On A Snowy Evening


On Tuesday, December 9, we had a snowstorm, and a snow day . . .

Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Gorgeous pics! I should post the pictures of snow we have up here already! If it keeps up, this is going to be a record year.

I have been so busy lately, I have to catch up on your blog. Tell Boychick that I'm glad he enjoyed my Thanksgiving poem :)

Nice photos!

Our first snow here at home was November 30th and I lazed around and didn't take photos early in the day!

We had a surprise snow when we were in Cape Cod on November 22 and I got some snowy pics that day.

No time yet to blog them...

Hope you are well!

Thanks, everyone!

Kaber, I suspect you don't get very much snow where you are. My husband went to college in SLO and he lived in Los Osos, and he says that fog in the summer is the major "weather" there.

But New Mexico is very different than Arizona. It is much higher than Phoenix or Tucson, so even southern New Mexico gets a fair amount of snow, although it is on the same latitude as Jerusalem. We live in the middle of the state. Albuquerque is over 5,000 feet, and we live in the mountains east of there. Our house is at 7500 feet, so we get the high-country snow.

We don't get as much snow or rain as I remember from growing up in the Midwest, but we get all four seasons here.
