A Norman Rockwell World

I knew the very moment my eyes
first opened...
that something had happened
during the night.
My bedroom had a new and
different light.
Away to the window
I flew like a flash...
tore open the shutters
and threw up the sash...
the first snow!
Blanketing the world
in a layer of
Making Frosty
(and me!)
grin with
It was, what I consider to be...
the perfect snow.
Covering everything...
except the roads!
It didn't stop me
from running my errands.
Then again, with Ol' Blue
(that's the name I gave my new/old
Ford pick-up)
nothing slows me down.
An intersection
I pass through
every day...
had been transformed.
My drive was filled
with breath-taking
Extraordinary! All was calm... all so bright.
Potential postcards
were everywhere
I looked.
Even when Ol' Blue
arrived back
I felt like I was
driving into a
Christmas card.
Embrace the magical moments
of these ordinary days.


  1. Jealous! No snow here, but the weatherman says we've got a chance of one to three inches tonight. It makes the holiday preparations much more festive than grey skies and rain! Enjoy!

  2. Absolutely breathtaking photos! I wish we lived where we would get more snow :( Once in awhile, we may get a white dusting, but it never seems to last more than a day. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh man, what lovely photos! What I would give to get a snow like this:)
