sit at the window with a cup of tea in your hand and look outside.

Look at our pool, the water has turned into ice. It's so hard to even spot the sun lounges. BTW we had a power outage for almost 12 hours.

Dr Mystery took me for a drive and then some hot chocolate.

BTW, I must give credit to Dr.Mystery for processing these pictures. Thanks hon. On that note, let me share with you Dr.Mystery's photoblog - My point of view. Do check it out!!!
