Got Snow ?

"In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Long ago.
Christina Rossetti, 1872 ~ A Christmas Carol.

Snow on snow describes our winter here. We are going for more snow tomorrow and it will have to just pile on top of the rest. It is still so cold and still will snow anyway.
It is a nice writing.

No, no got snow. We did last year, lots of it, but this year, just rain, rain, and more rain. It's raining right now...

I love that hymn, Jo... It's one of my winter fav's...

NO snow here yet... They say we'll get some Thurs. But--it's so cold, I won't be able to enjoy it --IF we get any... Oh Well!!!

Hugs,
Betsy
