We're in the midst of the big 2009 snow that hit the eastern US. It started Friday evening and kept going well into Saturday night. I haven't measured it, but looks like about 18" to 20" of white stuff. Thankfully, we have plenty of supplies and don't need to go anywhere, so we haven't done much to dig ourselves out.

My camera frustrations got the better of me last week. I broke down and ordered a Nikon DSLR. It arrived just in time for the snow. :) Things were sort of gray on Saturday while the snow was falling, but we woke up to sunshine today.

All this snow has been great for staying indoors with my hobbies. I'm in the midst of some socks, and even have some more stitching planned. I'll have pics of all that stuff soon.

Great pictures! Your new camera was obviously just what you needed! I can't believe how fast you were able to use it - I'd still be reading the manual!

Love the pictures. So pretty and perfect for a White Christmas. My daughter got out of town late Thursday from Arlington. Sister in Winchester is enjoying the winter wonderland like you.
Merry Christmas and enjoying the extra time with your needles. :)

Juanita, your pictures are so good and seems as though you figured out the new camera real quick :) Herman was traveling from Philly Friday and was just ahead of all the snow. If he had stayed until Saturday, he would have been snowed in for sure.
